Things got pretty heated on The View this week when Meghan McCain was told to “please stop talking” by fellow co-host Whoopi Goldberg.

If we could give Goldberg another Oscar for this moment, we would, but instead it’s been immortalised in the GIF hall of fame.

Not one to take this lying down, McCain tweeted out a call to action for her "fellow conservative 'girls' who won’t be quiet," featuring a GIF of Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones.

But… did she… watch the show?

If you aren’t familiar with Dany’s plot arc, she ended up being stabbed to death by her nephew-turned-lover after becoming a genocidal dictator. She burnt thousands of people to their deaths for no reason and, honestly, was driven by a nepotistic entitlement to the Iron Throne.

Naturally, the jokes soon wrote themselves.
