Author George RR Martin has shared a scathing blog post in response to the recent US election result. The genius behind the successful ‘Game of Thrones’ franchise, labelled president elect Donald Trump a “dangerously unstable player on the world stage.”
Trump’s victory has completely divided the United States over the last couple of days, with many Americans feeling thoroughly outraged that the billionaire television star is to be their chosen representative.
The election result has drawn numerous comparisons with ‘brexit’, in the sense that a silent majority has decided the fate of the country, despite hundreds of media figureheads and influential celebrities attempting to swing the vote in Hillary Clinton’s favour.
On his popular blog ‘Not A Blog’, Martin posted what will no doubt become one of the most controversial statements of his literary career.
Here is the post titled ‘President Pussygrabber’ in full:
“There are really no words for how I feel this morning,”
He continued: “America has spoken. I really thought we were better than this. Guess not. Trump was the least qualified candidate ever nominated by a major party for the presidency. Come January, he will become the worst president in American history, and a dangerously unstable player on the world stage.”
“And the decimated Democrats, a minority in both House and Senate, do not have the power to hinder him. Over the next four years, our problems are going to get much, much worse.”
“Winter is coming. I told you so.”
