Media Go Mad Over Trump’s ‘Game of Thrones’-Inspired Iran Sanctions Announcement
'It appears the governing of the United States has changed from a reality TV show into a fantasy TV show,' said one writer
After President Donald Trump tweeted a “Game of Thrones”-inspired meme on Friday in announcing the return of U.S. sanctions against Iran, many gobsmacked mainstream media members could not contain their bias.
Trump tweeted out a dramatic meme of himself emblazoned with the words, “Sanctions are coming November 5.”
That’s an obvious reference to the hit HBO show’s iconic tagline, “Winter is coming.”
He gave no further explanation.
The White House’s official Twitter account retweeted Trump’s meme — and noted, “President @realDonaldTrump is reimposing all sanctions lifted under the unacceptable Iran deal. The U.S. is reimposing the toughest sanctions ever on Iran, targeting many of the corrupt regime’s critical sectors.”
“The United States has launched a campaign of economic pressure to deny the regime the funds it needs to advance its bloody agenda!” the White House added.
