Hillary Clinton compared herself to fictional dictator Cersei Lannister in her new book, “What Happened.”
Clinton discussed how she saw herself as the “Game of Thrones” character during rallies of candidate Donald Trump at the time.
From the New York Daily News:
In a passage contemplating the role sexism played in her failed presidential bid, Clinton wrote, “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,” Clinton wrote.

Pretty bold move to compare yourself to the murderous tyrant overseeing all of Westeros. I’m not a genius, but I feel like this isn’t the greatest way for Clinton to describe the situation.
For those who don’t know, Cersei Lannister is an awful person. She has killed scores of people, is a big fan of incest and only cares about whatever is necessary for herself. Who could ever forget the time she massacred the entire sept?
This comparison is just proof how tone-deaf Clinton really is. Lots of people already hate her and think she’s the worst thing to ever happen to America. Comparing yourself to a woman who loves killing people isn’t the best way to change the minds of the masses.
Of course, at least Cersei had some success and actually rules the kingdom. Clinton is now relegated to firing off every excuse she can find for why she’s not the President.
