Hillary Clinton Compares Herself To Cersei Lannister From Game of Thrones

Hillary Clinton compared herself to Cersei Lannister of Game of Thrones. Yes, that happened!!

Hillary Clinton Cersei Lannister Comparison Made in Hillary’s New Book ‘What Happened’

Hillary Clinton compared herself to Game Of Thrones character Cersei Lannister in her new book. Clinton’s book What Happened was released on September 12.

According to a report by Newsweek, one passage sees Clinton write: “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’s reference alludes to Cersei’s Walk of Atonement in season five. The scene saw the character publicly and humiliatingly shamed, forced to walk naked through King’s Landing.

Has Hillary even seen Game of Thrones? Cersei is quite ruthless and Hillary compared herself to Cersei who plans to take advantage of the Night King killing all the Northerners to keep a grab on power in Westeros. Hillary may have just stepped on her own foot again. She probably gave Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders supporters a reason to mock her even more.


Not only this, Hillary Clinton has also blamed Bernie Sanders for her defeat to Trump.

Leaked excerpts from Clinton’s new book What Happened shows her appearing to blame Sanders for her US Presidential election loss against Donald Trump. Sanders’ “attacks” in the Democratic primaries “caused lasting damage,” according to Clinton and made it “harder to unify progressives in the general election… paving the way for Trump’s ‘Crooked Hillary’ campaign.”

Clinton also claimed that President Obama advised her to “grit my teeth and lay off Bernie as much as I could,” leading to her feeling like she was “in a straitjacket.”

Hillary Clinton Cersei Lannister

Well, Hillary Clinton Cersei Lannister comparison was quite unexpected. What do you think about it? Has Hillary seen Game of Thrones? To me, it’s very unlikely given her strange comparison.


Lena Headey Speaks Out Against Harvey Weinstein; A Close Look at Headey’s Activism and Life

Cersei Lannister has many fans but she is also hated for her ruthlessness. Actress Lena Headey who portrays Cersei is actually not like Cersei at all. She is pretty cool and speaks out her mind. She recently opened up and narrated her own horrible experience on being sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein. 

Lena Headey Speaks Out Against Sexual Harassment – Narrates Her Account With Harvey Weinstein

Lena Headey spoke about her experience of being sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein

She first spoke on the matter in a tweet when the allegations against Harvey Weinstein broke on the internet.

Then as the #MeToo campaign started gaining force on the internet, especially on Twitter and Facebook, Lena Headey had more to say.

She spoke about meeting Harvey Weinstein at The Venice Film Festival. Harvey Weinstein took Headey for a walk and suggested kissing her. Headey shrugged it off and said, “Never in a million years“. To her, the thought of kissing Weinstein was funny at the time. This is how a lot of women react in general when a man approaches them inappropriately. They try to laugh it off and dodge the situation. 

But Harvey Weinstein didn’t stop just there. He approached her again when she was in Los Angeles some another time.

Weinstein started invading into Headey’s personal life by asking her questions about her love life. At one point he suggested going to his room. He told Headey that he wanted to give a script to her. They took an elevator to Weinstein’s hotel room. Headey’s body went into a panic alert mode and Headey told Weinstein that she is not interested in anything more than work. She said NO.

But Harvey Weinstein still grabbed her back and her arm and forced her out of the elevator.

Headey says that she completely felt powerless in that situation. Harvey tried his room key and it didn’t work. He escorted Headey back to the hotel lobby and called a taxi for her. He warned Headey to never speak about it to anyone. Headey says that she felt so powerless and cried after sitting in the car. 

What Inspired Lena Headey To Speak Out Against Harvey Weinstein?

Headey’s account comes after more than 40 other women have accused Weinstein of sexual assault.  Following the revelations, Weinstein has been sacked by the board of his company and expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. On Monday, the actor Lauren Holly also came forward with claims against Weinstein, describing an encounter she had with the producer in a hotel in the 1990s in which he asked her for a massage while naked. “I wanted to flee. I was scared,” Holly told Canadian talk show The Social.

Weinstein has “unequivocally denied” all allegations of non-consensual sex so far. 

Well, Lena, you are amazing. Thanks for speaking out against Harvey Weinstein and sharing your experience with others on Twitter. Your story will empower others to speak out against sexual predators. 

Lena Headey is a person full of life. She values friends and family. Her pictures and her activism depict a person full of life.

Some More Cool Stuff About Lena Headey 

Cersei Lannister costumes

One of Headey’s female fans once approached her and showed the actress her “300” inspired wedding album, in which the bride dressed up as Headey’s character, Queen Gorgo, for her special day.

Headey says that she is terrified of appearing on talk shows. Well, this is something I don’t believe. She is pretty good whenever she has appeared in talk shows. I still remember when she agreed to drink wine from a goblet at Jimmy Kimmel Live. 

Kid can’t take proper care of themselves nor their pets. The notion was enforced when Headey revealed that as a child she had two hamsters and some goldfish. She decided to give her goldfish a big Jacuzzi for fun and ended up boiling up one, alive.

