As some of you will remember, Hillary Clinton has been pulling this “OMG I love ‘Game of Thrones’ because I’m so hip and relevant and cool” nonsense for a while now.
She had previously compared herself to Cersei Lannister…
And as those of you who watch Game of Thrones know, Cersei is as villainous as they come.
She lies, cheats, and manipulates to get what she wants. She looked past her late husband’s infidelities if it meant keeping her title as Queen. She murdered hundreds… possibly thousands to stay in power.
So of course, Hillary says she identifies with her.
It comes as little surprise Clinton identifies with the mad queen. In What Happened, her new book about losing the presidential election to Donald Trump, Clinton writes:
“Crowds at Trump rallies called for my imprisonment more times than I can count. They shouted, ‘Guilty! Guilty!’ like the religious zealots in Game of Thrones chanting ‘Shame! Shame!’ while Cersei Lannister walked back to the Red Keep.”
Assuming this reference is genuine—and not something ham-fistedly inserted into the book by a culturally-woke ghostwriter—it’s actually a bit revealing. It’s true that Cersei is a tragic, occasionally sympathetic figure. But she’s also one of the villains of the story: a manifestly incompetent ruler whose greatest talent is hurting every person who crosses her. She doesn’t represent any ideology or philosophy beyond naked self-promotion. More than any other claimant for the Iron Throne of Westeros, she wants to rule because she believes it is her turn.
That Clinton would actively invite readers to make this comparison is, um, probably a partial answer to the question asked by the book’s title. What happened? Nobody wants to vote for a Cersei.
ARE YOU THIS DENSE, HILLARY? You’d really set yourself up like this? REALLY?!

This was all back in September of 2017. The dolt clearly hasn’t learned her lesson, because believe it or not, she’s BACK AT IT.
According to Daily Caller:
Hillary Clinton gave HBO an unexpected plug last week when she claimed that the show that best reflected D.C. politics was the hit show “Game of Thrones,” now airing its final season.
“‘Game of Thrones!’ ‘Game of Thrones!’” she exclaimed. “You know, somebody asked me the other day what was the television show that was most like — most like Washington, they said was it ‘Veep,’ was it ‘Madam Secretary’? And I said, ‘Game of Thrones.’”
Translation: Hillary is still willing to slaughter the innocent to get what she wants.
Conservative comedian Michael Loftus was on Fox and Friends to unwind and untangle:
“Well, when Hillary Clinton starts saying that her real life looks like ‘Game of Thrones,’ believe her. Believe her! She is capable of doing some dastardly deeds. Look what she did to Bernie in 2016, like she totally stabbed him in the back,” he explained.
Yup. At least she’s honest about being a vicious, power-hungry beast.
