Trump is still using fake “Game of Thrones” posters to promote his $5 billion wall — even through the wall on “Game of Thrones” didn’t actually work.
Trump has tweeted and Instagrammed political messaging around the wall using “Game of Thrones” poster formats, and fans of the show rushed to Twitter to call out the irony.
Trump demanding money for his border wall while proudly displaying a meme ripped from a show where a giant wall very prominently failed to protect a kingdom that’s in disarray thanks in part to a sociopathic boy-king is almost too perfect.

I’m sure I’m certainly not the first person to point this out but before choosing Game of Thrones for your pro-wall messaging, perhaps maybe watch Game of Thrones to see how the whole wall thing pans out https://t.co/zMRqvJmC0C

In November, Trump used “Game of Thrones” taglines to promote sanctions on Iran, which prompted a very negative response from show star Sophie Turner and others. The sanctions poster was even physically printed and put on display recently at a White House meeting.
HBO scolded trump for unfairly using their trademark font, stating, “We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes.”
Meanwhile, 800,000 government workers are working without pay due to the partial shutdown over wall funding.
