Veep creator won’t return for the final season, says he’s done with political satire in wake of Trump
“I’m kind of relieved, I really am,” Armando Iannucci says of not having to do political satire while Donald Trump is president. “What can you do and say that hasn’t already been said and done by him? Personally, I just find it difficult to be funny about him,” he adds. “I can only be frustrated and flabbergasted by him. Outraged.” As for not returning to Veep, which he still executive produces, Iannucci says, “I’m happy that I left it in a good place and I don’t want to tamper with it.”
