President Trump may be a fan of Game of Thrones, but the show’s cast certainly doesn’t seem to be too fond of him.

On Friday afternoon, after Trump tweeted a Photoshopped Game of Thrones poster to announce upcoming sanctions he plans to impose against Iran, two stars of the HBO show — close pals Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams — each replied to Trump’s tweet to show their disapproval. 

And even the network pushed back. 

In the very recognizable Game of Thrones font, the words “SANCTIONS ARE COMING” were typed across the image of Trump, along with the date, November 5.

To that, Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on the show simply replied, “Ew.”

Williams, who plays Arya Stark in the series, gave a strict, “Not today.”

And HBO brought the fire, questioning how to say “trademark misuse” in Dothraki — the fictional language from George R. R. Martin’s fantasy novel series on which the show is based.

Trump’s tweet got the meme treatment from all different angles today, and honestly, it’s still unknown whether he’s actually ever seen an episode of the HBO medieval fantasy or not.

Whether he’s a true fan or simply trying to try his hand at the meme game, it’s clear not many people appreciated him using the lighthearted reference to discuss such a serious topic.
