“Game of Thrones” is one of the biggest shows on television these days. And the upcoming U.S. election is also bringing in droves of onlookers watching to see the drama and excitement. So, how great would it be if we could force these two crazy storylines together? This list is the greatest mashup of U.S. politicians and “Game of Thrones” characters ever!
The white queen of beauty and power! Daenerys is also queen of dragons and she is perfect in every way. She helps people in need, but also knows when to be tough. She is the ultimate feminist and her powerful control shows that she is the most likely to lead people in the right direction.
Sonia Sotomayor is the perfect example of what a beautiful, intelligent, and powerful female politician should be. She uses her power as a United States Supreme Court Justice to do good, fighting against the injustices that sometimes come up in our country. Recently, she fought against police violence and police brutality.
Jon Snow knows more than just nothing. Not only is he a great warrior, but he fights for the people who need someone in their corner. He is proud of where he comes from and he wants to do right by the people who he cares about. He is the male equivalent of Daenerys.
Bernie Sanders, way back when, was like the United States’ version of Jon Snow. During the 1960s, Bernie Sanders fought in the civil rights movement and was actually arrested for his actions. This is some Jon Snow type of courage and we fell in love with him for it.
The little feminist that could! Arya Stark is a young child who won’t let her gender affect the way that people see her. She fights against the people who hurt and kill the people she loves. And she seeks revenge against them. Arya is truly an inspiration.
Jill Stein is the ultimate feminist and this year’s Green Party candidate for president. She is for the legalization of marijuana and is strongly in favor of women’s rights, including birth control and abortion. Even though the United States government is a boys’ game when it comes to politics, Jill Stein is taking over.
This mother is one of the greatest characters on the show. She fights against authority to defend her husband and she even dies for her son. She is unwilling to accept her defeat and no matter what, she keeps on fighting to do what is best. Her motherly instinct protects almost everyone on the show.
Michelle Obama is more than a first lady, she is a political inspiration. FLOTUS is not one to easily back down from doing the right thing. She fights against childhood obesity and tries to make people understand that eating healthy can be easy. She also speaks out against racism and sexism.
She used to be whiny, but now this redheaded lady is truly an inspiration! Sansa became one of the feminist icons on the series, and shows that women can really be the ones in charge. Not only does she grow into a great leader, but she also is incredibly intelligent as a warrior.
Tulsi Gabbard is one of the few women in Congress who endorsed Bernie Sanders. She is the Republican representative from Hawaii who endorsed Sanders after becoming frustrated with how the government was being run. Gabbard even quit the DNC because she wanted to endorse Sanders after believing that he was the right candidate.
This lady isn’t necessarily evil, she’s simply just power-hungry. Cersei Lannister, now queen, shows that with dedication you can take whatever you want if you fight hard enough for it. Her sneaky and sketchy ways allowed her to slyly take over the kingdom without anyone knowing.
Hillary Clinton is a lot of things, but mostly she really, really wants to be president. Not only has she been caught lying about emails, but also she uses corporations to fund her campaign. Like Cersei, it seems that Clinton would literally do and take anything to be president.
We thought that this lady was going to be queen forever. Not only was she beautiful, but she was also brilliant in using the system to her advantage. She married many men to become queen, but she also tried everything to save her brother. Margaery was one of the people who also tried to help the Starks during their fight in the north.
Elizabeth Warren is a democratic feminist, and she knows the ins and outs of the United States government. Elizabeth Warren is one of Hillary Clinton’s supporters, which also shows that she uses the system and her connections to her advantage. She is very much like Margaery in this way.
Evil is not a strong enough word for this guy. Not only is he unafraid to kill children, women, family members, or anyone in his way, but he also raped women in the castle. With his takeover of Stark Castle, Ramsay Bolton was one of the evil rulers who could not have been trusted.
Ted Cruz was by far the most abhorrent presidential candidate during this election year. Not only was he inherently racist, but also he used religion as an excuse to decrease the people’s rights. Cruz’s religious beliefs were anti- women’s birth rights and were also against the LGBTQ community. Gross!
This dude is just plain creepy. With his slow voice and uncomfortable dress outfit, he just makes our skin crawl. Also, it’s extremely difficult to distinguish where his loyalties lie. First he was faithful to Cersei, but now he seems faithful to Sansa. It’s hard to pinpoint what is actually going on in this guy’s head.
Jeb Bush was super creepy during the GOP presidential candidate debates. He wasn’t a great speaker, but he did have some impressive family ties. There was always this wonder about, “well would it just be another four years of George?” Jeb Bush just didn’t really have what it took to be president, like at all.
Tyrion Lannister is a little force to be reckoned with. He likes his women, he likes his drinks, but most importantly he likes being the smartest one out of the bunch. Out of all of the Lannisters, Tyrion is the most brilliant and clever. He is able to create battle plans and survive multiple attacks.
Barack Obama has had his fair share of haters. Not only do people want to make up reasons why he is a bad president, (even though he’s not) they want to cut down all that he has done for this country. Like Tyrion, Barack Obama has shown the haters that he is a real genius and that his smarts outweigh his cons.
