Emilia Clarke Channels Khaleesi For Clinton Endorsement In Badass Instagram

Emilia Clarke – who you might know as Daenerys Targaryen, aka “the mother of dragons” – just made it very clear where she stands in this election with a badass Instagram post.

As far as we can tell, Clarke is a British citizen. She's born in London, so she won't be voting in the US presidential election. Based on this post, however, it's pretty safe to say she's “With Her” and all about that nasty woman life.

It looks like this amazing meme of Hillary Clinton as the “mother of dragons” was originally posted by Jessica Chastain after the first presidential debate.

But whatever: If anyone has the right to repost this, it's Emilia Clarke, whose character on “Game of Thrones” is the ultimate nasty woman.

I'm A Nasty Woman Because...

It's not that surprising she'd support Hillary Clinton: She's clearly an advocate of gender equality.

Over the summer, Clarke complained about the lack of penises shown on “Game of Thrones” and how — in addition to things like the gender pay gap — this highlights sexism and inequality in the entertainment industry.

Just like Khaleesi, she isn't afraid to express her opinion (and she's usually right).

But Clarke isn't the only “Game of Thrones” actor to get political when she's not on screen, killing anyone who gets in her way.

Lena Headey, aka Cersei Lannister, has been known to voice her opinions on a wide array of issues.

Headey recently penned an emotional letter about the global refugee crisis, urging world leaders to do more.

She also basically endorsed Michelle Obama for president after the first lady's incredible speech at the Democratic National Convention in July.

If it were up to the women of “Game of Thrones,” it's pretty safe to say Hillary Clinton would end up on America's “Iron Throne.”

This past season of “Game of Thrones” was all about powerful, fearless women. Perhaps this theme will also be reflected in the real world via the US election.

Today's Election Day, so I guess we'll find out soon enough.
