Did the Simpsons Predict the Ted Cruz Controversy?

More TV in my portfolio

The Simpsons are known for accurately predicting a lot of major pop-culture moments, and they just might have done it, again.

After the drama surrounded Ted Cruz and his trip to Cancun, fans of the show pointed to at an episode which aired in 1993.  It was titled Marge In Chains.  In it, Springfield’s Mayor, Joe Quimby, has a press conference – to inform the public about a pandemic, hitting his city. AND:  It is later revealed that Quimby made the announcement remotely – while vacationing in the Caribbean.

The mayor’s blue outfit in the episode also looks similar to suits which Cruz has worn, in the past.

If you would like to see 17 times when The Simpsons have “predicted the future,” take a look at The Wrap.  One of them is when Lisa Simpson mentioned that Donald Trump would become president.
