Winter has come.
Fans of fantasy phenomenon, ‘Game of Thrones,’ have learned the hard way that even their favourite characters aren’t safe. And while the devoted followers knew that the showrunners would be aiming to make waves with the premiere of the final season, nothing could have prepared fans for this.
In the opening moments of the episode, the characters were all congregating at Winterfell. Out of nowhere, 37-year old Mayor of South Bend, Indiana and 2020 Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg wandered into frame.
‘Morning guys,’ Mayor Pete said to the gang as he grasped Jon Snow warmly on the shoulder. ‘I’m Pete and I’m running for President.’
Oh shit. Viewers were immediately concerned for the millennial war veteran whose husband Chasten is an emerging social media sensation. Surely the showrunners wouldn’t introduce a character this likeable and conscious of climate change because he has to consider what the world will be like in the year 2054 (the year he reaches the current age of the current President) if they didn’t have grave ideas in mind.
Indeed, Mayor Pete had barely begun outlining his reforms to the Supreme Court to Bran when a big stinky Republican white walker (yeah, you bet he’s white) rode into Winterfell on an electoral minority and stabbed gay progressive Pete in the heart – a big target, we’ll concede!
That white walker’s name: Donald Drumpy Dump. President of the United HATES of America.
TV is a distraction. Rise. Fight. Resist.
We can win. We have an army of the dead – they’re in The White House.
And the scariest part?
