Sophie, Maisie slam Trump for ‘Game of Thrones’-inspired tweet

HBO has expressed its displeasure over US President Donald Trump's usage of the slogan for its hit show "Game of Thrones". I doubt HBO will sway him away from using Game of Thrones catch phrases, either, but no one can sustain an objection you don't make, so on and on it goes.

"Game Of Thrones" star Sophie Turner - who hasn't hesitated to give Trump flak in the past - offered a succinct rebuke of the tweet. Trump has said that he will reinstate them on Monday, hours before the midterm elections.

"The goal of the United States in all this was to regain the domination it had in the era of the tyranny, but it could not", the Leader added, referring to the period prior to the Islamic Revolution when the Shah of Iran was the top U.S. ally in the region.

And in a tweet, HBO said, "How do you say trademark misuse in Dothraki?". The Sansa Stark of "Game of Thrones" and the fiancee of Joe Jonas said, "Ew". "She tweeted 'Not Today".

People magazine also reached out to the White House for a comment but failed to get a response.

While @flump23 added: "Surely the votes need to be halted". "This follows the sound issues on part of last night's show". Well as in previous weeks the results show airs on ITV at 8.30pm, before the Sheridan Smith special Coming Home.

Cast members weren't having it either. Although they have often carried a much lighter context than the president 's obnoxious remarks.

Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin weighed in on the scandal and tweeted a message to Trump as well.

Many Twitter users suspected Trump didn't really understand that the bleak reality of the show isn't something the USA should aspire to.

A few days ago, rap veterans T.I. and Pusha-T applauded hip-hop producer Pharrell for having a cease and desist letter sent to Trump after he played his "Happy" smash at a rally.