Joffrey is a little brat without any real talents or smarts. He is completely unqualified to be king and his reaction to anyone not liking his policies is to kill them. Joffrey doesn’t have any sense at all, and this is why he is the worst king of all time.
This one should be completely obvious. Donald Trump is a businessman with no real qualifications to be president. Not only does he have zero experience, but he also has no sense of diplomacy. It seems that Donald Trump will make fun of or hate on anyone whot disagrees with his policies. Trump and Joffrey could be twins.
Robb Stark gave people hope and was the first ever King of the North. He gave hope to the kingdoms and showed them that they wouldn’t have to stand for inequality forever. He was also smoking HOT, with his perfect curly hair and nice, toned body.
He may not be American, but Justin Trudeau could be the real life Robb Stark. Trudeau is the beautiful Prime Minister of Canada who fights for women’s rights and also tries to block racism. He is extremely progressive, as well as just being a genuinely nice guy. We envy you, Canada!
Tormund is a character who is a little rough around the edges, but when it comes down to it, his heart is in the right place. Tormund is one of Jon Snow’s most trusted advisers and also is one of Snow’s most admirable fighters. He fights for only the right leaders, and isn’t at all fake.
Andrew Cuomo is a little left of center, even though his heart is in the right place. Cuomo is currently the governor of New York and has been making some hardcore changes to the state. He helped New York after the dreaded Hurricane Sandy, and has also made progress in New York in regard to same-sex marriage and transgender rights.
Brienne Of Tarth
This is one strong lady. Not only does she have the strength of ten guys, but she also has the brains of ten dudes. She is one of the greatest feminists on the show, but also she shows that women can be just as powerful in battle as men. Brienne always fights against the male patriarchy and superiority.
Gloria Steinem is a feminist and novelist who is helping the female movement. Even though she is not necessarily a politician, she still has intense influence over the government. Today, Steinem is featured on VICELAND, where she hosts a documentary that discusses how women are treated in today’s society.
Jaime Lannister is the MOST complex character on “Game Of Thrones.” Sometimes this character is good, sometimes this character is getting busy with his sister. It’s hard to figure out if Jaime is one of the good guys, but we think that he is. He is simply trying to protect the woman he loves, and his own wants.
It was hard to tell what was going on with Marco Rubio. Rubio was one of the presidential delegates and was one of the good guys of the Republican party. His policies were well-researched and very well thought out, but everyone was too invested in the Trump Drama to notice. Was Rubio actually the best candidate for the job?
Sam is the worst. He’s just a bumbling idiot who always seems to get caught up in unnecessary drama. He’s Jon Snow’s right hand man, but has no talent when it comes to fighting or logical thinking. This son of lords was cast out for being the human version of a potato.
John Kasich is the perfect example of the real-life Sam Tarly. No one really understood why John Kasich stayed in the presidential race. He didn’t have any new ideas or innovative solutions to any problems facing America. Also, when on the campaign trail, he ate his pizza with a fork. That’s all the more reason to hate him.
This guy was just a drunk and bumbling king. He wasn’t even able to tell that his wife hated him and that she was hooking up with her own brother. He couldn’t tell that his own children weren’t his own, even though they looked literally nothing like him. He had absolutely no business in being in charge.
George W. Bush
No matter what you think of George W. Bush’s presidency, his most recent public incident is why this politician is most closely associated with Robert Baratheon. During a memorial for the Dallas shooting victims, Bush began to dance during the song “The Battle Hymn of The Republic,” which was being played in honor of the victims. Not only was this disrespectful, but it made Bush look ridiculous.
Ed Stark is the original OG good guy. He just wanted to be a good king, a good husband, and an excellent dad. However, when the tides turned and Joffrey became king, his reign was cut way too short. We can only imagine how great of a king he would have been.
John F. Kennedy
This is a throwback, but we think that the best real life version of Ed Stark was the legendary JFK. John F. Kennedy was one of the best presidents and represented a young new wave of hope inside the White House. There was a reason that people called his presidency Camelot, even though his presidency and his life were ended way too soon.
This character is a skilled manipulator of words and actions, but does have a loyal heart in the end. His true loyalties are revealed to be to Daenerys and he travels with the brilliant Tyrion because he believes that they will be the best for the kingdoms. This character shows that you can’t easily judge a book by its cover.
Joe Biden is the coolest guy around. Even though he ran for president on his own right, he ended up being one of the greatest vice presidents. Not only is he involved heavily in the fight for LGBTQ rights, but he also is very invested in helping sexual assault victims. He even wrote a letter to the victim of Brock Turner and promised to try to make campuses more safe.
Khal Drogo started out as a TERRIBLE human, but he turned into our moon and stars. He is the leader and king of the Dothraki people and made Daenerys stronger than ever. He was fearless, but also he was willing to do anything, like literally anything, so that his people could be happy.
Again, this one is a pretty big throwback, but Khal Drogo in real life was like Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton was one of the greatest minds behind the Constitution, but he also had some skeletons in his closet. He had affairs, but that didn’t stop him from grinding away to make this country great.
