Donald Trump Evokes Game of Thrones on Twitter, Draws Rebuke from HBO

Donald Trump just ruined Game of Thrones.

No, the President didn’t reveal any final season spoilers, although we’re pretty sure he wouldn’t hesitate to do so if it somehow meant Republicans would keep the House on Tuesday.

But he did go ahead and use the show’s iconic tagline on Twitter today, making sure no one can ever think of it again without also thinking of our racist Commander-in-Chief.

Here’s what we’re talking about:

Game of Thrones arrived on the television scene in the summer of 2011 by warning its viewers that “Winter is Coming.”

This was a nod to the dangerous White Walkers and how they would eventually breach The Wall and kill pretty much every human alive.

(Don’t ask. Just Google or, better yet, go catch up Game of Thrones before it returns in mid-2019 at some point. The show is really good.)

No three words are more associated with the most popular show of its era than these three. Winter is Coming.

So… what did Trump just write on Twitter? In the legendary font of the iconic HBO drama?

Sanctions are Coming.

Donald Trump got

Most folks clued in to the political arena think this is a reference to sanctions against Iraq.

And while many experts on the topic seem to believe this is a terrible idea, we’re not here to get into a complicated political debate.

(Except to say that maybe the President of the United States should not treat such a significant idea/step as a game or a joke.)

We are here, however, to simply say:

Come on, Mr. President!

To paraphrase critics of athletes who bring up social issues, can’t you stick to politics?

HBO agrees with this assessment.

The network has issued a brief statement in response to Trump’s use of its show’s tagline and font. It reads:

We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes.

It has also Tweeted, hilariously, “How do you say trademark misuse in Dothraki?”

And star Maisie Williams, who plays wildly popular character Arya, also expressed her disdain on social media:

not today

Game of Thrones Season 8 will be comprised of just six episodes.

However, each will be movie-length, around 90 minutes if not more, many sources have confirmed.

But that isn’t the point right now.

The point is that Trump has already made it difficult to enjoy professional football and Twitter and ensured that we’ll never refer to our soccer game carpools as “caravans” ever again.

Did he really need to go ahead and link himself to Game of Thrones as well?


Cardi B and Nicki Minaj Feud: Twitter and The Maury Show Pick Sides!

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj are feuding. It's intense, but at least nobody's throwing shoes anymore.

Cardi claims that she passed over working with artists like Little Mix, and that Nicki is essentially getting her leftovers.

Nicki's stans believe Nicki, Cardi's stans believe Cardi, and most people are just enjoying watching the two fight.

After Cardi ranted and raved and invited Nicki to physically fight, Nicki had a counter-proposal.

Nicki said that Cardi doesn't write her own lyrics … and "offered" for them to both take lie detector tests to prove it.

Naturally, as soon as someone mentioned that, The Maury Show had to weigh in.

Twitter is losing their minds over this whole beef. Take a look.

1. Nicki calls for peace

As you will see, some applauded her appeal to reason. Others weren’t buying it.

2. Did someone say "lie detector?"

Nicki minaj vs cardi b twitter beef reactions 02
The Maury Show is famous for their love of texts and then revealing the results after a lot of dramatic build-up.

3. Maury got some replies

Nicki minaj vs cardi b twitter beef reactions 03
One person was Team Nicki, another was Team Cardi, and another was just there to enjoy the feud. That more or less sums up Twitter’s reaction to this whole thing.

4. Someone is betting on Cardi

Nicki minaj vs cardi b twitter beef reactions 04
This fight sequence is one hell of an illustration of how this person imagines that the fight would go down

5. Team Cardi spoke out

Nicki minaj vs cardi b twitter beef reactions 05
From their point of view, Cardi had come with plenty of receipts — in addition to her hot-headed threats.

6. Some Cardi fans think Nicki is envious

We’re leery of cherry-picked lists, but it’s clear that these two very talented women do not get along

Meghan Markle Reveals Baby Gender… According to Twitter

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are having a baby.

You probably already knew this.

But the public does NOT yet know whether the Royals are expecting a boy or a girl.

This information was not included in the official statement by Kensington Palace that confirmed the major news.

However, a handful of astute (and/or possibly misguided) Internet users think they have cracked the gender code. They think Markle revealed the sex of her impending child via the color of the dress she wore for a state dinner in Fiji.

No, really. They think this.

Scroll down to see the gown in question, along with these excited responses to it…

1. Wearing Blue

Internet users really are convinced that Markle is wearing this color dress as a way to tell the world the gender of her impending child.

3. Boom! It’s a Boy!

Boom its a boy
Why else would Markle wear blue, right?!?

