Trump's Triumphant "Game Of Thrones " Tweet On Russia Collusion Report

Trump's Triumphant

Quite surprisingly USA where the series originally hails from, came at number 3 in terms of illegal views of the first episode of Game of Thrones. While the first episode "Winterfell" of the final season has already been aired, there are some who aren't sure of what had happened in the previous seasons. "For the haters and the radical left Democrats", it said.

This is not the first time HBO objected to Trump and his team drawing inspiration from "Game of Thrones". On Thursday, even before the release of Mueller's long-awaited report, Trump was ready and declared "Game Over" through his tweet.

The Twitter post on Trump's account features an image of the president, seen from the rear, in a foggy - or smoky? - landscape. "I think Joffrey is now the king in America", Martin said in 2017. The new photos feature Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), among others. In November, he tweeted a typically idiotic "Sanctions are coming" meme, followed by "The Wall is coming" in January.

'US Congress stands with Ireland on Brexit,' Says Nancy Pelosi
But part of the process was to persuade her to visit Ireland, leading a congressional delegation as she is doing this week. She certainly was playing to a friendly crowd in Dáil Eireann today as she addressed members, past and present.

EW was on the GoT set on Election Day in 2016, and one of the show's writers at the time objected to the popular Joffrey comparison.

Game Of Thrones has always been a target for pirates, but the scale of the problem just keeps accelerating, despite the best efforts of the TV industry to control illegal streams, downloads and torrents.

Chris Spadaccini, HBO's Executive Vice President and head of marketing, said during Variety's Entertainment Marketing Summit in March this year that they don't want to pick a fight with the president.
