Trump Posts ‘Game of Thrones’ Meme And Twitter Explodes

Donald Trump posted a Game of Thrones meme. Yes, it’s come to that. It was a picture of himself with the words “Sanctions are Coming” replacing the Thrones tagline, “Winter is Coming.”

The meme included the date November 5, referring to the fact that on that date, Trump is reimposing U.S. sanctions on Iran that were waived during the nuclear deal.

Predictably, Twitter went bananas, responding to Trump’s ridiculous meme tweet with jokes and memes galore.

HBO sent a statement to BuzzFeed News saying, “We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes.”

Come on, HBO, what’s the problem? Doesn’t Trump make an excellent White Walker?
