Now those who have seen it or bothered to stay--This question was brought up by my wife. Before I begin this question or anything. I should explain--with my wife's permission. She was sexually assaulted so when we watched chapter 17/S02E04 she did find it a bit disturbing the way Clair used her assault as a way to divert from the whole abortion question.

Yes, it is fiction but with the whole Rape culture talk and just the way the abortion issue has been treated by Republicans lately. It just seem to make her uncomfortable on a little BUT hey there was a side of her that was glue to the TV and can't wait to see the undoing of the General.

Did anyone find it a little uncomfortable with it or is it just a work a fiction and get over it?

1. Claire is a sociopath

So yes what she and Frank do should make us all uncomfortable; they are willing to do anything, use anyone, murder anyone, and use things in their past to gain power. Keep watching, there are more horrible Machiavellian events to come.

Of course, I would never tell a victim of sexual assault that "it is just a work of fiction and get over it;" those are her honest, authentic emotions. I think it is a good question to ask: is it right to manipulate as the second lady does in the show, if it results in the arrest and court marshal of a predator? Does the means justify the ends, as is argued by the main character in All The Kings Men?
