    although Baracks pose is priceless, the government has to have better photoshop… no shadows at all except for the crossbow which is horrible and ended up on that woman’s pants lmfao

    I don’t think they were trying to make it look believable. It’s supposed to be funny. Which it was.

    Wow…GoT couldn’t get any better advertisement than this. I wonder which room in the WH he uses to practice his crossbow technique?

    Wow. I never thought Grey Worm will take the Throne in the end. I can’t believe they spoiled this.

    GeekFurious,

    I saw this picture yesterday, it has been floating around without the video attached to it. Without the video and seeing the picture in full view its a badly photo-shopped picture that looks like a high school student did it for class. I do think it is funny but that is what I’m commenting on. I thought some random person did it and didn’t even know the government put the photo out until I saw the video.

    Birthers feared Obama was part of a secret plot to put a Kenyan dictator in the White House. Turns it out he was part of a plot to put a Westrosi dictator in the White House all along! Thanks Obama! This plot was so seamlessly done. Varys must have been in on it.

    Saw this earlier:
    https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/recognize-stannis-baratheon-one-true-king-westeros/KTtsMHGx

    We petition the White house to recognize that the Iron throne belongs to Stannis Baratheon by right of birth and blood, as his late brother Robert left no true born heirs.

    STANNIS 2016!

    It IS funny how his whole “The king can do as he likes!” attitude and behavior is apparently completely excusable as long as he makes jokes about how the king can do as he likes.

    Fuck checks and balances and the foundation of the country’s government, for real, right?

    Heh. Unfortunately, these days, all “checks and balances” do is allow pork-barrel line items to be added onto the original bill.

    Putin starts taking over parts of Ukraine: It’s because Obama is so weak! My grandma has bigger balls than Obama!

    Obama does anything at all: Obama is a tyrant! We’re so sick of him ramming his ideology down our throats against the will of the American people! He’s single-handedly destroying freedom all across the country! Down with the emperor!

    Is Cersei running the republican PR machine these days?

    Well, like Joffery, Obama is terrible at his job so it makes sense. The similarities are endless.

    When someone sang about Joffrey, he had his tongue cut out. Considering all you idiots out there with your conspiracy and tyranny nonsense still have your tongues, I’d say you really need to think about what tyranny means. Hint: it isn’t issuing less executive orders than any other modern president.

    All political partisan dick wagging aside: Still funny. Game of Thrones has permeated pop culture. Let’s just enjoy that, shall we?

    After seeing “Obama channels Joffrey” on the vid tag I’m disappointed that its not him slamming his fist down on the podium going “I am the PRESIDENT!”

    No he’s way more like Robb Stark. He rides in to power on during a time of great dissatisfaction of the establishment. His sentiments of hope and change rallies a massive following overnight despite his youth and inexperience. He has a streak of early victories.

    But his progress is slow or static. He fails to keep his promises. He wastes too much time trying to appease opponents who are unwilling to make concessions. At the same he alienates his core supporters and harshly punishes his top aides to pander to his enemies. He uses controversial weapons and surveillance tools in warfare, while unwilling to commit to more theaters of war leading to a stalemate. He keeps his enemies too close.

    Can’t we root for fake political intrigue without being inundated with real politicians and venomous comments? I don’t want politicians around my football viewing, my basketball viewing, my docudramas (Deadliest Catch) or my fantasy genres. Get to work people and stay off my TV.

    ***This PSA brought to you by “Enough Already.” For all those who are fed up real life political BS.

    Thank you and have a nice day. Vote for Pedro.
