If last night’s bleak election results make America seem like Game of Thrones’s Westeros to you, George R.R. Martin himself agrees. In a blog post titled “President Pussygrabber,” Martin briefly reflected on Donald Trump’s victory on his blog. “America has spoken,” Martin wrote. “I really thought we were better than this. Guess not.” The author argues that Trump is the “least qualified candidate ever nominated by a major party” and that the Democrats, a minority in the House and Senate, will have limited means at their disposal to oppose him. “Over the next four years, our problems are going to get much, much worse,” Martin concludes, signing off with just the words you’d expect him to use: “Winter is coming. I told you so.”
