    People Can't Get Enough Of Ben Platt Singing In "The Politician" And Honestly, Same

    ♪I wish I had a river...♪

    This weekend, Season 1 of The Politician dropped on Netflix.

    It stars Ben Platt, who — if you didn't know — is a VERY good singer.

    After watching Ben sing in the show, people are sharing their true feelings about it. And spoiler alert, there are a LOT of tears:
