Elsewhere, Tracy is decked out in an all black ensemble, complete with intellectual specs and a beret, as he welcomes the members of the HFPA to his luncheon screening of Hard To Watch. He assures them that they are working on the problem of the sushi platter (Kenneth) moving. Jenna opens the floor for questions, then dominates the Q&A with her own questions before cutting Tracy off to start the movie. It begins with heavy-handed orchestration over shots of Tracy walking through a rough New York neighborhood, carrying a football with a hole in it. He VOs that he used to be a high school running back with dreams. "Now the only thing I use a football for is a toilet."
Meanwhile, Jack watches as Steve Austin films his biographical film against a green screen. He espouses the virtues of the days when the Constitution was written, including no paved roads, rum as an anesthetic, and legalized slavery. Jack cuts him off, trying to make the most of what is becoming a clearly untenable situation. Steve takes the opportunity to show Jack his hand gestures, including "You listen to me," "Forceful conclusion," "There's work to be done," and "Hand me that shovel so I can dig a grave for her." Jack demands the cameras stop filming as his anxiety rises. Jonathan appears with a shot of Rep. Bookman at a youth vote rally. Jack takes this as a sign of desperation. "My generation never votes," Jonathan says gleefully, "it interferes with talking about ourselves all the time." Jack gloats that he's close to victory. All he must do is make Steve seem presentable. In the background Steve pulls out a pacifier and suggests they do a few takes with "'Binky."
