‘House of Cards’ Star Robin Wright Just Endorsed This Person for President
The actress also blamed Donald Trump for her show's most glaring problem
“House of Cards” used to be a brilliant show. It was a dark indictment of everything wrong with D.C. elitists.
The main characters, Francis and Claire Underwood, were two-faced, lying politicians who would say and do anything to keep their sliver of power.
Then something happened. Showrunner Beau Willimon became a Trump troll on Twitter. The show got as over-the-top as a dated soap opera, and the main characters changed — it went from being a story that took on all sides of the political spectrum to a partly partisan endeavor.
In other words: It lost its backbone.
Co-star Robin Wright thinks there's a different reason for the lack of ideas on "House of Cards." "Trump has stolen all of our ideas for season six," she said at Variety and Kering's Women in Motion talk at the Cannes Film Festival, according to The Hill. Season five of the show premieres May 30 on Netflix.
Wright also gave her endorsement to someone for the 2020 presidential election. "I want Michelle Obama up there," she said. "She would be a great female president."
