House of Cards actress, Robin Wright, has said U.S. President Donald Trump has stolen the idea of the movie, but she meant it as a joke.
The 51-year-old actress cracked the joke while attending her ‘Women In Motion: Robin Wright’ panel held during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals on Thursday (May 18) in Cannes, France.
At the panel Wright joked that her House of Cards writers are going to have trouble outdoing President Donald Trump‘s drama unfolding at the White House this week.
“Trump has stolen all of our ideas for season six,” Robin enthused.
“I don’t know what we’re going to do. I’ve got to see the hope somewhere. Oh my God, we have four years of this.”
“I want Michelle Obama up there,” Robin added. “She would be a great female president.”
