There lies a 'Game of Thrones' fan in United States President Donald Trump, and the appearance of his poster inspired by the series is a testament to the same.
During a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Trump sent a vague message to the world as he brought along a special GoT poster featuring an image of him staring dramatically into the dark and stormy distance. The poster contained the warning "Sanctions Are Coming" - a spoof of the Stark family's iconic phrase "Winter Is Coming."
During the meeting, Trump mentioned that the sanctions have worked with regards to Iran, but made no mention of North Korea, CNN reported.
The giant poster was first seen on Trump's Twitter account on November 2, as the Trump administration prepared to announce new sanctions from the "Westeros Wing" on Iran, completing the removal of the US from the 2015 nuclear deal.
Not so pleased by Trump's gesture, HBO mocked him by writing, "How do you say trademark misuse in Dothraki?" on Twitter.
Recently, even Karan Johar had trolled the US President by sharing a funny illustration where he is standing on a weighing scale and shouting, “Fake news.”
Meanwhile, the popular TV series is gearing up for the release of the eight and final season, set to hit the screens by April. Coming to the eighth season, it will finally feature the much-anticipated showdown between the men of Westeros and the dreaded White Walkers, who have finally passed through the great wall and have brought the Long Night with them. The teaser of the show was released on December 7 and had gone viral immediately.
