Trump is quickly claiming an undeserved victory yet again in the wake of the release of Special Counsel Mueller’s heavily redacted report this morning. In an act of celebration, Trump tweeted a meme this afternoon of himself with a Game of Thrones themes featuring the worlds, “No Collusion. No Obstruction” For the haters and the radical left Democrats —” with “Game Over” spread across the picture — written in a font strikingly similar to that used by the HBO hit series.
HBO quickly released a statement denouncing the president’s use of their material:
“Though we can understand the enthusiasm for Game of Thrones now that the final season has arrived, we still prefer our intellectual property not be used for political purposes.”
This isn’t the first time that Trump has been reprimanded over using copyrighted material that he did not have permission for. HBO was irked back in November and sent out a similar statement when Trump tweeted “Sanctions are coming” in reference to impending sanctions on Iran — a statement that was clearly a knockoff of GOT’s “Winter is coming” line. Trump was again chastised for illegal use of copyrighted materials earlier this month when Warner Brothers submitted a copyright infringement complaint in regards to a 2020 campaign video that featured a soundtrack from the Dark Night Rises.
To top off Trump’s bizarre marking of his perceived victory, he tweeted a ridiculous video this afternoon with the caption, “As I have been saying all along, NO COLLUSION – NO OBSTRUCTION!”

Trump is obviously completely unconcerned of the fact that Mueller’s report, even in just the small amounts we are able to see, said pretty much the opposite. In fact, the report actually states that Mueller’s team found “numerous links” between the Kremlin, Donald Trump, and Trump associates.
But yeah, okay there, Trump. Just quit mooching people’s shit when you don’t have permission, okay?
