A woman famous for burning her constituents, sleeping with her brother, and killing a little girl’s pet is calling for Donald Trump’s impeachment. Ouch.
Ok, so Queen Cersei herself isn’t praying Trump gets voted out of office but Lena Headey, the actress who plays her on “Game of Thrones,” is.
What's it called when one gets impeached before one actually takes office?

I think it's called a stroke of necessary GENIUS at this point https://t.co/99Eo94B1MZ

In Game of Thrones’ six-year run, Headey has spent a lot of time in the mind of an egomaniacal blonde heiress facing public scorn and unwanted hair loss. In the most recent season, she even shocked everyone with an unlikely power grab. She too makes bold promises — “I’ll burn their cities to the ground” — although she seems to have more follow-through than Trump.
But, despite similarities between Trump and her career-making character, there’s no love lost between Heady and the president-elect. And this is a woman who could love even Joffrey.
