Last GoT post, I promise

This scene had me laughing so hard.

Here’s the setup: Dany is dead, Jon is in prison, the Unsullied are running Kings Landing. There’s a council of the nobility of the realm. Tyrion says they should pick a new king. Grey Worm looks like he’s had enough of this crazy continent so he agrees. Let’s get this over with.

So there they all are, ready to vote and Edmure Tully, the most mediocre man in the kingdom gets up to make a stump speech. He recounts his minor accomplishments, skipping over the part where he spent much of the years between his Red Wedding and the death of House Frey in a dungeon.

But enough explanation, let’s roll the scene (sound quality not great, you might have to turn it up):

This is going to be my tweet the next time some mediocre white male politician, septuagenarian or small town mayor gets the idea that he deserves to be president more than the women who have earned it.

“Uncle, please sit.”
