Al Gore is just like us, you guys. He watches Game of Thrones too!
You didn’t see this last night because it was on MSNBC, but Cameron Cawthorne at the Washington Free Beacon watched it so you didn’t have to:
“…The president has been isolating himself from the rest of the country… Last week, somebody said, was like the Red Wedding in Game of Thrones, with people coming and going and ‘I’m going to fire everybody.'”
If you don’t watch that show, the Red Wedding was a dramatic scene in the third season where several of the main characters were lured to a big wedding, and were then [SPOILER!] locked in a room and butchered like animals. Whether or not it’s an apt comparison to recent events at the White House, at least it’s not a Harry Potter reference.
Speaking of the weird ways that presidential politics and pop culture can reflect each other, remember what happened to Al Gore back in 2000?
Well, that’s what happens when you go up against the son of a powerful leader. Don’t mess with Westeros!
It’s just too bad Al missed the most important message of GoT: Winter is coming. You’d think he’d get it by now, considering he brings cold weather with him wherever he goes. He’s like a White Walker, without all the personality.
