It’s been a few days since HBO said goodbye to its mot successful series, Game of Thrones. In the days following the finale, thousands of fans have run to social media to voice their displeasure with the show’s ending. Some have even gone as far as issuing formal complaints with HBO and filing petitions. Given the show’s widespread fan base, those upset range from your local mailman to members of the United States Congress. In a recent video, 2020 U.S. Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez voiced their frustrations with the HBO drama.

In a short video posted on Twitter, the two politicians expressed their issues with the show’s ending. The freshman congresswoman said, “I feel like we were getting so close to having this ending with just women running the world.” She added, “And then the last two episodes, it’s like, ‘Oh, they’re too emotional.’ It’s like, ugh, this was written by men!” Warren echoed the sentiments of her fellow congresswoman. The presidential candidate became a fan of Sansa, but was frustrated when she didn’t achieve the ultimate goal of becoming the ultimate ruler. She explained, “Sansa, who already is Queen of the North, thank you very much, she walks away saying ‘I’ll still be Queen of the North.” She later said, “C’mon Sansa! Go for the big one.”
It’s unclear if the two will tune in for the show’s prequel down the line.
