Julia Louis-Dreyfus had a sharp response when asked if she thinks she will see a female president in her lifetime: “I f---ing better.”

Louis-Dreyfus, 58, made the comment at the premiere for the seventh and final season of HBO’s “Veep” on Tuesday, according to Variety.

The actress plays the fictional Selina Meyer, a failed presidential candidate who becomes the oft-ignored and humiliated vice president to the winning candidate, on the show.


Louis-Dreyfus’s performance as Meyer has earned her a record-setting six consecutive Emmy awards for outstanding lead actress in a comedy.

The actress has not yet made an endorsement for 2020, though this year's pool of Democrats has a historically high number of women running.
