‘Coincidence?’: Twitter Finds Parallels Between Game of Thrones and #HillarysBigAnnouncement

Hillary Clinton’s campaign apparatus has let it be known that she will make her official 2016 announcement via social media this Sunday, April 12.

For this Sunday is also the day that season five of Game of Thrones premieres on HBO.

This confluence was not lost on those who talk politics and television on Twitter, with people quickly drawing parallels between the two events — and hoping Clinton does not somehow overshadow a day that was supposed to be all about Game of Thrones.

Below are the highlights:
