Trump Tweets ‘Game Of Thrones’ Meme To ‘Haters’ Before Mueller Report Release

President Donald Trump has once again tweeted a “political” Game of Thrones meme, despite the fact that HBO has requested that he not do that. It’s not like people wanting him not to do things has that ever stopped him before.

The HBO hit show, with which it doesn’t seem Trump is even remotely familiar, at one point used the Stark family motto “Winter Is Coming” in promos. In November, Trump used Game of Thrones imagery to tweet that Iran sanctions were “coming.” In January, it was that “The Wall” was also “coming,” although clearly, no one told him what happens to the actual Wall in the show.

So it was no big surprise when Trump decided to go with a GoT meme on the day Robert Mueller’s report is set to be released, right after Attorney General Willliam Barr’s news conference ended. The President tweeted an image of himself, from behind, surrounded by mist, standing next to words reading, “No Collusion, No Obstruction. For The Haters And The Radical Left Democrats—.” And then, in much bigger type, the words “Game Over” written in the easily recognizable GoT font.

The reaction on Twitter was quick, harsh, and occasionally hilarious, as it always is. The people who responded, that is, the ones who weren’t busy sighing so hard at this ridiculous meme that they accidentally propelled themselves into neighbors’ apartments.

Some people tweeted at HBO to point out Trump’s meme.

In the past, HBO has said that they would “prefer” their trademark “not be misappropriated for political purposes.” Most likely they’ll respond the same way this time, but that won’t keep me from hoping they send a dragon to Trump him instead.
