Even politicians need an escape from politics, and for Senator Elizabeth Warren, HBO's "Ballers" is apparently ideal.
While sitting down with Samantha Bee on the late-night show "Full Frontal," the Massachusetts senator shared that she is a big fan of the Dwayne Johnson comedy series. Lucky for her, that meant getting a hilarious gift from Bee: a giant cutout of the "Ballers" lead, plus a visit from Rob Corddry, "the second most jacked" star of the show.
In the video, Warren explains to Bee just why she likes the show, and the reasons she gives are deeper than you might expect.
"It's actually a story about hard work," Warren says. "It's a story about perseverance. It's a story about having to reach within yourself and find something that you're not 100 percent sure is there."
Being such a fan, she is understandably thrilled to receive her unusual gift and it makes for an entertaining exchange. Watch below; Bee presents the cutout around 4:35.
"Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on TBS.
