The former secretary of State was asked during a New York event to pick which small screen depiction gets Washington right.

“May I ask you — this is a question I get a lot because I lived a life in politics, nothing like yours — which is closer to reality of life in politics, which TV show? 'The West Wing' or 'Veep?'” moderator Paul Begala asked.

“Oh, probably ‘Game of Thrones,’” Clinton quipped as the audience laughed. “At least in my experience.”

The former presidential candidate has referenced the pop-culture phenomenon in the past and compared herself to the ruthless character of Cersei Lannister.

She wrote in her post-election memoir “What Happened” that she saw her treatment at the hands of Trump supporters to be similar to the treatment the powerful queen received.

“Crowds at Trump rallies called for my imprisonment more times than I can count,” she writes. “They shouted, ‘Guilty! Guilty!’ like the religious zealots in ‘Game of Thrones’ chanting ‘Shame! Shame!’ while Cersei Lannister walked back to the Red Keep.”

Hillary Clinton's husband, former President Clinton, who was also speaking at the event, gave a different answer.

“The most realistic show on television, in my opinion, and you can say I’m self-interested, is ‘Madam Secretary,’” he said.

The former commander in chief said the CBS drama starring Téa Leoni as a secretary of State is the show the most like a “functioning government.”
