If you’ve turned on the television or the interwebs for even 20 seconds, you’re probably bombarded with the antics of the current election cycle and if you’re anything like me, you’re just about ready to call it quits on Making America Great Again (at least for the next 7 months or so).

Ready for a cutthroat president?
Check out the likes of #FU2016 and House of Cards. Now in Season 4, Kevin Spacey masterfully calculates how to take names and run the Oval Office like a boss. Accompanied by the classiness of Robin Wright Penn as first lady who is her own political force to be reckoned with.
Think a woman is ready and capable to lead?
Tea Leoni BRINGS IT in Madam Secretary. I may or may not have binge watched the majority of this and LOVE the elements of her having a leading first man and balancing life, home, and kids.
Interested in campaign antics?

Check out Money for Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve. Because nothing’s quite as sobering as watching real life information about tragedy and the economy crashing to the ground.
How do you use Netflix to escape the political mayhem?
