Everyone's favourite fictional US President, Frank J. Underwood, of House of Cards fame, has been trading tweets with Jeb Bush who is currently seeking the Republican presidential nomination.

When Jeb tweeted his 235,000 followers announcing that he was attending a peach festival in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Frank asked Jeb if he had "a soft spot for South Carolina peaches."

He also asked the Florida Governor if he was "heading to Gaffney," the city that Frank hails from and where he began his political life as a senator.

Obviously tickled by the tweet, Jeb responded that he loved South Carolina peaches "more than sharks love blood."
