According to Mediaite, on Christmas Eve, Tucker Carlson unveiled a surprising interview with Kevin Spacey, who floated the idea of running for president in 2024. The interview, presented on X, marked Spacey’s peculiar Christmas tradition of resurrecting his House of Cards character, Frank Underwood, amid a backdrop of past sexual harassment allegations that led to his dismissal from the show in 2017.
Carlson kicked off the interview by proposing the notion of Spacey entering the 2024 presidential race, questioning whether there was room for a latecomer to disrupt the political landscape. The camera then revealed Spacey, responding in character as Underwood, expressing a willingness to make sacrifices for the nation if it meant restoring maturity to political discourse.
Throughout the conversation, Spacey delved into his political views, taking an unexpected detour to criticize furries and lamenting the nation’s contradictions and confusion. He emphasized his aversion to seeing someone adorned in bunny ears and a tail in the White House, except on Easter.
The interview took an even more bizarre turn when Carlson suggested that Netflix, Spacey’s former employer, attempted to have him killed. Spacey responded by asserting that Netflix severed ties with him based solely on unproven allegations, despite his pivotal role in the platform’s success. He claimed the allegations had been proven false, pointing to his acquittal in a UK trial over sexual assault claims.
This revelation sparked wild conspiracy theories on X, with users speculating about Spacey’s alleged involvement in dark activities with elite figures. Some even suggested that efforts to eliminate him were only partially successful, leading to the creation of “Spacey 2.0” as he ponders running for President against Trump and Biden.
Well, this country is mired in so much contradiction and confusion. We don’t even know how we can help anyone anymore because we can’t agree who needs help. I mean, what doesn’t come with a trigger warning these days? I mean, Tucker, we are far too close to having a beanbag chair in the Oval Office. We coddled everybody. Okay? You think you’re a rabbit? That’s fine. But let me tell you something. You sure as hell aren’t going to see someone walking through my White House in bunny ears and a tail unless it’s Easter.
The interview and its ensuing discussions on social media showcased the ongoing controversy surrounding Kevin Spacey, blending elements of political intrigue, conspiracy theories, and the actor’s enigmatic public persona. As Spacey continues to navigate the aftermath of past allegations, the interview added a new layer of intrigue and speculation to his already complex narrative.
“They actually tried to kill you,” Carlson said.
“It is bizarre that they decided to publicly cut ties with me on allegations alone, allegations that have now been proven false,” Spacey said. “Because I don’t think there’s any question Netflix exists because of me. I put them on the map and they tried to put me in the ground.”
