Appearing on Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast, Ocasio-Cortez was asked who was ultimately going to sit on the coveted “Iron Throne” at the end of the series, which will wrap up its final season this year.
“Could you imagine if no one ends up on the throne and they transition to democracy?” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Like, wouldn’t that be badass?”
“That is such a skillful answer,” Yahoo News editor-in-chief Daniel Klaidman joked to the politician.
After being pressed for her “expectation” instead of what her hope was, the freshman congresswoman predicted that Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, played by Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke, would “take the whole thing” and build a second throne for the two of them.
The season eight premiere, which aired on Sunday after a lengthy hiatus, netted a whopping 17.4 million viewers, setting new records for HBO. The series finale of the Emmy-winning fantasy drama is set to air May 19.
“That does not particularly animate right now,” she said, adding that she has “a lot of issues” with a potential Biden run.
“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”
Ocasio-Cortez, who was an organizer for Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign, said she was still supportive of the Vermont senator’s run, but that other candidates have also caught her attention.
“I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” she told “Skullduggery.” “I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational.”
The 29-year-old, who is currently too young to be eligible for the presidential office, remained demure when asked if she would one day make a run.
“I think about it every once in a while, but … this is pretty hard already,” she said.
