The most qualified presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren and rising star Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have finally weighed in on the finale to HBO’s Game of Thrones. The episode, along with the entire eighth season, has been under heavy fire by fans for its decisions, and Warren and AOC appear to be in agreement with the side of fandom that didn’t like the ending.
Warren took to Twitter to post a video of herself and AOC discussing the series finale, beginning with the following exchange:
Warren: So did you see Game of Thrones last night?
AOC: I did. I’m sad. Disappointed about it.
Warren: I was just really… meh.
AOC: I feel like we were getting so close to having this ending with women running the world…
Warren: Exactly. And then one goes crazy.
AOC: …and then the last two episodes it’s like, “oh, they’re too emotional. The end.”
Warren: Yeah, exactly. Can’t do that.
AOC: It’s like, ugh, this is written by men.
Warren went on to suggest that she would have preferred Sansa become ruler of the seven kingdoms rather than settling for becoming Queen of the North.
Warren: I was even willing, at the end, to make a quick allegiance shift when Dany went nuts.
Warren: So I was over to Sansa.
Warren: I was like, Team Sansa. I will redo my shirts and everything.
AOC: Yes. Totally. Totally.
Warren: And then Sansa, who already is Queen of the North, thank you very much…
Warren: She walks away saying, “And I’ll still be Queen of the North.”
AOC: I know.
Warren: Come on, Sansa. Go for the big one!
AOC: I was disappointed.
Warren: Me too.
AOC: We need to get some feminist analysis up in HBO.
Warren: They need some help on this.
AOC: They do. They do.
Cortez is already the star of a comic book which is already selling for $1,000. Perhaps HBO could pick up the comic for an adaptation? They are certainly in need of some new content after Game of Thrones ended. Meanwhile, sources tell us President Donald Trump has ordered the Pentagon to redirect military funding toward finding him some dragon eggs.
Check out the video from Warren and Ocasio-Cortez below, and let us know in the comments whether you agree with their assessment. And remember, if you were also disappointed in the Game of Thrones season finale, that means you have to vote for both of them.
