Yesterday, thousands of Trump supporters stormed the Washington US Capitol in a violent siege that horrified viewers and was condemned by leaders the world over. In fact, videos and images of the riot showed an apocalyptic scene straight out of a dystopian movie.
And of course, wouldn’t you know it, The Simpsons predicted all of this just a few months ago. As they always do.

By now, it’s become a pattern for The Simpsons to predict everything that’s happening in the world, but it still shocked a lot of folks.
