Climbing to the top by Frank Underwood

For the ones who don't know, Frank Underwood was a character in House of Cards starred by Kevin Spacey. Quick synopsis: We first knew him as a Congressman and later on, he became the President. Along the way, he performed many political tricks, crossed numerous lines with a lot of people, and a cherry on top, he broke a lot of laws. His wife Claire (Robin Wright), was his wife and was alongside him and she played a crucial role in his path to the presidency. House of Cards lasted for 6 seasons(2013–2018). During the episodes, sometimes he would stop and talk to the camera like he was telling something to an audience. He would explain something or give a piece of advice. Mostly ruthless though.
