An Appreciation of Viola Davis’s Lethal Reaction to Melania Trump Being a Fan of HTGAWM

By

Jimmy Kimmel wasn’t supposed to ask Viola Davis about Melania Trump’s apparent love of How to Get Away With Murder (a show she most definitely isn’t watching for an escape from reality), but, boy, are we glad he did. Were it not for his off-script request for her thoughts on the awkward matter, we might never have been treated to this Emmy-worthy master class in how to get away with murdering a fan, one reaction shot at a time. She doesn’t say much (“me and her can have some vodka together,” so Viola can get the tea), because her face says it all.
