Have you ever wondered who would be a worse ruler, Donald Trump or Joffrey Baratheon? Even by Westeros standards, Trump is pretty divisive, made obvious by Youtube magician Huw Parkinson in his latest spoof video.
In a near perfect mashup of Donald Trump and “Game of Thrones,” two political worlds come together in a two-and-a-half-minute video of pure hilarity. As Parkinson tweets, it is truly “a song of ice and … fired.”
In the video, Trump’s head has been seamless edited into certain “Game of Thrones” scenes, allowing him to hold conversations with Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and other popular Westerosi players.
His anti-immigration policy rhetoric perfectly matches up against Daenerys begging for her people to be let into the city of Qarth. Her begging is met with Trump’s refusal as he says, “I said temporarily, I didn’t say permanently.”
Similarly, Trump’s speech about a wall built on the Mexican border is delivered from atop The Wall, as wildlings flock to the gates, trying to get in. “We have no border, we have no control,” Trump preaches to the Night’s Watch. “People are flooding across. We need to build a wall.”
“Game of Thrones” returns Sunday, April 24 on HBO, while the 2016 presidential election trudges on until Tuesday, Nov. 8.
