Obama's April Fools' Day Joke: He Taught Frank Underwood

Apparently President Frank Underwood isn’t the only commander in chief to look directly into the camera and speak his mind. President Barack Obama joked that he taught the “House of Cards” character how to break the fourth wall, in a new video posted by the White House. “Hello, everybody. This is not Frank Underwood — this is Barack Obama. Happy April Fools’ Day,” Obama intoned with a faux accent in the video recorded on Wednesday, marking five years of the “West Wing Week” video series.
