All of Frank Underwood’s most evil advice from ‘House of Cards’
Frank Underwood is evil Confucius.
Season two of Netflix’s original series House of Cards premiered on Friday, and throughout the weekend, social media fueled conversations about what exactly Frank Underwood wants and just how evil he is, as well as some more spoiler-y discussions.
The show hinges on the muscle of several D.C. power struggles, but Kevin Spacey’s stoic tyrant Underwood is the lungs, breathing out icy knives of political rhetoric that would make for a great series of motivational office posters (for sociopaths.) The show has made his direct addressing of the camera a plot device, one which aides his covert, shadowy maneuvering by keeping his friends and enemies (which are the same thing on House of Cards) out of earshot, letting only the audience in on his confessionals.
Here’s a nice collection of all Underwood’s most chilling motivational lines from season two, like, “Shake with your right hand, but hold a rock in your left” and “When you’re fresh meat, kill, and throw them something fresher.” He’s an evil, modern-day Confucius.
