In her new book “What Happened”, Hillary Clinton compared the vitriol she faced on the campaign route to Cersei Lannister’s walk of confession in the hit TV series Game of Thrones.

In a thoroughfare considering the role sexism played in her unsuccessful presidential bid, Clinton wrote, “Crowds at Trump rallies called for my seizure some-more times than we can count.”

“They shouted, ‘Guilty! Guilty!’ like the eremite zealots in Game of Thrones chanting, ‘Shame! Shame!’ while Cersei Lannister walked back to the Red Keep,” Clinton wrote.

“I can’t even suppose people wanting your blood. Cersei has finished wrong, but she doesn’t really merit this,” Headey said.

In her memoir, Clinton pronounced she was taken aback by the “flood of hatred” she faced in the run-up to election day, observant she was “one of the many dignified open servants in America” after her reign as Secretary of State.

She wrote, “Now people seemed to consider we was evil…Was this all since I’m a woman? No. But we trust it was proclivity for some of those chanters and some of that bile.”
