Kevin Spacey says Frank Underwood would find the US presidential campaign race 'as amusing as I do'
So much so that Page Six, part of The Post Network, has awarded him the title of "King of Davos" in an article that also includes a tale about him climbing on top of a piano at a glitzy bash to pledge his love for the event, before serenading the audience.
On Friday he was interviewed on stage by The Times newspaper editor James Harding, who asked what Spacey's character in "House of Cards," Frank Underwood - a conniving politician who cheats and manipulates his way up to the US presidency - would give to the current Republican presidential candidates.
Spacey started his response with a Freudian slip, which altered his answer somewhat to instead talk about his view on the 2016 presidential race.
"I think Donald Trump - sorry, I mean Frank Underwood - you see, he even stole my time just now without doing anything! I think Frank Underwood would look at this particular year and find it as amusing as I do."
Spacey continued, saying that while Americans are probably thinking "wow, there's some crazy s--- going down," the US and that the current discourse will probably "get it right in the end."
Referencing Trump, he said people who suggest his campaign tactics are brand new have got it wrong. Attacking the media and groups of people were the exact tactics of George Wallace's 1968 campaign, he explained.
