Mitt Romney Probably Regrets This ‘Game Of Thrones’ Mother’s Day Tribute After Last Night’s Episode

WARNING: This post contains spoilers for Game Of Thrones, Season 8,  Episode 5: “The Bells”

Is there anything worse than boomers trying to keep up on pop culture? It’s like watching someone try to hit a tee ball and strike out in spectacular fashion.

It’s bad enough that the President of the United States likes to post nonsensical Game of Thrones memes, despite having clearly never seen the show, now other hapless politicians are trying to get in on the act.

Cue Mitt Romney.

In a desperate attempt to jump onto a trending topic and ride it like an angry dragon Romney posted a “Mother Of Dragons” tribute to his wife Ann for Mother’s Day. It’s already a pretty confusing metaphor. If the Romney’s sons are dragons and Ann is Daenerys what does that make Mitt? A dragon sperm donor? A dragon step-dad? It’s unclear.

But ignoring all of that the timing turned out to be atrocious as Game of Throne’s one-time heroine, Daenerys Targaryen, the aforementioned Mother of Dragons, turned into a war crimes-committing monster in the space of last night’s episode by burning an entire city and its inhabitants to ashes.

Basically Mitt just compared his dear wife to a genocidal maniac.

It was indeed a lovely gift…to the internet.
