Netflix knows a thing or two about timing. Today, Inauguration Day, a day where the United States stands divided, the streaming giant released a new teaser for the upcoming fifth season of the political drama House of Cards.

It’s hard to top the teasers for the previous season of the of the hit show starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. The fourth season trailers left a bitter taste in your mouth while letting you revel in the artistic devilry that the show is know for. This trailer, though. It does more than leave a  bitter taste in your mouth on this Inauguration Day. It leaves a chill down your spine with it’s accuracy of our current climate. (Can we still say ‘climate’?)


One nation. Underwood. House of Cards returns May 30 on Netflix.
