Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and freshman representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the final of HBO & # 39; s hit show Game of Thrones was ruined by men who thought women were too emotional to lead.
& # 39; I feel like we're getting so close to this end with only women running around the world, and then it's the last two episodes like: & # 39; Oh, they are too emotional, the end & # 39 ;, said Ocasio-Cortez about the series final, which aired on Sunday night,
& # 39; It's like, ugh! This is written by men, & Ocasio-Cortez complained.
In a video posted on Twitter Tuesday, where the two appeared side by side, Warren, a Democratic candidate from 2020, agreed with the assessment by the congressman from New York.
& # 39; Working family-oriented policy + Sex conflicts of Game of Thrones. Choose an official who can do both, & # 39; tweet Ocasio-Cortez along with the video, add that the two would also release another video later in the week on which & # 39; something we are working on.
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (right) and the Massachusetts Senate, Elizabeth Warren, said they were disappointed at the end of the hit HBO show & # 39; Game of Thrones & # 39; because a woman didn't walk around the world & # 39;
The two appeared side by side in a video posted on Twitter and claim that men have ruined the end because they think women & # 39; are too emotional & # 39; are to rule
In a tweet with the video of the two talking about the hit show, Ocasio-Cortez said that another video of the two would be released later in the week with & # 39; something we are working on & # 39; – probably more policy-related
The popular show has a cult-like following and is based on a novel by George R. R. Martin & # 39; A Song of Ice and Fire. & # 39; It concluded in the weekend after broadcast on HBO for eight years.
The most important quest in the series is the struggle to find the rightful king or queen to rule over the seven kingdoms in Westeros and on the so-called & # 39; Iron Throne & # 39; to sit down.
The conclusion left many fans dissatisfied – and even angry – when one of the main heroines, Daenerys Targaryen, went mad and burned an entire city with her dragon.
Antagonist and Targaryen's beloved Jon Snow killed her when it became clear that she had gone mad and would use her new power to burn other cities on the ground.
Snow stabbed the woman he loved, while the two shared one last kiss, and he wept over her dead body.
Many who follow the show felt that Targaryen was the rightful heir to the throne, and cheered for a woman to lead, and others cheered for Snow to take control and rule as King.
Instead of saving the lives of innocent civilians, the female protagonist Daenerys Targaryen chose to burn the city while riding her dragon. Many wanted this character to end up as the victor in the battle to rule over Westeros
Jon Snow, her beloved (and family member), eventually killed her when he discovered that she would continue to use her power and position to cause destruction
The two legislators even said they would have been happy if Sansa Stark, another female character, would have ended up as queen instead of her brother becoming king
Sansa Stark continued as queen of the north, but did not become the queen of Westeros
Neither of them ended up sitting on the throne, with one dead and the other exiled to the north. But a man, Bran Stark, was chosen to rule.
Warren thought that Brans's older sister, Sansa Stark, should have been the one who took the throne when Snow and Targaryen were no longer able.
& # 39; I was even willing to make a quick wedding service at the end when Dany went crazy & # 39 ;, Warren said, referring to the character by a nickname used by fans. & # 39; So I was over to Sansa. I thought so, Team Sansa. & # 39;
Sansa, although ultimately not the Queen of Westeros, retained her title as Queen of the North.
& # 39; I was disappointed, & # 39; said Ocasio-Cortez about the final. & # 39; We need to do a feminist analysis in HBO. & # 39;
& # 39; They need some help for this, & # 39; Warren replied.
The author of the book on which the series is based is a man and a large majority of the writers and executive producers in the series are also men.
Ocasio-Cortez could indicate in a video with Warren that she supports the candidate in her 2020 bid for president, but she also worked as an organizer for Senator Bernie Sanders' 2016 campaign and was able to support him again
Warren is one of the more progressive candidates under 24 running
Ocasio-Cortez is a 29-year-old progressive representative. She rose to fame last year when in the first race for the 2018 mid-term elections, she beat the 10-year-old Democratic sitting congressman in New York Joe Crowley.
The self-proclaimed democratic socialist has not yet approved a presidential candidate for 2020, but was an organizer for the 2016 campaign of independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders before running to the House.
Sanders makes his second consecutive bid for the party's nomination to take on President Donald Trump.
Earlier this month, Ocasio-Cortez said that it entertained the idea of making a primary approval & # 39; and spoke positively about Sanders and Warren.
She said that she strongly supports & # 39; Bernie & # 39; s run & # 39; without giving full approval.
Two weeks ago, Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez introduced legislation that would lower credit card interest rates by 15 percent, a drastic fall from some 30 and 40 percent interest rates.
24 Democrats are already working for the party's nomination, and Sanders and Warren are two of the most progressive candidates in the bunch.
Sanders is one of the most popular in the race, often ranked as the second among likely registered Democratic voters, just behind former vice president Joe Biden.
