HBO slams Trump's Game of Thrones tweet about the Mueller report

Interesting A- A A+

HBO is once again asking the president to stop trying to siphon off the success of Game of Thrones.

The network put out a statement condemning Donald Trump’s tweet that plays off the hugely popular fantasy hit in an attempt to frame the conclusions of Robert Mueller’s long-awaited report investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“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,” HBO said.

On Thursday morning, Trump tweeted an image of himself, back turned, with text reading “No collusion. No obstruction. For the haters and the radical left Democrats— Game Over.”


The tweet uses a font used by GoT along with “Game” to riff on the show’s branding.

Last November, the president did another Thrones-inspired tweet to announce “Sanctions Are Coming” to Iran.


While star Kit Harington (Jon Snow) has slammed Trump by saying: “I believe in experts … Mr. Donald Trump — I wouldn’t call him ‘President,’ I’ll call him ‘Mister.’ I think this man at the head of your country is a con artist.”
