HBO takes immediate action after Trump's Game of Thrones tweet

Game of Thrones FINAL The actor revealed the final scenes were'perfect

On Twitter Thursday morning, before the rest of the world could even read special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation report, President Donald Trump used a Game of Thrones-inspired meme to crow about the "haters" and "radical" Democrats who in his view had been proven wrong.

Details have emerged about how the Chinese Government has censored Game of Thrones in the country, and it sounds like it makes the show unwatchable.

Winter is here, for broadcasters of Game of Thrones at least: the eighth and final season of the TV fantasy epic has arrived, and global media owners are striving to engage local audiences with advertising and experiential marketing.

The Trump administration have been awaiting Mueller's investigation report into Russia's interference in the 2016 USA presidential election which tilted in Trump's favour.

While Trump went on to use the "Game of Thrones" twist, the same was done in India amidst the ongoing Lok Sabha election season. "No collusion. For the haters and the radical left Democrats-Game Over". Its overlaid text, in a very Thrones-y font, read, "No collusion". And soon afterward, President Trump took to Twitter with a response - though perhaps not the sort of response many would have expected.

HBO's epic fantasy drama based on George R.R. Martin's novel series "A Song of Fire and Ice".

For its part, HBO reiterated its concerns about use of its trademark - though it didn't threaten further action.

HBO has always had to fight off pirates of its hit Game of Thrones and with its recent season 8 premiere, analytics company MUSO says the premiere was pirated close to 55 million times in its first day.
