George R.R. Martin on Trump Victory: "Winter Is Coming. I Told You So"
Published Nov 09, 2016In case you didn't already notice, you can expect a long day of reactions to Donald Trump winning the U.S. presidential election. We've already seen a long list of musicians (for better or worse) taking to social media to tell us how they feel, and now George R.R. Martin has waded into it all with a post bluntly called "President Pussygrabber."
The Game of Thrones creator took to his amazingly archaic Livejournal page to share his feeling on Trump being the next U.S. president, capping it all off with "Winter is coming. I told you so."
While GoT fans will no doubt pick up the reference, they also might be regretting all that whining that winter wasn't coming fast enough. The Wall, of course, just went next level.
Read Martin's full post below:
There are really no words for how I feel this morning.
America has spoken. I really thought we were better than this. Guess not.
Trump was the least qualified candidate ever nominated by a major party for the presidency. Come January, he will become the worst president in American history, and a dangerously unstable player on the world stage.
And the decimated Democrats, a minority in both House and Senate, do not have the power to hinder him.
Over the next four years, our problems are going to get much, much worse.
Winter is coming. I told you so.
