Veep’s Commander-in-Chief Selina Meyer is a woman of many talents. She can cut to the quick with the best of them, bringing with her a viscious wit not seen in the West Wing since, well, hopefully ever. That said, parenting is ... not among her most formidable skills. In the video above, we examine Selina Meyer, the mother. As you’ll see in her interactions with First Daughter Catherine, she provides a tutorial on how to be, well, a terrible (if hilarious) mom.
