HBO responds to Trump’s ‘Game of Thones’ inspired photo

Yesterday, President Trump tweeted a hilarious photo parody of the “Game of Thrones” phrase “Winter is Coming.” The photo, which shows a serious Trump glancing off into the distance with a snowy background, is captioned “Sanctions are Coming.”

HBO has responded and they aren’t especially pleased, issuing the following statement.

“We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes.”

The official HBO Twitter account also addressed the image with a tweet saying, “How do you say trademark misuse in Dothraki?” (If you don’t know what that is, you clearly aren’t a fan of GOT 🙂 )

The cast members weren’t especially thrilled with the image either.

HBO says they won’t seek legal action against the President and the White House clarified that the tweet is in reference to forthcoming sanctions against Iran.
