‘ IndieWire (EM). EM: “I only watched Homeland through season 4 (don’t get Showtime so would buy used DVDs of each season maybe a year after they came out), but while searching for something else on IMDB, happened across this gag-worthy bit of life-needs-to-be-more-like-a-Hollywood-show propaganda:
“Homeland’s” president has never been a Donald Trump stand-in. She’s her own character emblematic of much more than our Cheeto-in-Chief. But her action is the kind of thoughtful, idealistic, self-sacrificing move that he would never make, even if it’s easy to argue he needs to — would the world not be a better place if instead of focusing on when and how Trump’s lies will be exposed (and it’s quite clear he has lied), that he step aside and let the country’s mass healing begin? Would the effort alone, whether or not it works, be admirable? His few remaining proponents may argue otherwise, but it’s hard to dismiss the gesture seen in this fictional (yet studiously relevant) take on America.
And of course the baddies in season 7 – the ones who drive our heroic CIA gal to madness – are the deplorable Rooskies!” Lambert here: “Healing.” Another word to watch out for. Generally the people calling for healing are highly unlikely ever to have been injured.
