After US President Donald Trump tweeted Friday that he and his wife have contracted Covid-19, ‘Did The Simpsons Predict Trump’s death’ became one of the most searched queries on the internet.
The Simpsons is one of the most popular animated TV shows in the world and one aspect of the fame of this cartoon series is the predictions it has made about many major events in the world.
The show, for example, predicted 9/11 attacks at a time when their were no apparent reasons for such an incident. It also predicted that Trump would be America’s president as early as 2000, when Trump even had no standing as a politician.
“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” US President Donald Trump tweeted Friday informing that he and his wife and the First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for Covid-19 and have been quarantined after a top aide tested positive for coronavirus.
The news came as a shocker to everyone and many in the country frantically cross-checked if it was true. In fact, “Did Trump test positive for Covid” was the top google query almost minutes after Trump posted his tweet on October 2.
Wishes started pouring in on social media for the Trumps to get well soon as people became convinced that the news of Trump testing positive for the deadly infection was not fake.
But there was something more that people looked for – The Simpsons and its “prediction” for Trump. “The Simpsons” was amongst the top related topics when one typed in “Trump” on google search in the US.
Social media was inundated with images of Trump’s character from the show lying in a casket, with many tweets claiming that his death was predicted on The Simpsons show. This made other people look for the credibility of this claim.
But fans who claimed to have watched more than 700 hundred episodes of the cartoon series have rejected this claim. They say they have not seen or heard about any episode where Trump’s character died and that’s because no such episode exists.
