The award-winning Netflix show “House of Cards” seemed to jump into the controversy surrounding President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey on Tuesday.

Pictured is the nefarious President Frank Underwood, a character played by Kevin Spacey, offering up some words of wisdom, presumably to President Trump.

Previously, “House of Cards” trolled press secretary Sean Spicer for his upside-down flag pin during a press briefing. The upside-down flag is similar to the show’s logo.

“House of Cards” also released a promo for season four during a Republican debate.
