Carlson Stuns Many w/ 'Frank Underwood' Interview Featuring Kevin Spacey

•, by Luis Cornelio

Tucker Carlson, a podcast host and owner of his own media company, released Saturday an unexpected interview with embattled actor Kevin Spacey. The actor has been embroiled in accusations of sexual misconduct, although he was acquitted. 

The Twitter interview, headlined "A Christmas Eve Election Surprise," diverged from the previous Carlson interviews as Spacey appeared in the persona of Frank Underwood, the fictional character from the political thriller show House of Cards.

Carlson initiated the interview by discussing the 2024 presidential election

"Is there anyone, in this country of 350 million people, who can jump in at this late date and re-scramble the calculus of electoral politics?" Carlson questioned. "Well, there may be someone. In fact, you already know him. You know his face. And the question is will he get in this cycle and that's my question for you."

The camera then turned to Spacey. As he began speaking, it became evident that Spacey was portraying Underwood, showcasing the sober South Carolina accent that gained popularity in the since-cancelled Netflix show.

"Well, that's really a decision for the people, Tucker. It's not somebody that I think about or what to do," Spacey said before turning to the camera House of Cards-style and adding, "And Merry Christmas to you, too."
