President Barack Obama channeled Frank Underwood on Wednesday as an April Fool’s Day surprise.
Tucked deep inside the White House’s latest “West Wing Week” video, eagle-eyed users will notice a special message from the president.
With a knowing look straight into the camera, Obama says in fake Southern accent, “Hello everybody, this is not Frank Underwood, this is Barack Obama. Happy April Fools’ Day.”
The president added, “Frank learned it from me.”
Unfortunately for Obama he can’t deliver a drawl as convincingly as Oscar winner Kevin Spacey, who plays the conniving President Frank Underwood in the hit Netflix series “House of Cards.”
Don’t quit your day job, Mr. President.
