Game of Thrones Political Ad Makes Us Question Our Love For Daenerys (Not Really)

Here Be Dragons


Earlier in the week we showed you a Game of Thrones political advertisement from Mother Jones questioning the very air Joffrey Baratheon breathes. And with good reason. He sucks. Now we bring you one taking issue with Daenerys. As much as we want to shout, “NO, SHE IS THE KHALEESI, SHE CAN DO NO WRONG!” we must admit, they did a great job making her seem evil.
