Kevin Spacey Reveals What Would Happen If Frank Underwood, Donald Trump Debated

Screen Shot 2016-01-22 at 3.44.52 PMActor Kevin Spacey was asked by CNBC Europe what he thinks of the current presidential race and he did not hold back, calling it “a laugh a minute.”

“It is an extremely entertaining program,” he quipped. “I look forward to it every night.”

Spacey knows a thing or two about the presidency and entertaining programs because he plays President Frank Underwood on the hit Netflix series, House of Cards. Underwood is renowned for his resourcefulness and determination to get to the top, no matter what the cost. By some standards, Underwood is cruel, selfish, and a perfect representation of the corruption within American politics.

When the host asked Spacey what topics Underwood and GOP frontrunner Donald Trump might debate in the glorious alternate universe where that would be a possibility, the Golden Globe-winning Best Actor responded, “He wouldn’t. There would be a terrible accident on the way to the debate … it would be terrible, and very sad.”

Maybe it is a good thing that alternate universe doesn’t really exist; I don’t think we could handle it.
