Donald Trump is doubling down on Game of Thrones memes

Donald Trump is doubling down on Game of Thrones memes

Political reporters who decompress from covering power by watching shows about power noted that the wall is rendered useless in the season finale of season seven, due to a blue-fire-breathing ice dragon blasting it to smithereens, thus disproving the entire thesis of Trump's vanity project-that only a wall can save us from marauding hordes of violent criminals.

Money for the barrier along the USA southern border has been a source of disagreement amid the ongoing partial government shutdown, which began on December 22.

A few Game of Thrones actors also expressed their disapproval of Trump's power.

Trump displayed the poster facing away from him, ensuring that it would be picked up by the cameras and giggled about by the press. Yet it was also used to cruelly deny sanctuary to the North's human Wildling population - an anti-immigration policy one of the show's heroic protagonists, Jon Snow (Kit Harington), fought to end.

It is unclear whether Trump is a fan of the show.

Trump first shared the graphic back in November, posting it to his Twitter page.

Kawhi Leonard wishes for different end to Spurs tenure
It doesn't surprise me at all, but I'm pleased for Kawhi and Danny to see them both doing well in Toronto. One fan has a custom jersey that he's bringing to the game, and while petty, it's pretty amusing .

The image was first seen back in November, when the president tweeted it out, eliciting protests from HBO.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council and an ardent supporter of Trump in Fox News appearances, said that not all federal workers were critical of the shutdown.

Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, simply wrote: "Ew".

"I think Joffrey is now the king in America", Martin said past year. And he made no connection to the date on the poster - two days before Election Day. Even Joffrey spoke in articulate sentences. The long hibernation of White Walkers removed the Night's Watch's sense of urgency and importance, prompting the power structures of Westeros to stop funneling it resources over time.

Game of Thrones returns in April.
