President Donald Trump sent out a single tweet just as U.S. Attorney General William Barr finished his press conference on the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion.
In a “Game of Thrones” style meme, Trump is seen with his back turned. “No collusion. No obstruction,” the image says. “For the haters and the radical left Democrats — Game over.”
In response to the Tweet, HBO said in a statement, “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,” Yahoo News reports.
Trump has used “Game of Thrones”-style memes in tweets before, including a November tweet that read “Sanctions are coming” and another in January that said, “The wall is coming.” Both earlier tweets used similar imagery and font to the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones.”
Responding to Trump’s November tweet, HBO said on Twitter, “How do you say trademark misuse in Dothraki?”
