13 Ridiculous 'GoT' Products Great for All the Wrong Reasons

Hillary Clinton identifies with "Game of Thrones" villain Cersei Lannister in her new book detailing the nasty 2016 presidential campaign.

"Crowds at Trump rallies called for my imprisonment more times than I can recount," she wrote in her memoir, "What Happened." "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 tell-all hit bookshelves Tuesday morning, and it's an extremely candid retrospective of everything that contributed to her crushing loss to Donald Trump on November 8, 2016.

"Writing this wasn't easy," she admits in the book's introduction. "Every day that I was a candidate for President, I knew that millions of people were counting on me, and I couldn't bear the idea of letting them down. But I did. I couldn't get the job done, and I'll have to live with that for the rest of my life."

Much like the relentless ice queen, Clinton was hellbent on taking down anyone who stood in her way of the White House (or in the case of Lannister, the Iron Throne).

But in the memoir, Clinton highlights a time an older woman demanded that her adult daughter apologize to Clinton for not voting, which proved that Clinton -- although relentless -- was not in sole control of her ultimate fate.

"I wanted to stare right in her eyes and say, 'You didn't vote? How could you not vote?! You abdicated your responsibility as a citizen at the worst possible time! And now you want me to make you feel better?'" Clinton wrote. "Of course, I didn't say any of that. These people were looking for absolution that I just couldn't give. We all have to live with the consequences of our decisions."
