The Ex-President's Gay Son Is Kinda Slutty
T.J. Hammond is just your average, jaded, horny young guy living in Washington D.C., except for one thing—he's the son of ex-U.S. president Bud Hammond.
If you've never heard of President Hammond, don't worry; you're not a civics failure. He's the fictional ex-president in the USA Network's upcoming six-part soap opera, Political Animals.
Sigourney Weaver plays Hammond's wife Elaine, a Hilary Clinton type who serves as the Secretary of State while longing to becomine president. Elaine has a good, boring son Douglas and a promiscuous, drug-using son Thomas (or T.J., because bad boys love initials).
If T.J. is anything in the series like he is in the clip below, we can expect a six-episode sex spree of cynicism and secrecy, which is fine by us.
But will T.J.'s wanton sluttiness and love of nose candy destroy his mom's presidential chances? Will uptight conservatives use him as a symbol of moral decline?
Maybe not, if he never show pictures of his face on hook-up sites.
The show premieres on Sunday, July 15 at 10 p.m. ET, for those of you into soap operatic softcore. You can read NPR's excellent preview of the show here.
