HBO to Trump: Stop tweeting about ‘Game of Thrones’

Game of Thrones HBO Trump

Donald Trump may be a Game of Thrones fan, but the feeling isn’t mutual.

On Thursday, after the president tweeted yet another bizarre reference to the HBO show ahead of the Mueller report drop, the network requested he stop using the show for his own personal agenda.

An HBO rep told Mashable, “Though we can understand the enthusiasm for Game of Thrones now that the final season has arrived, we still prefer our intellectual property not be used for political purposes.”

The tweet, latest Game of Thrones themed tweet read, “No collusion. No obstruction. For the haters and the radical left Democrats — GAME OVER,” and used HBO’s classic font.

Trump has tweeted several similar Game of Thrones images in the past to announce Iran sanctions and declare the construction of the border, leading HBO and several Game of Thrones stars, such as Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams, to publicly show their disapproval

HBO has publicly condemned Trump’s references to the show before, and even called him out on Twitter for possible “trademark misuse.”