Doesn’t this make you fall in love with Headey? I am certainly a big fan of her acting. It’s easy to play nice onscreen but to be hated is another thing. After she spoke out against Harvey Weinstein, I have started respecting her even more.

 

Is Tyrion Jealous of Jon Snow?

Last Sunday’s Game of Thrones Season Finale was epic. There were so many important moments. One of them was Brandon Stark narrating the scene of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen’s marriage and the fact that Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen, not Ned Stark’s bastard. As that scene unfolded we saw Jon and Daenerys finally making out and Tyrion standing outside Daenerys’s cabin looking all upset. Why did he react that way? Is Tyrion Jealous? Or is he sad?

Tyrion Reacting to Jon and Daenerys Having Sex

Tyrion did not look happy when he saw Jon Snow walking into the cabin of Daenerys. He is an intelligent man and he knew that Jon has had a crush on Daenerys since Jon arrived at Dragonstone. But he did not anticipate Jon bending the knee to Daenerys and to make matters worse, Daenerys not telling her own hand about it. Tyrion comes to know about Jon’s pledge to serve Daenerys as his queen at Dragonpit for the first time straight from Jon Snow, not from the queen he serves. That perhaps made him feel left out and small.

Tyrion can see how Daenerys has started relying on Jon Snow. She even asked Jon for advice when she heard the news about Lannisters taking over Highgarden. At that time she was quite mad at Tyrion as his advice to stand down cost her Dorne, Iron Islands and Highgarden. Now with Jon pledging alliance as King in the North to Daenerys, and Daenerys and Jon hooking up, it complicates matters for Tyrion even further.

When Tyrion Finds Out That Cersei is Pregnant

Tyrion may have made some kind of a deal with Cersei to make her commit to a truce. May be he told Cersei that her unborn child can be named as Daenerys’s successor. We have seen Tyrion talking to Daenerys about choosing a successor to Daenerys in Beyond the Wall. Even though Tyrion thinks that Daenerys can’t have children and Jon Snow and Daenerys having sex won’t change that in his opinion. But he is worried that Daenerys won’t agree to Tyrion’s suggestion of naming Cersei’s child as her successor, especially if Jon Snow and Daenerys get married. That would make Jon Snow a successor after Daenerys. Remember, no one except Brandon Stark and Samwell Tarly know about the fact that Jon Snow is Aegon Targaryen, the true heir to the Iron Throne.

Does Tyrion Love Daenerys?

Tyrion may also have some feelings for Daenerys. He definitely respects her. According to Jeremy Pedeswa, Director of Game of Thrones Finale, in an interview, “Everyone seems to be in love with Dany, in a way, and I think Tyrion’s a little bit in love with her. But I don’t think it’s an actual romantic love. There’s a huge respect for her. And maybe there’s a slight romantic element to that. But it’s more of a jockeying in terms of who has real power. Not over Dany, but who has power in a relationship with Dany. With Tyrion, it’s all about who is going to have sway over her?



So is Tyrion jealous? Yes, there is some jealousy and some love. But, most likely, Tyrion is worried about losing influence over Daenerys as she gets more and more close to Jon.

Cersei Lannister Costumes: The Narrative Behind Them

Cersei Lannister costumes depict an amazing story of how she has evolved from being Robert Baratheon’s wife to being the queen of Seven Kingdoms.



The Story Cersei Lannister Costumes Narrate

Cersei Lannister in Red and Gold in Season 1 Episode 1

Cersei is seen in red and gold, house Lannister’s colors in season 1 episode 1 of Game of Thrones. After successfully killing Robert and ascending Joffrey to the crown, she has worn more regal looking gowns.

Cersei has worn her hair up in a classic Southern style in many episodes.

But after her walk of shame and Tommen’s death, Cersei has dressed up more like her father in black with her hair cut short. Her costume designer Michele Clapton decided to go with the black symbolizing her hunger for power, her ruthlessness and to echo similarity to Tywin Lannister, Cersei’s ruthless father. Of one particular dress for the season 6 finale, made of leather layered over silver brocade, Clapton told Vanity Fair, “I knew it had to be leather and I knew it had to be linked to Tywin.

Similarity Between Tywin and Cersei’s Costumes

Black was the obvious choice,” Michele Clapton told Vanity Fair. “Yes, it is for mourning her children, her father . . . but it’s more than that. To me, it represents a deadness inside her—the overwhelming desire for power at any cost. The multi-layered effect created by mounting the leather onto silver brocade gives a more complex feeling, implying that nothing achieved is ever simple.”

 



Cersei looks amazing in black and all the more powerful. Let’s see how long she stays in power with the army of the dead marching towards Westeros.

Anatomy of The Frozen Lake Battle- Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 featured ‘The Frozen Lake Battle’ where a group of twelve people go for a hunt of a dead wight far north beyond the wall.



The crew discusses the making of this amazing sequence.

