‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Gets Political by Taking Light Jab at Donald Trump

Even after brain surgery, Amelia Shepherd had time today

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if  you haven’t watched Thursday’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy”)

Thursday night’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” got slightly political when one of the characters poked a little fun at the Office of the President.

In the particular scene, Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) is barely recovering from having had invasive brain surgery to remove a tumor from her frontal lobe. She’s being checked out by her neurosurgeon, Tom, who is asking her a series of questions while doing a few physical exercises to ensure that she’s not suffering from any complications.

He starts off by asking Amelia if she knows where she is to which she correctly answers “work,” all while completing balance exercises. Her doctor then follows up by asking if she knows who the president is to which she responds: “I wish I didn’t.”

The correct textbook answer would have been Donald Trump of course, but Shepherd’s answer worked just as well because right after, her doctor cleared her to go home.

If you blinked, you may have missed the encounter as the whole moment lasted for about a few seconds and no one brought it up again. No other characters entertained her little quip, it’s as if it never happened. But it did.
