What better way to celebrate Presidents’ Day than to watch Selina Meyer plot her way back to the White House?
On Monday, HBO released the first trailer for the final season of the critically adored, Emmy-winning comedy Veep, and it previews the former president’s attempt to win the hearts and minds of Americans again. Selina (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is proud of her accomplishments — “I took a dump on the glass ceiling,” she defiantly declares to Gary (Tony Hale) — and she seems energized to reconnect with America. “This entire country is getting more disgusting by the second!” she notes. “That’s a demo we’re targeting mostly on Facebook,” assures Kent (Gary Cole).
Spoiler alert: Her second run at the highest office in the land won’t be easy. She’ll have to eat some gross things on the campaign trail, and she’ll face some tough competition in Jonah Ryan (Timothy Simons), who pledges to potential constituents, “You have the second-lowest vaccination rates in the nation, and when I’m elected president, you will be no. 1!”
Watch the video above to see Selina in saucy service one more time.
Veep returns Mar. 31 at 10:30 p.m.
