Is This Quote From “House of Cards” or From a Real Presidential Candidate?


Which presidential candidate said, “The last time I actually drove a car myself was in 1996.” Was it Hillary Clinton? Or was it Frank Underwood, the fictional president from the Netflix hit “House of Cards”?

But “House of Cards” is full of political intrigue, scandal and great quotes. Our current field of candidates are full of the same. In the tradition of truth being stranger than fiction, it’s sometimes hard to top this current election cycle, though “House of Cards” and the Underwoods will always try. If you think you can tell the difference between the real life candidates and House of Cards characters, take our “House of Cards vs. 2016 Presidential Candidates” quiz below.
