* TakeThat: Towards numerous issues.
** At one point, a mass shooting happens, and the staff mentions using a "thoughts and prayers" tweet template for those occasions, referencing the controversy over political figures tweeting that they'll keep the incident in their thoughts and prayers yet a number of them support gun ownership, raising the question of whether or not they'll take action to keep similar events from happening again.

''Veep'' is an {{Creator/HBO}} comedy/satire about the various dysfunctional people in the office of ineffectual Vice President of the United States Selina Meyer, played by [[Creator/JuliaLouisDreyfus Julia Louis-Dreyfus]] (of ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' and ''Series/TheNewAdventuresOfOldChristine'' fame). Developed by Creator/ArmandoIannucci, it is a long-awaited (five years!) [[TransAtlanticEquivalent American adaptation]] of ''Series/TheThickOfIt'' and a SpiritualSuccessor to the American side of ''Film/InTheLoop''. It keeps most of the biting satire of the originals, and although the swearing level is about the same, it would appear that American politicians and staffers prefer sarcasm to straight-up bollocking.

* StageWhisper: Given how mutually abusive ''everyone'' in Washington is, it's possible they're just ignoring her, but it's pretty conspicuous how nobody seems to react to Selina shit-talking them to her staff literally five feet away.
