Game of Thrones may feature dragons, three-eyed ravens, and an army of the dead, but the bulk of what goes on in the series is political in nature. The battle among a handful of noble houses for control over the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros — the titular "game of thrones" — has far more to do with the show's popularity than its more fantastical elements. That may be because of the show's parallels to today, since many political Game of Thrones Season 7 quotes sound like they're actually about 2017 politics in the U.S.
Obviously, 2017 is a strange time for U.S. politics. Donald Trump, a former reality star and six-time bankrupt businessman, is currently the president, and it has been a wild ride to say the least. As president, Trump has waged war against the media and facts, he's currently under special counsel investigation for alleged obstruction of justice and collusion with Russia to win the 2016 election, and his supporters are constantly forced to defend him in light of new scandals he creates for himself (defending neo-Nazis, banning transgender people from serving in the military, hinting at dropping a nuclear bomb on North Korea, etc.). So take a look below at the following quotes from Game of Thrones Season 7 and just be thankful that we don't have to deal with white walkers in addition to Trump.
