Watch Veep's Season 2 Trailer (VIDEO)

The position of vice president is technically the second-most-powerful job in the world, but as long as the president is still alive and well, the veep may as well be a prop in the president's photo opportunities. That's the recurring theme of HBO's Veep, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Vice President Selina Meyer.

Though its first season was relatively quiet, Veep was one of the best comedies to debut last year, and Season 2 is scheduled to premiere April 14. To celebrate, HBO has released the promo below to show just how much respect the VP gets in the White House.

Ha, you gotta love Timothy Simons as Jonah, the brown-nosing White House liaison; Gary (Tony Hale) mad-dogging the Secret Service agent; and Mike (Matt Walsh) stuffing his face with pastries.
