by Kate Stanhope
Move over, Olivia Pope. There’s a new fixer covert scandal manager in Washington, D.C.
In a new video for Funny or Die, Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson rocks Kerry Washington‘s signature white coat to parody her hit TV series, Scandal. In the promo for Scandalous, Hudson plays Lydia Cole, a scandal manager who just can’t seem to find any real scandals worth managing. Rather, all of her new clients’ problems are easily solved by the Affordable Care Act!
Even the male politician who knocked up his mistress boasts about amicably splitting with his wife and how his constituents fully approve. Where’s a real scandal when you need one?! If only the issues facing Olivia’s clients were so easily resolved, then she might have time to handle her own personal problems.
Check out the hilarious spoof below:
