Veep’s Timothy Simons: What Was Counted as a Gaffe in Politics Doesn’t Exist Anymore

‘And now my character is now running for president’


SIMONS: “They are having the worst go at this. It is amazing, though, that when we started this show, what counted as a gaffe doesn’t exist anymore. And now my character is now running for president. And things that you would have thought would have torpedoed. You would have never bought that he could get there. That he could get to run for president. Now you have to actually entertain the fact that he could win — It’s like, yeah, he’s charmless and he’s graceless and he’s narcissistic. And he doesn’t care about anybody but himself. And I don’t know if you’re seeing the Venn diagram overlap.”
