Game of Thrones has quite a lot in common with the real world, and lately it has been becoming more and more obvious. The show is largely about ugly politics and power games, and it seems like our talk shows just can’t stop drawing parallels between the Trump era and Game of Thrones. Talk show host Trevor Noah recently talked about the exact same thing. Read on!
A new report by Click on Detroit about a CNN interview with Trevor Noah, the host of The Daily Show, which airs on Comedy Central, in which he talked about how he was never going to get tired of reporting Trump stories. He said :
“I think the first mistake people make is that they think of it as a Trump story; I don’t. I think of it as the American story, and Donald Trump is one of the characters in the American story.”
He then explained his elaborate point with a simple analogy, saying :
“If this was ‘Game of Thrones,’ Donald Trump would be the White Walkers.”
He went on to explain exactly how it was so :
“Everyone is going to be dealing with it, but it’s not the story of the White Walkers. We want to know what Daenerys is going through, we want to know what’s happening with the Lannisters. We want to know what’s going on with the Starks. That’s the story, and everyone is going to deal with this force that is coming for them.”
We can’t really blame him, or any other talk show host for that matter. The audience of about almost every talk show has considerably grown since Donald Trump won the elections. The Daily Show itself grew 36 percent. After all, they will talk about the things people want them to talk about.
What did you think about the comparison? We sure do like it much better than that time Seth Meyers compared Arya Stark to Hillary Clinton. What about you? Talk to us in the comments, below!
