In the lighthearted 11-second clip, she dances and sings (or lip-syncs) to a line from Edwin Starr’s Motown classic, War: “What’s the point? Absolutely nothing,” pointing half-playfully, half-defiantly at the camera before bursting into laughter and throwing herself through her office door as if she’d held her seat on Capitol Hill for years, not 24 hours.

Along with the clip, she wrote, “I hear the GOP [Republican party] think women dancing are outrageous. Wait till they find out that congresswomen dance too! Have a great weekend everyone :)”

If it’s clear that someone on Trump’s team knows enough about Game of Thrones to know that there is indeed a wall, maybe his team should watch the show a bit more before establishing other parallels between Trump’s desired border wall and the ice wall in the HBO series.
