Hillary Clinton compares herself to Cersei Lannister

Oh, dear.

 

Today, Hillary Clinton releases a new book, What Happened, which aims to break down how the longtime politician lost the presidential election last year to Donald Trump. In an excerpt shared by a Breitbart writer on Twitter, Clinton unfortunately compares herself to Game of Thrones’ Cersei Lannister when it came to the way she was treated by Trump supporters. She particularly cites the scene wherein Cersei, accused of adultery and incest, is forced to walk naked through King’s Landing.

 

She 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.”

 

Despite Cersei undoubtedly being a sympathetic figure in that moment, she’s more or less served as a ruthless villain throughout much of the series’ run.

Well she just earn a little bit of respect from me for saying it like it is. There could not have been a more perfect analogy.

Yeah a Cersei analogy really wasn't well thought out at all. Especially considering the situation that led to Cersei's walk of atonement was a situation that Cersei herself created because she couldn't beat the Tyrell's straight up. It's clear Hillary was only thinking about that from the context of one woman vs. a rabidly angry and vicious mob, but there's really no way to do that without also analogizing yourself with a terribly unsympathetic character who deserved everything she got and then some. :skull: She had to know the right wingers, Bernie bros and whoever else would have a field day with it.

That seemed to be a constant problem all throughout Hillary's political career...

 

At least Hillary is "self aware".  :fan:

Who edited this book? :rip: 

 

I wouldn't have known who this GoT character is because I've yet to watch it. I think she was just going for the idea that she was treated as if she were as bad as that character? I'm not sure. The line should have been removed regardless.

I wish the analogy were more true since in the end Cersei still won the throne. :(
