Donald Trump invades Westeros.
A video that features Trump’s head superimposed on “Game of Thrones” characters’ bodies has gone viral since it was released online. The video, titled “Winter is Trumping,” was made by video editor Huw Parkinson and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s politics show “Insiders.”

Vanity Fair notes that the most hilarious part of the clip is the speech of the real estate mogul about building a wall, which coincides with shots of Jon Snow, the Wildlings and the massive Wall north of Castle Black. There is also a scene that shows the US presidential candidate armed with a Valyrian steel sword and ready to embark on a quest through Westeros to impose his border policies.
However, the best part of the parody clip is when Trump’s head is attached to the body of villain Xaro Xhoan Daxos and his policies on immigration, torture and radical Islam lined up perfectly into the HBO hit series. It can be recalled that in season two, Daxos initially denied Daenerys and her entrance to his city.
All of Trump’s audio in the mash-up were excerpts from his actual speeches, ABC News reports.
Meanwhile, the much-awaited “Game of Thrones” season six is set to premiere in April.
A trailer for the season was recently leaked online and it further sparked speculations about Snow’s fate.
The teaser is set in the House of Black and White, headquarters of the Faceless Men and temple of the Many-Faced God. Ned and Catelyn Stark, Jon Snow, Robb, and Joffrey are among the old characters who appear in the Hall of Faces and their voices can be heard in the teaser. Snow can also be heard in the video saying: “The long night is coming and the dead come with it.”
According to Variety, the latest teaser gave some hints on possible game-changing death for one of the series most beloved heroes.
“Game of Thrones” star Natalie Dormer also revealed earlier that “Jon Snow is dead right now” with stress on “right now.”
Although some of the cast members have said he is dead and Snow was not seen in the HBO newly-released promo photos for the upcoming season, there have been several hints that the character played by Kit Harington will be returning in the upcoming season. The actor was spotted several times on the set of the series and HBO also recently released promo poster for the upcoming season that featured Jon Snow himself.
