Donald Trump catches the finger wag from HBO's powers that be.
Game Of Thrones fever has reached a monumental state. Naturally, the internet has been vibrant with buzzing Thrones memes, many of which include the piercing gaze of Brandon Stark. Given the fervent nature of the Thrones takeover, it was only a matter of time before Donald Trump revisited his "Sanctions Are Coming" formula, once again blending HBO's series with real-world politics. And once again, HBO has taken a stance against it.
Citing a recent development from the Mueller trial, Donald Trump offered a firm message to his opposition. "No collusion. No obstruction," he writes. "For the haters and radical left democrats - GAME OVER." And of course, he made sure to utilize the signature Game Of Thrones font for additional emphasis. Now, speaking with The Blast, an HBO representative has issued a response to Trump's chosen meme, elaborating on why they're not for it. “Though we can understand the enthusiasm for Game of Thrones now that the final season has arrived, we still prefer our intellectual property not be used for political purposes," writes the rep.
If you recall, Donald Trump previously caught some flak from HBO for the aforementioned "Sanctions Are Coming" meme, which prompted the network to hit him with the snark.
