If you were worried that the comedic potential of Anthony Scaramucci ended when he was forced out of his post as White House communications director, stop worrying. The Mooch tweeted a cryptic Jon Snow quote on Sunday night, and it basically lit Twitter on fire. Even better than the tweet, though, were the Twitter reactions to Scaramucci's Game of Thrones tweet.
People have strong feelings about Scaramucci, apparently, but even stronger feelings about Game of Thrones and Jon Snow — but then again, who wouldn't? If you've been watching since the beginning, Jon Snow is basically the most principled character in the entire show. The one character who has never yet been willing to manipulate and murder his way to the top. A character who has, to be sure, seen and participated in his share of violence, but who has overwhelmingly decided to act in whichever way he thinks will most benefit the people in his charge, no matter how it affects him. Jon Snow has never made a decision out of a desire to be popular, and he even ended up getting stabbed to death for it at the end of Season 5.
