    People Think "The Simpsons" Predicted Trump's Win But It's Not True

    A viral image claiming the show called the 2016 electoral map has nothing to do with Trump.

    A claim that The Simpsons not only foresaw Donald Trump's run for president but also predicted which states he'd carry is making the rounds online. But that claim is wrong.

    Versions of The Simpsons "prediction" have already gotten hundreds of thousands of shares on Facebook and Twitter.

    According to this now-viral meme, The Simpsons apparently predicted all the way back in 2000 that Trump would launch a presidential bid by descending an escalator at Trump Tower.

    As for predicting the electoral map, that image has nothing to do with Trump.
