Netflix aired a House of Cards commercial staged as a campaign ad during the GOP debates last night. The advertisement is rather convincing and fooled a good number of debate viewers. The commercial shows generic scenes of America and recites the usual promises of a better country, ending with the main character, Frank Underwood at his desk in the White House saying, "America, I'm only getting started. I'm Frank Underwood, and I approve this message." People took to twitter to talk about it using the hashtag #FU2016. Hilarity ensued.

According to fact checkers, all of the candidates lied at least a little bit at some point in the debates.

America's always been a haven for the oppressed. We cannot shirk the historic role of the US as a protector of vulnerable people. #GOPDebate
