Former President Clinton said Tuesday he wishes that his staff had “Scandal” or “House of Cards”-like abilities to make political opponents disappear.
Appearing on “Ellen,” the ex-commander in chief revealed he’s a fan of political thrillers on TV, saying he has a "very close friend" in “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey.
“I wish I’d known about that when I was in office,” the 42nd president added, before wondering aloud, “You know, think of all the opportunities I’ve missed … so little time … so many people had it coming. Crazy.”
Clinton, 68, also disclosed that he can’t get enough of the long list of shows from mega-producer Shonda Rhimes. “I like this ‘How to Get Away with Murder.' I like ‘Scandal,’ ” Clinton said. “I love anything Shonda Rhimes does. I still watch ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’ ”
When host Ellen DeGeneres noted she was surprised Clinton had time to watch so much TV, he replied, “I had a wife with a traveling job for awhile, so I was home alone a lot.”
