It’s been a rough few days after Donald Trump defied the odds and won the 2016 Presidential Election, but this blind psychic wants to make sure that anyone on the verge of a nervous breakdown just does the damn thing already, because things aren’t going to get any better.

Known as Nostradamus from the Balkans, Baba Vanga, a blind psychic who correctly predicted 9/11, has a pretty bad vibe about Donald Trump’s America. According to her, Barack Obama will be the last president of the United States.

Yes, this all sounds terrifying, but let’s look into this prediction a bit more, shall we? The Bulgarian-born clairvoyant died in 1996 at the age of 85. Before Barack Obama won the presidency, Vanga correctly predicted that the 44th President of the United States would be a black man. Sadly she also said that he would be “the last one,” explaining that as soon as he stepped out of office, there would be a spectacular economic crisis.

“Everyone will put their hopes in him to end it, but the opposite will happen; he will bring the country down and conflicts between north and south states will escalate,” she stated.

Creepy. She also predicted that a “great Muslim war” would start in Syria in 2010, and would come to a conclusion in 2043. She reportedly said that Europe will “cease to exist” by the end of next year, leaving the continent “almost empty” and a “wasteland almost entirely devoid of any form of life.” Conspiracy theorists have latched onto that one, focusing in on ISIS activity close to Europe in Libya.

In 1989 Vanga said to have made reference to 9/11, saying that “American brethren” would be attacked by “two steel birds,” though a specific date or location was not named. She also allegedly predicted the effects of climate change 60 years ago, warning citizens that the polar ice caps would melt and cause sea levels to rise.

Honestly though, if we’ve learned anything from this election, it’s that predictions should not be trusted, but thanks anyway Vanga. We’ll keep the terrifying words in mind!
