When President Barack Obama met Claire Underwood amazing things happened.
President Obama has made it no secret that he’s a fan of Netflix’s House of Cards, but he really stepped up his fanboy nature when he met Robin Wright at the Correspondents Dinner.
“I met President Obama and Michelle at the Correspondents Dinner… and before he even shook my hand—of course I was shaking like a leaf, I was so nervous—he leaned in and said, ‘I just want you to know, I’m not as bad as Francis.’ He needed me to know that,” Wright told press at a Netflix event on Monday.
Wright said Obama reiterated that fact three times. “He said, ‘I’m not as bad, but she on the other hand, is more like you,'” Wright said Obama was referring to Michelle Obama. “She and I kind of winked, she completely agreed.”
