Hillary Clinton will reportedly announce her campaign for President of the United States Sunday, which, suspiciously, is the same time Game of Thrones and Veep—two very different shows about power brokering—return to HBO.

Fans of the Julia Louis-Dreyfus comedy Veep will recall that Vice President Selena Meyers was sworn in as Commander-in-Chief last season. But considering how often Selena’s people bungle delicate situations, perhaps Hillary would prefer the Game of Thrones comparison. Is House Clinton trying to associate itself with the ruthless fantasy characters in their own bid for the American throne? People on Twitter seem to think so, joking that the timing is, well, pretty perfect.
