Have you ever confused statements from Donald Trump with anything spoken by Joffrey and his Lannister brethren on? Have you ever wondered what the heck the presidential candidate is talking about? Then this mash-up is for you.
Some creative genius who goes by the name Huw Parkinson online, described by Australia’s ABC network as “a Walkley Award winning editor,” inserted Trump into the world of Westeros to create “Game of Thrones: Winter Is Trumping,” which is then sub-sub-titled on Twitter as “A song of ice…and…fired?” All of sudden, his works make perfect sense. His jabber about radicals was obviously directed at the Dothraki standing dirtied and tired at the gates of Qarth. His “people are the people” comments clearly came out of a small counsel meeting, because nothing good comes from those things anyway. And that “wall” of his actually sounds less like a work of fiction in this fictitious scenario.
Even Littlefinger and Varys, arguably two of the smartest men in the room at any given time, aren’t buying what he’s hawking. Obviously I have some deep-seated issues with Trump. So to those supporters of his out there, all I can say is: ignore me and watch because it’s pretty hysterical. It might be funnier than Melisandre attending Seth Meyers’ baby shower. Check it out below:
It does make me wish for The Mother of Dragons to pop out of the screen and run to become the first woman president of the U.S. Where’s the White House petition for that one? So far mocking Trump in various memes and GIFs on the Internet hasn’t worked, so maybe the only way to beat him is an army of dragons. If that’s the case, his opponents should be way more terrified. (Editor’s Note: unless he controls the White Walkers!)
At the very least, this mash-up helps bide our time before Game of Thrones returns for Season 6 on April 24th.
