The Wall and Castle Black
Campaign poster, tweets and other allusions; the American President shows himself in a photomontage with the Game of Thrones colors to announce the upcoming construction of his Mexican border wall.

Like the CEO of IOI, Nolan Sorrento in Ready Player One, the billionaire should have mingled with some pop culture fans before launching this totally flopped publicity campaign.
Indeed, spoiler alert, at the end of the last season of Game of Thrones, the famous wall separating
The Seven Kingdoms and the wild and frozen lands beyond, was entirely destroyed. The Night King, accompanied by his dragon Viserion took on the job of reducing the gigantic barrier to smithereens. Its destruction thus allowed the Army of the Dead to cross onto the continent.
Numerous tweetos dutifully reminded the President of these facts.

But I guess nobody told him what ends up happening to the wall.
…maybe #SpeakerPelosi will help him out with that.

In addition to these baffled references, Donald Trump was called to order by HBO for using a registered trademark for personal purposes without advising the channel, owner of the rights, for the second time in his mandate. A campaign that would have been better off walled in silence.
