Donald Trump put his Roy Cohenesque Attorney General William Barr in front of the cameras in a final roll out before the Mueller report hit Congress and America. The AG mentioned “no collusion” at least half a dozen times, and his basic argument was that Trump was frustrated and angry. Imagine a bank robber’s defense, “But Judge, I was having a bad day. I was frustrated and really angry.” Trump could not resist giving his so-called enemies a kick below the belt in a pre-holiday tweet.
POTUS ripped off HBO’s Game of Thrones familiar image for his last thumb in Congress’ eyes. The problem is the House’s dire wolves are loose: Intelligence Committee Chair Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), Judicial Committee Chair Representative Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Financial Services Committee Chair Maxine Waters (D-CA), and the biggest badest dire wolf of all, Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Trump tweeted “NO COLLUSION. NO OBSTRUCTION…GAME OVER:”
‘NO COLLUSION. NO OBSTRUCTION. FOR THE HATERS AND THE RADICAL LEFT DEMOCRATS — GAME OVER’
Earlier, POTUS ripped off another Thrones poster saying “Sanctions Are Coming.” HBO’s EVP and head of marketing Chris Spadaccini said, according to the Variety magazine:
‘Our attitude was we don’t really like our IP to be used for political purposes.’
‘It’s is such a cultural phenomenon that brands are going to be out there culture jacking “Game of Thrones,..” the marketing exec seemed a bit shocked that, “Trump got in on the action.'”
‘We didn’t want to pick a fight with the president. I gave my social team a lot credit because they had a very snarky little subtweet that said, “How do you say trademark infringement in Dothraki?”And that got a lot of press coverage.’
