‘Veep’ finale goes extra mile to trump current news cycle

( CNN) The following contains spoilers about the “Veep” series finale.

The Emmy-winning HBO comedy aired its finale on Sunday, after a build-up in which former chairwoman and current presidential nominee Selina Meyer( Julia Louis-Dreyfus) accepted help from the Chinese government, which reached out to her through the most unwitting of third parties.

The final occurrence picked up at a deadlocked, brokered convention, where Selina demonstrated her complete lack of principle. That included using the #MeToo movement to torpedo a contender, and throwing everyone close to her — including her trusted aide-de-camp Gary( Tony Hale) and own daughter( Sarah Sutherland) — for the purposes of the bus in her bid to retake the White House.
