Talk show host Trevor Noah compares Trump's presidency to Game of Thrones

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!

Hilarious deepfake video shows Jon Snow apologizing for Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones Season 8 was the world received season of the show. The fans are still complaining about the bad writing, while others are busy criticizing those that are hating on the final season. Among all the noise, one fan got creative and made a hilarious deepfake video of Jon Snow apologising for Season 8. Read on!

YouTuber Eating Things put out the video, and it has quickly gone viral, getting nearly 2 million views at the time of writing this article. The video shows the funeral speech that Jon Snow gives after the Battle of Winterfell, but deepfaked into an apology for Season 8. Check it out:

The fans have been waiting for such an apology from the showrunners, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, but we don’t think that’s happening anytime soon. For now, this should do.

Jimmy Kimmel gives Jaime Lannister his own spin-off with Full House

Game of Thrones is over, but we still have those prequel spin-off shows coming up. However, there’s a catch, these shows won’t star any of the actors from Game of Thrones. However, Jimmy Kimmel has his own solution for this, and he has done that by putting Jaime Lannister in the Full House universe. Read on!

Full House, for those that don’t know, was a popular sitcom that ran from 1987 to 1995, starring legendary actors like Bob Saget, Dave Coulier and John Stamos. This spin-off skit that debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! has Jaime Lannister join the Full House family, replacing John Stamos’ Uncle Jessie, with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s Uncle Jaime. Called Full House Lannister, this wouldn’t be a bad spin-off for Jaime, definitely better than dying with Cersei was:

Cut. It. Off. Hilarious. Anybody who loved Full House and Game of Thrones will definitely love this one. On a related note, it would be great if Netflix’s sequel of Full House, called Fuller House, could bring Nikolaj in for a guest role.

Game of Thrones fans react to Bran Stark becoming King

Game of Thrones has always been about who ends up on the Iron Throne, and in the series finale — Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we got to see the Iron Throne melted down by Dragon fire.

However, we did get a new ruler for Westeros, one who was selected by all the important lords and ladies of Westeros — Bran Stark. This came out of nowhere for most fans of the show, who were expecting Jon Snow or Daenerys Targaryen to end up on the throne. The fans took to Twitter with a variety of reactions:
