Having learned his lesson from The Red Wedding, and, to a much lesser extent, the death of Cooter in season two of Justified, Barack Obama took to Twitter to let the free world know of his anticipation of season two of Netflix’s House of Cards.
Tomorrow: @HouseOfCards. No spoilers, please.

Also, don’t spoil it for him.
I’m not quite sure I would have access to the most powerful man in the free world to spoil a TV show for him, but if I do have that kind of reach, I would like to take a few minutes speaking about the Ukraine and the double-edged sword of nationalized health care.
Mr. President – I’ll give you the same advice I give anyone else. Expect a moratorium on social media spoilers for 24-48 hours following the television event. After that, it’s caveat emptor. If you have time to be browsing Twitter and coming across spoilers, you have time to sit your ass down and watch the rest of the season.
It’s not our job to make sure you don’t get House of Cards spoiled for you. That’s your job. Also, running the country.
