Trump Tweeted A Shitty ‘Game Of Thrones’ Meme And Now The Cast And Crew Are Roasting Him

He knows nothing.

Donald Trump roasted for Game of Thrones meme

The makers of Game of Thrones have hit out at Donald Trump after he used a meme inspired by the fantasy show to announce that the US will on Monday re-impose sanctions on Iran. And goddamn, just when you forget what a fucking idiot that man is, you go and read a sentence like that, and it all comes flooding back.

The meme in question features an image of Trump and the words “sanctions are coming” in the same font used by HBO to promote Game of Thrones. Apparently no one explained to him that in the series, “winter is coming” is an expression that means something terrible is on the horizon.

In any case, HBO was less than happy with the President, with the network’s Twitter account suggesting he may have committed trademark infringement.

Actor Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, was similarly unimpressed, and hit back with a bit of Braavosi sass.

Her on-screen sister, Sophie Turner, had an even simpler message for the President.

Meanwhile, Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin responded to Trump’s tweet with a message encouraging Americans to get out and vote in next week’s midterm elections.

Martin has previously compared Trump to one of the series’ most hated villains, King Joffrey, telling Esquire last year that “I think Joffrey is now the king in America… and he’s grown up just as petulant and irrational as he was when he was thirteen in the books”.

It’s kind of scary how apt a comparison that is, hey.
