Julia Louis-Dreyfus says she's "exhausted" by real life comparisons to "Veep" and can't wait for the "madness" of the Trump administration to end.

The actress who played fictional vice president and president Selina Meyer on the HBO comedy series, was asked about incidents that are "just too close to 'Veep' " during a Tuesday interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"I'm glad it's going to be over soon," said Louis-Dreyfus, who supported President-elect Joe BidenJoe BidenRev.

"I'm so exhausted by it. You know it's one thing when it's a comedy on HBO and we can laugh, but when lives are at stake as they are today, and when democracy is on the line, which is something I feel was very much the case in this last election, I want to right this ship," the 59-year-old comedian said. 

"Morning Joe" co-host Willie Geist pointed to last month's Trump campaign press conference at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping in Pennsylvania, rather than the similarly named luxury hotel, and a "melting hair dye" incident involving lead Trump attorney Rudy GiulianiRudy GiulianiLawyers group calls for Giuliani's suspension from law practice, ethics probe Would Trump have gotten away with a self-pardon?

"The vote is too close to count in Nevada, and so there's this whole effort to count every ballot, and then all of the sudden when all of these military ballots come in and they're not for Selina, she tries to stop the count," Louis-Dreyfus said of the 2016 episode. "Veep" ended its run on HBO last year.

"It reeks of this time, unfortunately," she added.

Louis-Dreyfus said she'll be participating in a reunion with the "Veep" cast and live table read of the recount episode as part of an America Votes fundraiser ahead of the Georgia Senate runoff elections next month. Donors will have access to a Sunday livestream of the event.

"As an American concerned citizen, I'm eager to end this madness," Louis-Dreyfus said of her advocacy work. "And then making shows like 'Veep,' which seem ridiculous, all of the sudden might seem funny again."
