The 1994 episode of the The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air that featured Donald Trump was some millennial viewers’ first time meeting the man who is now rated as the least popular president in American history.
Season 4’s “For Sale By Owner” shows a slightly less bloated Trump flexing on the Banks family with a briefcase full of cash and a mean case of manifest destiny.
Young conservative Carlton faints in Trump’s presence, Hillary goes into full groupie-mode and Will tries to get on the payroll. Baby sis Ashley was the only one who wasn’t with the shits when it looked like Trump was ready to do business with the Banks. But even lightskint Aunt Viv was ready to swing on Trump and his ex-wife Marla Maples by the time they left her living room.
“Thank you for ruining my life,” Ashley told The Donald in one of the most prophetic moments in the show’s six-year history. “Everybody’s always blaming me for everything,” he lamely quipped, foreshadowing current events.
It’s safe to say that everyone in that room wishes they could go back to those simpler times right about now.
