U.S. Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz Attempts ‘Simpsons’ Impressions


American politics, circa 2015, includes a side of animation culture.

    Even if I were planning on voting for this fool, his sheer lack of voice acting talent would turn me the other way…

    This is so cringe-inducing I think I’m going into an epileptic seizure. It’s no doubt the American people eat this stuff up though. Who knows, maybe America’s Got Talent will be the future of campaigning. I want to see Hillary Clinton sing “Old Man River” and Donald Trump do a choreographed dance to Kate Bush.

    Well, he should stick to politics, but I do have to give the guy credit for attempting something that he was completely awful at. I’m pretty sure that he knew he had absolutely no talent for imitating Simpson voices, so it’s pretty obvious that he was playing it as a joke. He didn’t do too bad at Flander’s voice, but that was because he was just playing himself: a Republican. lol

    Maybe he’s trying to show how hip and “with it” he is. “Hey, regular Americans, I know The Simpsons just like you!”. Few things are sadder than middle aged/old people trying and failing to look cool.

    If he were to become president, you can bet Ted Cruz would wage war on all those who create. He is the anti-christ of common sense and new ideas.

    not gonna lie his Kang was surprisingly cutting close to Prof Farnsworth.

    Oh, yeah. There are three questions all presidential candidates should answer.

    3. How they will reduce the national debt?

    2. What’s their stance on medical care?

    1. How good is their Disco Stew impression?

    Poor Ted doesn’t seem to realize that Americans are laughing AT him, not with him.

    I don’t get it. Is Matt Groening picking random celebrities to do fake auditions for Shearer’s roles as some youtube gimmick?
