LOS ANGELES (AP) — President Barack Obama's latest playful executive order is a tweeted effort to limit "House of Cards" plot spoilers.
The second season of the political thriller about a power-hungry Washington couple premiered in its entirety Friday on Netflix. Obama's official Twitter account notes the occasion along with the request: "No spoilers, please."
Cast members reveled in the real-life president's support at a premiere event Thursday night. Robin Wright plays Claire Underwood, wife of Kevin Spacey's vice president-to-be Frank Underwood. She says Obama "knows good stuff."
And Kate Mara, who plays reporter Zoe Barnes, double-checked the authenticity of the tweet before celebrating. She calls Obama's message "one of the coolest things that's happened to me."
Mara says the 13-episode season is "just as dark as the first."
