16 years ago, The SIMPSONS broadcast an episode called BART To The FUTURE, parody of film, BACK To The FUTURE, in which Lisa Simpson becomes “the first straight woman president”!!!
Her predecessor? Donald Trump. “He left the country broke,” she sighs.
The business of imagining a President Trump goes back even further, to at least 1988, when the slender, blond real estate heir attended the Republican National Convention and was asked if he wanted to run for president one day. “If I did decide to do it...I would have a hell of a chance of winning,” Trump told Oprah Winfrey back then. His long flirtation, of course, finally ended last year. The man The New York Times described in 1973, when he was 27, as looking like Robert Redford had evolved into a still-fit, less hirsute, 69-year-old candidate for president with a model third wife, national celebrity and theatrical flair—see his announcement escalator ride that shook the world.
