Thursday night’s episode of a popular broadcast drama will feature a character inspired by Donald Trump. Variety reports that ABC’s “Scandal,” which recently had a set visit from Hillary Clinton, teased the upcoming story line Tuesday during the show’s panel at PaleyFest in L.A.
Said “Scandal” star Kerry Washington: “You think the debates you’ve seen in the real world are fun!”
Thursday’s episode was aired during the PaleyFest session, but reporters were asked not to reveal who would be playing the Trump-inspired character. However, the Variety report notes that it is a character who has previously appeared on the show. The article adds that the theme will continue through next week.
