House Of Cards is awesome. It’s great entertainment, and apparently, not far from the truth at all.
Star of the show and all round legend Kevin Spacey is good friends with Bill Clinton, which doesn’t come as any great shock.
And in a recent interview with Gotham Magazine, Spacey did an impression of former president Clinton, as he recalled what he told him:
Kevin, 99 percent of what you do on that show is real.Advertisement
The 1 percent you get wrong is you would never get an education bill passed that fast.
Clinton isn’t the first president to comment on House Of Cards either, as a couple of years ago Barack Obama said that he wished things were as ‘ruthlessly efficient’ as in the show.
I’ve always wondered how close to reality the show was. And even though Bill Clinton’s word can be far from gospel, you’ve got to wonder.
Still, he was probably referring to the mistress situation in the first season.
