"The president is tweeting?"
This is from HBO's Veep, in which two members of the White House staff are running to stop president Selina Meyer from Tweeting. From the fifth season, this episode originally aired on May 8, 2016... what a foretelling of the times.
The show's hilarious satire of politics has become much too realistic (an aspect lead actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus has personally commented on as well) as I re-watched it over the last few days. It's extremely interesting to watch in the current political atmosphere. I am highly interested in Veep's next season, which is being filmed now.
For those interested, this is also streaming on Amazon Prime. I highly recommend it!
