Netflix gave “House of Cards” fans the Season 5 premiere date and first teaser on President-elect Donald Trump’s Inauguration Day.
The date also came with a creepy teaser (below) featuring kids saying the Pledge of Allegiance while an upside down American flag flaps in the wind.
The gloomy imagery is appropriate, considering Season 4 ended with President Underwood (Spacey) deciding to go to war in order to win back the public’s favor as he heads into election season against a popular Republican candidate (Joel Kinnaman).
“We make the terror,” the show’s Twitter handle tweeted with the 28-second video.
The announcement came hours before Trump is set to be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, which a large portion of the country is openly dreading. “Mourning in America” and “Donald the Unready” were among the top trending terms on Twitter Friday morning.
Cross your fingers the real incoming president doesn’t look to the fictional “House of Cards” president for ideas.
