Others compared the look to Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones.

This is what @MariaBartiromo is going to wear for the next debate. A Fox Business anchor always pays her debts.

Does anyone else think @MariaBartiromo's brooch looks like an old-school Russian spy camera pin? #GOPDebate


A sign...
