Things change so quickly in our current political landscape. Goalposts get moved, attention gets shifted, and politicians routinely double back on their previous, seemingly earnest statements. But in this topsy-turvy world of politics, there’s at least one consistent truth that we can all count on: Elizabeth Warren fucking loves Ballers.


Last year, we reported on Senator Warren’s unwavering passion for the HBO series after she made a Facebook post in support of the Writer’s Guild Of America and divulged the fact that her and her husband Bruce were eagerly awaiting the start of the show’s next season. The idea that anyone was giddily counting the days until Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Rob Corddry could once again do their work hard, play hard, financial manager thing was hilarious enough. But the fact that that person happened to be progressive icon Elizabeth Warren seemed to delight everyone to no end.

Her tweet this morning shows that, while she understands her Ballers fandom may seem like some big goof to those in the media, she takes it very seriously. The calendar is marked. The DVR is set. All potential obstruction of the current administration’s policies will be put on hold from 10 to 10:30 on Sunday night. That’s just the way it is and that’s the way it will be for at least one more season. After that, Elizabeth and Bruce may have to finally see what all the fuss about The Affair is.
