They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. So I guess the presidential candidates should all be flattered that ABC’s Scandal is imitating them. First it was Francisco Vargas (Ricardo Chavira) as Bernie Sanders in Marco Rubio’s body. Now it’s Hollis Doyle (Gregg Henry) as Ted Cruz in Donald Trump’s body.

In the episode “Pencils Down,” Scandal completely rips off the video Sen. Ted Cruz did with Independent Journal Review entitled “Making Machine-Gun Bacon with Ted Cruz.”

Compare the two:
