Hit animated comedy series "The Simpsons" has once again sparked a different kind of humor and made news recently. A previous episode entitled "Bart to the Future" which was aired way back in 2000 has been surfacing because of its extraordinary prediction of Donald Trump's presidency. And just recently, the show decided to finally put a reaction to the former episode.

It can be recalled that the show made headlines recently as its previous episode was said to have foreseen the U.S. newly elected president, Donald Trump's victory. In the said episode, fans will see a portion where Lisa Simpson enters the White House after Donald Trump's previous term. The show that was aired sixteen years ago showed Lisa stuck in one of the country's extremely crucial situations.

In the certain clip, Bart's imagination of having Lisa, his sister, becoming the first straight female president to ever grace the U.S. has become a reality today. As seen in the video, when Lisa asked how the country's situation was, the Oval's office team responded with a statement saying that Trump's regime created an era of ultra-strong super criminals.

"The Simpsons" creators also claimed that the dystopian vision was created to warn America. In an interview with The Guardian, episode writer Dan Greaney said, "The important thing is that Lisa comes into the presidency when America is on the ropes, and that is the condition left by the Trump presidency. He also added, "What we needed was for Lisa to have problems that were beyond her fixing, that everything went as bad as it possibly could, and that's why we had Trump be president before her."

With the issue making a buzz for a couple of days this week, the hit series producer added a gag that responded to the show's famous Trump victory prediction. "The Simpsons" latest episode, the first one to air right after the election, had a fleeting scene with a gag. Bart can be seen writing tons of "being right sucks" statements on the chalkboard. This short scene clearly tells its viewers how the people behind the famous show feel about the current president's win.
