Fans Wants Kevin James to Replace Kevin Spacey on ‘House of Cards’ Because ‘America’

America is trying to be stupid again. Don’t do this, America.

For those that don’t know, Kevin Spacey was fired from House of Cards because he came out as gay. Oh yeah, he also sexually assaulted a 14-year-old back in the day, but most ignored that aspect and focused on Spacey coming out as gay. Instead of canceling the entire show, which centers around Spacey as president, they’re just going to write him off and hope no one notices.

But the end of Spacey’s character means a new president must rise. And the people want that president to be…Kevin James.

Don’t. Do. This. America.

Someone started an online petition to have Paul Blart himself be president in Netflix’s fictional political drama. The petition already has over 30,000 signatures. It may not win the popular vote, but could still end up winning thanks to the electoral college.

Here’s what petition starter Robbie Pyma wrote:

I think Kevin James can elevate “House of Cards” to a globally adored franchise like “Game of Thrones” and make the entire world focus on one of the most important Netflix Original series there is.

Alright, I’m assuming that Pyma wants to have a little fun. I’m not against fun. But did we learn nothing from the last few years? What starts out as a little bit of fun turns into the biggest disaster that America has ever seen. Unless Hastings plot is to destroy House of Cards (in which case, he’s a genius), he should not be allowed to create something like this. Not even as a joke.

The good news is that there’s zero chance the people behind House of Cards will make this move, unless they’re forced by Netflix. After all, Netflix does have some sort of deal with Adam Sandler and we all know Sandler and James are best friends and….s**t. This is actually going to happen, isn’t it?

Kevin James is going to be the fictional President of the United States.
