LOS ANGELES — President Obama’s latest playful executive order is a tweeted effort to limit “House of Cards” plot spoilers.<

Cast members reveled in the real-life president’s support at a premiere event Thursday night. Robin Wright plays Claire Underwood, wife of Kevin Spacey’s vice president-to-be Frank Underwood. She says Obama “knows good stuff.”

And Kate Mara, who plays reporter Zoe Barnes, double-checked the authenticity of the tweet before celebrating. She calls Obama’s message “one of the coolest things that’s happened to me.”

Mara says the 13-episode season is “just as dark as the first.”

He really is. He's the vapid poseur-in-chief dancing with Beyonce and hobnobbing with NBA players while ValJar, Holder, et al., do the damage.

LOS ANGELES (AP) –  The political thriller "House of Cards" launched its second season with support from fans in real-life Washington power circles.

The online series about a scheming, sometimes murderous couple, played by Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, premiered in its entirety Friday on Netflix.

President Barack Obama's official Twitter account notes the occasion along with the request: "No spoilers, please." The tweet was not signed to indicate it came directly from the president, however, and the account is run by his group Organizing For Action.

Wright won a Golden Globe Awards for her portrayal of Claire Underwood, wife of Spacey's vice president-to-be Frank Underwood. She says Obama "knows good stuff."

And Kate Mara, who plays reporter Zoe Barnes, double-checked the authenticity of the tweet before celebrating. She calls the Obama message "one of the coolest things that's happened to me."

Mara says the 13-episode season is "just as dark as the first."

In a meeting with technology company CEOs in December, Obama playfully asked Netflix CEO Reed Hastings if he'd brought advance copies of the show.

"I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient. That's true," Obama joked. "I was looking at Kevin Spacey. I was thinking, 'This guy is getting a lot of stuff done.'"
