Showtime’s Homeland has made no mistake about using the Trump Administration as a heavy influence in how Season 6 has unfolded.
In an episode titled Clarity, Homeland invokes the 25th Amendment, the constitutional provision which allows for the removal of the president from office for reasons of death, resignation, or incapacitation.
It’s not lost on some critics that in the age of Time’s Up, Homeland has chosen to saddle the country’s first female president with the 25th Amendment.
Hollywood using the 25th amendment to oust presidents with similar career arcs to Trump is not exactly a new thing.
As Kornick writes: “This isn’t even the first show this year to depict the use of the 25thAmendment to oust a democratically-elected president, it wasn’t even the first show of the day to have fantasies of removing Trump from office.
