Mellie Is a Lonely Single Female POTUS
Olivia (Kerry Washington) tells Mellie (Bellamy Young) even as a woman she is no different than any other President. Mellie counters that argument saying she is single female POTUS. Men have trouble with powerful women and as leader of the free world Mellie says her lady bits are going through a famine. Olivia and Mellie have a laugh but Olivia confides that she really knows how lonely it can be in this position but it's the job and Mellie has to do the job. Mellie may not be able to get laid but she can do something about nuclear proliferation in this moment from 'Scandal' Season 7, Episode 2, 'Pressing the Flesh.'
