WASHINGTON, D.C. (WJZ) — Game of Thrones or Game of Trump?
President Trump once again, took to Twitter to express his feelings on the Mueller report.
Attorney General William Barr released the long-anticipated report by special counsel Robert Mueller on Russian interference in the 2016 election. Barr held a press conference Thursday morning to discuss the report’s release.
Meanwhile, before the report had been released- President Trump released his own reactions.
The president has used Game of Thrones in the past, with this tweet, however- he directly called out Democrats saying what he has long-called a “witch hunt” is over.
“No collusion. No obstruction. For the haters and the radical left Democrats,” Trump tweeted. “GAME OVER”
The Justice Department has posted the Mueller report here.
While it hasn’t been confirmed if the president is an actual diehard Game of Thrones fan, or if he can legally use the trademark to post Game of Thrones’ font, style, etc., we can safely assume he’s embraced the meme culture.
A previous tweet teased sanctions, saying “Sanctions are Coming” referring to new sanctions against Iran in November. The tweet received mixed reviews.
HBO expressed their discontent with the use of their iconic logo, not directly responding back to the president, but tweeting on their own account for the world to see.
No Game of Thrones cast members have responded to the most recent “Game Over” tweet yet.
