If the real world was like House of Cards or Scandal, then the highest politicians in office would have a lot of murderous skeletons in their closets. While chatting with Ellen DeGeneres earlier this week, Bill Clinton joked that he wishes he had known how easy it was to kill people off a la Frank Underwood or Cyrus Beene.
“The thing about Scandal and House of Cards that makes it fun to watch is that I can’t imagine that either a president [played by Kevin] Spacey, or the president’s chief of staff on Scandal could really get away with murder,” said Clinton. “I wish I’d known about that when I was in office.”
As the audience laughed, he continued, “You know, think of all of the opportunities I missed. So little time, so many people that have it coming.”
