The Politician | Official Trailer | Netflix

I’m running
for student body president. That is why I’m proud to introduce
my running mate today. Infinity Jackson. She already has
an 80 percent approval rating. And a fan account
on Instagram. So evidently there’s a 
videotape with some footage of you using an 
offensive gay slur. Do you have any idea
what I might be referring to? Do you have any idea 
what time it is? Shut up, ma’am I’m not going
to take your bullshit tonight. -What’d you say on the tape?
-She said “Butt-munch.” She called an obviously gay
reporter “butt-munch.” Damn it! This is all over now. You see, gentleman, 
I’m gonna be President of the United States. I’m merely stating a fact.
I’ll be president someday. I’m warning you.
Do not screw with my dream. Your ambition frightens me. This school deserves
better than you. If you want to beat them,
you need to embrace  your inner coldness
unapologetically. Go to hell, Payton. We hate Payton way 
more than you do. -Think I should kill him?
-What? Yes. Yes, I do. I don’t know yet
if I’m a good person. You don’t have to be
a good person, as long as you do good things. Tell me the stuff that’d
make a difference to you. What do you care about? I can’t believe it. That I’m a stone-cold bitch
with ice water in my veins? This young lady
would like to vote. She can’t
without a student ID. Otherwise, they’d bus in
kids from other schools to vote illegally. That’s insane. Payton is possibly
a homosexual. Astrid is a raging bigot. I don’t understand why calling that gay man
a “butt-munch” was such a scandal. That’s what gays do. Munch butts
and celebrate Halloween. We should 
have him assassinated. Too dark? I will win at all costs. I have a crime to report. Did you do it, Payton? It’s so hard to have to try
so hard all the time. You’re gonna change 
the world, Payton. How do you know?

    Roland Szlotta August 20, 2019

    Write awsome and bitchy dialogues for Jessica Lange and i'm sure she's will steal the show! Honestly she's a better choice then Barbra Streisand and this show will be great. Very well presented the dirty and filthy world of the politics like House of Cards. I cant wait for it.