The Frozen Lake Battle

Says D. B. Weiss, “It was a real back and forth about who would be on this mission, who wouldn’t be on this missionThe Dirty Dozen obviously came to mind. Everybody has a good reason to hate everybody else.” We see Jon Snow, Tormund Giantsbane, Jorah Mormont, Gendry, Thoros of Myr, Beric Dondarrion, The Hound and five other wildings go on this suicide mission to rescue a dead wight to show to Cersei that the threat is real.

The Frozen Lake Battle

Suicide Squad

Some of the sequence was shot in Iceland. The crew worked in cold conditions as hell. Most of the heavy-lifting of the sequence, was in Wolf Hill Quarry in Belfast. The crew had a very hard time trying to work out what a frozen lake looks like, and how they can achieve that. And that went from compacted quarry floor to putting concrete down, to nice, flat finish, and then there had to be hues of color that were added to that. Then they had to work out how the ice would look, trying to make that look three-dimensional, and as if it was transparent ice. They worked hard to make the frozen lake look real.

Says Kit Harrington, “I think there’s a sort of kick-bollocks scrambleness to filming out here where you, you have such limited daylight. And you have conditions which are like this or worse. It just gives it a sense of reality, you know.”

Remarks Emilia Clarke, “You know, the harder the challenge, the more I relish it. But this really, you’re like, “Can I just even maybe have, like, a screen with, like, clouds or something?” I’ve never flown on a dragon! And to just harness that power. I mean, can you even imagine?

In this sequence we got to see a wight polar bear, a dragon dying, hundreds and thousands of wights fighting with the Suicide Squad. I would say that the crew did an amazing job in filming this sequence.

Is Cersei Lannister Pregnant With Jaime’s Child: Eastwatch

The writers of Game of Thrones play this game with viewers. A lot happens in one episode and everything is not explicit. The bombshell that they dropped in today’s episode ‘Eastwatch‘ is that Cersei Lannister reveals to Jaime Lannister, by not so much in words but only gestures, that she is pregnant with Jaime Lannister’s child. But is Cersei Lannister pregnant? I have my doubts.



Is Cersei Lannister Pregnant Or Is She Faking It?

Cersei Lannister Places A Hand On Her Belly To Tell Jaime That She Is Pregnant

Jaime comes to meet with Cersei to tell her that he met with Tyrion Lannister. But Cersei has her own news to give to Jaime. She says, “Dead men, and dragons, and dragon queens, whatever stands in our way we will defeat it. For ourselves, for our house, and for this.” When she says for this, she points to her belly and Jaime is like WOAH!!!!

Jaime Lannister’s Reaction When Cersei Announces That She Is Pregnant

Jaime asks Cersei, “Who would you say is the father?“. Cersei replies, “You“. Jaime responds that people won’t like that. Cersei says, “What did father use to say about people?” Jaime replies, “The Lion does not concern himself with the opinions of the sheep“.

Cersei and Jaime Sharing Their Big Moment

But again, is Cersei Lannister Pregnant? She has reasons to lie about it.



Cersei Knows That Jaime Is Her Wild Card

In the episode earlier, Jaime breaks the news to Cersei that Olenna was the one to kill Joffrey. All these years Cersei theorized that Tyrion killed Joffrey. But she was wrong. Jaime makes her believe by the logic that Olenna is the one who would have benefitted from Joffrey’s death, not Tyrion. He asks her if she had a daughter whom she would like her to marry? Someone like Joffrey who was totally out of control or someone like Tommen who could be easily manipulated. It all starts making sense to Cersei then.

Jaime also confesses to Cersei that they cannot win against Daenerys’s Dothraki army and her dragons. Cersei feels that his grip on Jaime is getting loose. But she needs Jaime to see this war through. She is a manipulative shrew and she can go to whatever lengths necessary to keep her trump card, Jaime, close to her. By gesturing towards her belly she creates a moment for Jaime to believe that now whatever they do it’s not only for them but also for their baby who is allegedly on the way.

Cersei Tells Jaime That She Will Go Public About Jaime Being The Father

Cersei has calculated this in her head if she is lying about this. She can’t be serious about going public with this news. She knows what shame feels like from personal experience (her the walk of atonement in Season 5). She also knows that Targaryens used to get married among their siblings, so may be she will justify changing the rule for Lannisters by giving that as an example. But she also knows that announcing her pregnancy with Jaime being the father won’t be taken well by her army and by the people of Westeros. Especially, when she is contesting the throne against the mother of dragons. But then, Daenerys may also make out with Jon Snow which is also incest. So incest may just become the norm for Westerosis. I hope not!!




Here is another twist though. She warns Jaime in the end, “Never betray me again“. Jaime has What In The Seven Hells expression. Perhaps, in that moment, Jaime realizes what Cersei is doing to him.

So is Cersei Lannister pregnant or if she is going to the next level of shrewdness and dirty politics to keep Jaime in her pocket. I think of Olenna Tyrell’s last words to Jaime, “Cersei is a disease. She will be the end of you“.

To know what’s coming in the next episode of Game of Thrones Season 7 watch its preview. We will perhaps find out the truth.
