Trump Gets Dragged By Twitter Users For ‘Game Of Thrones’-Inspired Sanctions Tweet

"You realize the whole 'Winter is coming' thing is BAD, right?" one Twitter user asked the president.

President Donald Trump is touting his reimposition of all U.S. sanctions on Iran in a manner best described as “Lame of Thrones.”

Trump posted a tweet Friday that linked the sanctions to “Game Of Thrones,” HBO’s popular fantasy drama.

Many Twitter users suspected Trump didn’t really understand that the bleak reality of the show isn’t something the U.S. should aspire to.

Some were just confused.

 

Others considered the president’s tweet a sign of the times.

Others decided to answer Trump’s “GoT” reference with their own.

A few people decided the best plan of action was to slightly modify Trump’s tweet.

The tweet didn’t go over to well with “Game of Thrones” cast member Maisie Williams, who sent this response.

HBO wasn’t happy with the tweet either.

“We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes,” the cable network said in a statement to CNBC.
