Imagine voting for a wall to separate Texas and Mexico, but then fly to Mexico when Texas becomes unbearable to live in because a blizzard visited for the week.

He was telling the truth when he said "There is no collusion between me, my campaign and the Russians". He never even met his campaign team.

They only predict a politician would do this, which isnt much of a surprise. Pretty much shows problem exist way beyond, just that social media is bigger now.

I don't think the writers predict the future, thats silly. They're obviously writing the future on magical paper.

Did they predict cuomo

Why aren't they specific and say a Texas Senator named Ted Cruz will abandon the state during a statewide freeze and blackouts for Cancun in 2021. They are really trying to hard to convince us they are prophets. Prophets are never wrong and Simpsons have thousands of years and thirty years of false predictions

We should just stop with the videos of the Simpson's "did they predict it". Yes!! Of course they predict everything..duh!! No question. The writers sold their souls long ago for the one power to predict all the stupid things...well all stupid things stupid people do😂😂😂 Why they will out live us all😂😂

Not exactly a prediction, things like that happened then and happen now. Some politicians are just a-holes through and through.

Probably just portraying things that have happened before. Even our Prime Minister went to Hawaii during the bushfires here last year. Having said that, it's the same episode which has already 'predicted' a few things about 2020/21.

The Simpsons writers aren't clairvoyant, they just write political punchlines that are satirically over the top... It just so happens that Republicans have sunk so low that satire actually describes them accurately now.

Guys, the segment where President Lisa is discussing with her cabinet about the budget crisis was making fun of the then popular third party, the Reform Party, whom Trump gave his support at the time. Don’t rely on the Simpsons predicting future events, life is filled with coincidences and surprises.

No. These were more like editorials for the time. No matter how things seem, it does not mean someone controls or decides our futures, they don't. The only ones who create the futures & everything in it are everyone who's here now. 🐦

@Gabriel Rodriguez 53% of texas voted for trump. texas is starting to change, the old republicans are dying and the younger people are becoming old enough to vote, and i can tell you because im one of those people who live here in texas that the majority are on the left.

@Gabriel Rodriguez clearly you don’t know anything about texas’ energy, because renewable energy makes up a tiny percent of the state’s energy. texas gets its energy mostly from nonrenewable sources like natural gas and oil and has its own power grid, because the stupid republicans think that operating their own power grid instead of being interconnected with other states is smart. terrible republican leadership in texas, can’t wait to see it flip blue someday.
Gabriel Rodriguez
@daniel neubecker Hmmmm Andrew Cuomo is in hot water about the nursing home scandal. Texas is dumb enough to have renewable energy. Let’s keep on building the keystone pipeline.

Naw. Obviously wasn't curz.. but the idea was to think of something scummy a politician would do. And its not a very rare thing for a politician to be a hypocritical lying scab

Ok so this is a common mis conception about the simpsons, so they didn't actually predict Trumps presidency those came out near his presidential candidacy and his presidency, also this was probably not even talking about Ted Cruz also in the clip it is a epidemic not a snow storm, as well as the fac in the description that they call it a scandal is truly pitiful what happened with Gov. Cuomo is a scandal, what Sen. Cruz did was really stupid and insensitive but it wasn't a scandal

No this was not a prediction. Ted Cruz isnt the first politician to do what he did, hence why this was already a politician stereotype that the Simpsons used for that joke.

Is it prediction or is it just the most comical thing they can think of actually becoming reality... Problem is, it isn't as comical when it happens in reality, I would have much preferred it staying as some outlandish comical take...
