Last week, Amy Klobuchar, announcing President-in-Chief, HuffPost and BuzzFeed published stories in which several anonymous former employees confirmed long-standing rumors that the Minnesota Senator was unusually "cruel" and "humiliating" its employees . Both media depicted what BuzzFeed described as a "workplace controlled by fear, anger and shame" and what HuffPost called "cruel explosions that make it difficult to work in your office".
None of the publications revealed much specific suspicions. HuffPost has announced that Klobuchar has commissioned its employees to carry out personal work, such as "appointing their own personal meetings, washing dishes at their home, or taking their own dry cleaning". The site also reported that former Senate minority leader Harry Reid personally "called" Klobuchar in 2015, how she treated her staff and asked her to change her ways.
One particularly dramatic rumor about Klobuchar is the story she once had to shave. Although no journalist has publicly confirmed this story (the shale is also absent), we confirmed that the alleged incident was an inspiration for 2017. Episode HBO Veep .
Monday Veep David Mandela, head of the exhibition, heard a stage clip pointing to a recent rumor:
Interview Mandel told me that the gag was based on what the writers heard about Klobuchar. Disclosure: My brother worked in the exhibition for the last two seasons.)
"It's a well-known rumor that millions of people have told us millions of times," Mandel said about the history of foot shaving.
When asked to comment, Klobuchar's spokesman said the rumor was completely wrong and added, "It's funny."
Mandel explained that when he first took over the program's exhibition organizer, he invited some writers to a trip to D.C. Mandela says that he had a meeting with Klobuchar at that time and that he was "fantastic" (Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays the show, was also seen for lunch with the Clobuchar Senate's dining room in 2015).
After this meeting, leg shaving tidbit appeared. "Every time I brought it to [with people in D.C.] someone will tell us that story as a rumor," Mandel said.
"I think it is: what, this is a rumor," Mandel added. "It was such a good rumor we used as a line."
Mandel says the program initially attempted to add Louis-Dreyfus Selina Meyer's bullet, whose legs shaved the staffer, but Mandel says the show's writers couldn't find a real scene. "We played with the circumstances that are happening, and it has no sense," Mandel said. "The team of writers couldn't think of the reality where you would do it."
Instead, this show was used as a dialogue line for senior advisor Amy Brookheimer (played by Anna Chlumsky) who described that she had to "cleanse" shaving Meyer's legs.
