HBO not pleased with Trump's 'Game of Thrones'-inspired meme

President Donald Trump unknowingly unleashed a storm of swords today, when he (mis) appropriated the Game of Thrones logo to use in one of his partisan-laced political tweets.

HBO's official account responded with a tweet referring to one of the show's fictional languages, writing, "How do you say trademark misuse in Dothraki?" The words are styled in a font clearly drawn from Game of Thrones branding, which makes it obvious that the phrasing comes from "Winter Is Coming", the words of House Stark and one of the show's most memorable refrains.