4. She’s Carrying a Boy!

Shes carrying a boy
That’s it. Twitter is convinced.

5. Yes. We All Know This…

Yes we all know this
… but we’re here to blindly guess the gender, okay?!?

6. Here’s the Thing, Though:

Meghan markle is pregnant
Markle and her famous husband were attendinga reception and State Dinner hosted by Jioji Konrote, the President of Fiji. This marked the latest stop on the couple’s tour of the Commonwealth — and it would have been a very odd time to announce a gender in such passive fashion.

Wait… Snow White?!? In what context? Why?

1. What is Going on Here?!?

The beloved voice of Anna in Frozen, Bell spoke to Parents Magazine for its latest issue and explained how she cherishes her ritual of reading bedtime stories with her girls, saying that she wants to “feed their brain.” Fair enough, right?

2. She Expounded as Follows:

Bell kristen
“Every time we close Snow White I look at my girls and ask, ‘Don’t you think it’s weird that Snow White didn’t ask the old witch why she needed to eat the apple? Or where she got that apple?’ I say, ‘I would never take food from a stranger, would you?’ And my kids are like, ‘No!’ And I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m doing something right.'”

3. Sounds Great, Right?

Bell is using this fairy tale to teach her young kids, ages three and five, valuable life lessons. Is that not what they are for?

4. But This is Where Bell Gets Into Trouble… with Some

She said she asks them, “Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission? Because you cannot kiss someone if they’re sleeping!”

5. Did Bell Just Take the #MeToo Movement Too Far?

Must we really analyze such aspects in a children’s story? Many folks on Twitter think Bell is basically being too “woke” for her own good here.

Nathan Griffith’s Friend OWNS David Eason on Twitter: I Banged Jenelle, Bruh!

It's been eight months since David Eason was fired from Teen Mom 2 as a result of his bigoted views and hateful slurs.

Unfortunately, this is 2018, a time when everyone has a platform — which means Dave still has a way to reach out to his fellow racists and homophobes.

Fortunately, for every idiot who pipes up in support of Eason's idiocy, there are a few thousand who are happy to condemn it — and it turns out some of them have some pretty specific shade to throw at reality TV's least favorite house husband:


1. Mr. Evans

David eason eff you
Jenelle’s been the primary breadwinner in her household for the better part of a year now, so it stands to reason that David is starting to get very bored.

2. Haters Gonna Hate

David eason allergic to shirts
Yes folks, a hater with too much time on his hands is a very dangerous thing, and David has found a very sad way of keeping himself occupied.

3. Straight Pride

David eason straight pride meme
In case you weren’t aware, David is proud to be a straight white man. Like, really proud. Like, it’s pretty much all he talks about.

4. To Be Fair …

David eason picture
Okay, it’s not ALL he talks about. David also enjoys taking shots at Jenelle Evans’ exes, all of whom seem to be a source of major insecurity for him.

5. Relax, Dave

Kieffer delp and jenelle evans
Sources say Eason was so upset about an MTV special focusing on Jenelle’s relationships with exes like Kieffer Delp that he briefly broke things off with his wife.

6. The New Target

David eason on insta
Of course, these days, David focuses most of his energy on hating a much more recent ex of Jenelle’s …

Wheel of Fortune Contestant Nearly Ends Twitter with NSFW Guess

Welp, this was a different kind of Wheel of Fortune guess.

We've shared in the past some of the worst puzzle responses of all-time (such as THIS ONE), but the one featured on this page is really unlike any in game show history.

During a round of “same name,” Melanie Sinany looked at a nearly-completely board and proudly announced her guess for what was supposed to be “bridal & cold shower."


You would have said that if you saw the puzzle above, wouldn't you?

However, Sinany said Gold Shower instead, causing quite the uproar within the studio and across social media.

Host Pat Sajak simply uttered a “sorry” after this failed guess, while Vanna White stood at the board looking stunned.

(For those innocent and unaware, a golden shower is when one sexual partner urinates on the other. Ask our President about it. He'll explain.)

“A woman on Wheel of Fortune just guessed ‘GOLD’ for the part of the phrase ‘COLD SHOWER’ and I’ve never regretted failing to capture something on my phone more,” one Twitter user wrote in reply to this mishap.

Added another:

“Idk how many times I hit rewind bc I was laughing soo hard and the camera was shaking."

Another chimed in as follows:

"#goldshower And just like that, Awkward Moment on @wheeloffortune and YouTube fame for Melanie after guessing Gold Shower.

"I wonder if Pat will say anything about it at the end of the game. Poker faces from Pat and Vanna were priceless."

And another:

"I feel blessed that I caught this magical Wheel of Fortune moment just now.”
