PHOTOS: ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Was Shooting in DC During Trump’s National Emergency Declaration

As President Donald Trump was sending the country into a frenzy by declaring a national emergency to fund his wall at the southern border on Friday, the scene on the National Mall in Washington was coincidentally ominous.

The hit Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale chose this sunny Friday to film at the Lincoln Memorial. Dozens of women in red robes and white bonnets dotted the steps of the monument.

A bit haunting, no?

And people were kind of freaking out.

These two get it.

We all are.

The dark series takes place in a dystopian, theocratic future in the post-USA republic of Gilead, where rich men run the show and free women have few rights.
