US President Donald Trump's supporters invaded the US Capitol, on Thursday, to disrupt the certification by Congress of Democrat Joe Biden's election victory. As the violence erupted, many people thought that they might have seen it somewhere but were not able to remember where.
Well, Twitter came to the rescue to remind everyone that ‘The Simpsons’, like all the other things they have predicted, were right about this too.
In episode 18 of the seventh season that was aired on March 17, 1996, certain visuals from a segment had stark resemblance to the images and video footages of Thursday's violence. The episode was titled 'The day the Violence Died.'
Images from a more recent episode too surfaced where the Capitol building was burning.
In some of Thursday's photos, a part of the building could be seen burning after some ammunitions exploded.
