2020 presidential candidates Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) among them.

"I'm sad", said Ocasio-Cortez in a video of the two legislators posted to Warren's Twitter account Tuesday.

Like many of us, Warren didn't expect the character to take such a sharp turn to become a city-slaughterer, and Warren admitted she was "so blue" about Dany breaking mad near the end. "I hated it. I hated the last three episodes". Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez among those who were not impressed by the "Game Of Thrones" finale.

"I was particularly upset about how the writers treated the character of Khaleesi", she added.

"It's like, ugh, this was written by men", said Ocasio-Cortez.

"I trust the Speaker is taking a measured approach to ensure that we're moving everyone forward", she said. Sansa did manage to negotiate (nay, demand) the independence of the North, so that she could become queen, but Warren thinks that wasn't a bold enough move for her to make.

Olsen was selected to read a monologue from the end of the first season in two different accents. Despite her unsuccessful audition Olsen fell in love with the show.

"It was just, just really ... meh", Warren said.

Warren even said she was willing to make "a quick allegiance shift" to Sansa Stark after Daenerys "went nuts" and became the Mad Queen, but in the end she was disappointed that Sansa made a decision to just stay Queen of the North, saying, "Come on Sansa!" In the final episode, her younger brother Bran is crowned King and Lord of the Six Kingdoms, while the North splits off to become an independent kingdom with Sansa as its queen.

"Then Sansa - who is already queen of the North, thank you very much - she walks away saying, 'And I'll still be queen of the North.' Come on, Sansa, go for the big one!" But both politicians express disappointment that in the end, women didn't end up "running the world".

"We need to get some feminine analysis up in HBO", AOC concluded.

It is unclear why Warren and Gillibrand supported Daenerys in earlier seasons in spite of her predilection for violence and nation-building.
