George RR Martin has invented his fair share of political intrigue in his Song Of Ice And Fire book series, of course the basis for HBO’s Emmy juggernaut Game Of Thrones. But apparently he can’t conceive Donald Trump being elected the next U.S. President. He sounded off last night on LiveJournal.com with an attention (among other things)-grabbing headline and his thoughts just got bleaker from there:
There are really no words for how I feel this morning.
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.
