But The Simpsons isn't the only cartoon with prescient powers. The Boondocks, which aired on Adult Swim for four seasons in the mid-2000s, predicted an Oprah presidency.
The idea of Oprah running for President began with her powerful speech at the Golden Globes this past Sunday.
The newspaper headline isn't a throwaway joke, either. In the episode, titled "Return of the King," a cryogenically frozen Martin Luther King Jr. returns from the past and observes the modern-day political and social climate. Incredibly (but understandably) frustrated by what he encounters, King gives an impassioned speech that inspires new levels of political activism across the country. The wave of public outrage ultimately results in Winfrey's election.
Winfrey has yet to announce any official candidacy, and many people — including liberals — are wary of two millionaire celebrity Presidents back-to-back.
When Oprah is president, you just need to check under your chair during the inauguration, and you'll find keys to A NEW CAR! AND YOU GET A CAR! AND YOU GET A CAR! AND YOU GET A CAR!— 🤘TJ KIRK🤘 (@amazingatheist) January 10, 2018
