The Trump administration is no stranger to appropriating pop culture for their own means before being asked to cut the shit. Very recently, both Pharrell Williams and the ghost of Prince told Trump and his shady crew to stop using their music at his signature stir-em’-up-with-self-delusion rallies. This week, some tool on Trump’s social media team thought it would be laffy to steal from Game of Thrones to preview the reinstating of sanctions against Iran. Because if there’s a time for dopey memes, it’s when you’re negotiating extremely sensitive diplomacy around nuclear fucking weapons. Anyway, HBO followed Pharrell and spectral Prince by telling Trump to stop using their Game of Thrones concepts, their font, and any excitement over their final season.
Before Jon Snow started humping on his Aunt and prepared to dominate Westeros, he was throwing his leg over a special ginger wilding with a sparkle in her feral eye. Many nerds (myself included) were devastated when Ygritte was offed in season four (wipes tears from eyes). Well, for those of us with our legs straddling both “Game of Thrones” world and – hand quotes – “The Real World,” People.com reports that the taboo love of Jon Snow and Ygritte has transcended to a real life wedding.
Actors Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie were married yesterday at Rayne Church in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Their reception was at the fancy Wardhill Castle, which Rose’s fancy family owns.
William Bradley Pitt is on the prowl and at a charity auction on Saturday, he tried to bid his way to a date with the mother of dragons herself, Emilia Clarke. I guess the Golden Globes wasn’t the only hot ticket in town this weekend! So how much does it cost to make time with the worst wig in Westeros? More than Brad’s final bid of $120,000!
Even though last season on Game Of Thrones was shorter than the others, it seemed to take an eternity for us to get to the good stuff, and that’s (SPOILER ALERT) Jon Snow (aka Kit Harington) taking Aunt Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) to pound town. While we all kinda sickeningly rooted for some incest to rock the headboard, we’re going to be waiting a long ass time to see what happens the morning after. As in, no new episodes until 2019.

I’m pretty clueless about Game of Thrones (that’s not an invitation to leak more information, hackers). But I’m aware of the direwolf cuteness on Game of Thrones. The direwolves on Game of Thrones, like Arya Stark’s Nymeria, are obviously played by huskies and not actual wolves. According to Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones has the same effect as 101 Dalmatians did in 1997; people are still getting pupnotized by the cuteness they seen on screen. But before you seek out a husky to recreate Game of Thrones at home, Peter is here to politely ask that you think twice about that.
I don’t understand some people. For example D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, the showrunners for HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones. It’s no secret that their show, which I absolutely love, takes place in a world with magic, brutality and a hierarchy of white people plotting against each other for the Iron Throne. But riddle me this; why are all the people of color either slaves, whores or dickless warriors all aiding the white folks with their fight? And with GoT’s imminent conclusion on the horizon, David and D.B. are trading in their pretend dragons for Grand Dragons of the KKK with their new show Confederate, a re-imagined tale of what life would be like if slavery (yes, that slavery) still existed in modern times. The public has been all kinds of “Aw Hell Nah!” about this mess for quite a while, and last night HBO finally responded after a new hashtag on Twitter blew up their world like Loras and Margaery Tyrell.
