The Game of Thrones Comparisons to Donald Trump Are Apt & Terrifying
As if tonight's episode of Game of Thrones didn't have enough oh-shit moments, Twitter has continued the jaw-drop by making some pretty poignant comparisons between Cersei and Donald Trump.
Remember how I said last week's episode of Game of Thrones was a slow burn? Episode 2 was decidedly not. The war is on, and it is going to be a rollercoaster of a ride. I can't get over Arya reuniting with Nymeria. Sam continued the cringeworthy moments with the greyscale peeling. Get it, Grey Worm and Missandei. Of course, that battle scene with Euron, Yara and Theon had my heart pounding. And then there was Cersei...
I'm not really sure if the creators did the whole Donald Trump-Cersei thing on purpose, but damn is it hard to ignore once you read these tweets.
Not only is Game of Thrones one of the most compelling stories ever, but the fact that the show can make such real-world comparisons so effortlessly means its place in history is guaranteed. And if anything, those relevant political connections mean that this show can draw in all kinds of viewers and maybe even teach us a thing or two.
