The former secretary of State was asked during a New York event to pick which small screen depiction gets Washington right.
“May I ask you — this is a question I get a lot because I lived a life in politics, nothing like yours — which is closer to reality of life in politics, which TV show? ‘The West Wing’ or ‘Veep?’” moderator Paul Begala asked.
“Oh, probably ‘Game of Thrones,’” Clinton quipped as the audience laughed. “At least in my experience.”
“Crowds at Trump rallies called for my imprisonment more times than I can count,” she writes. “They shouted, ‘Guilty! Guilty!’ like the religious zealots in ‘Game of Thrones’ chanting ‘Shame! Shame!’ while Cersei Lannister walked back to the Red Keep.”
I love this response.
Especially since today is the premiere of the eighth and final season of GOT and it is quite literally almost the only thing I can think about.
I love that show so hard that it borders on obsessive.
Seeing it end will almost be as emotional for me is watching Hillary’s concession speech in 2016.
See how I tied all of that back together?
