When Life Imitates Art: Donald Trump vs. Montgomery Burns

Just when you think The Simpsons is finally going to run out of material, along comes Donald Trump with a tolerably accurate real life imitation of Montgomery Burns. The Washington Post helpfully assembled this “Who Said It?” quiz of statements that could plausibly have come from either person, such as:

“By building a casino, I can tighten my stranglehold on this dismal town!”


“In life you have to rely on the past, and that’s called history.”

I guessed eight out of ten correctly. But then I’ve watched way too many episodes of The Simpsons.
