Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., playfully brushed aside accusations she spoiled a part of the plot in the hit HBO drama "Game of Thrones" during a speech, saying "it's a little hard to do a spoiler 21 hours" after the program was on air, The Hill reported Tuesday.
In order to make a point about public education, Warren made reference Monday to a sequence from the latest episode of the program's final season in which two main characters are crushed by falling rocks in the midst of a battle scene set up by the senator's favorite character, Daenerys Targaryen.
"The burden put on people who are trying to get an education so they can build a future, it's like dumping rocks on them," Warren said to approximately 300 educators and students in Philadelphia.
After some in the crowd pointed out she used the top show to illustrate her argument, a reporter asked the senator if she spoiled the episode for those who had not seen it the previous evening.
"'Game of Thrones' is already out in public now. C'mon," Warren said jokingly. "It's a little hard to do a spoiler 21 hours later."
Last month Warren told New York magazine that Targaryen is her favorite character on the show.
She explained "This is a revolutionary idea, in Westeros or anywhere else. A queen who declares that she doesn't serve the interests of the rich and powerful? A ruler who doesn't want to control the political system but to break the system as it is known?"
