today I learned that alt-right pizzagater Jack Posobiec wrote Game of Thrones fan fiction about Donald Trump and a teen aged Sansa Stark falling in love Politics Entertainment LGBTO Opinion Drugs Sticky Travel For the majority of his time, Posobiec did not mix his politics with GoT blogging except for one moment in 2015 when his politics collided with his blog through the sweetest of all mediums, fan fiction. In his tale "The Lady and the Trump," he introduced hls favourite politiclan, Donald Trump, into his favourite universe, Westeros The first time Donald Trump locked eyes with her, he built a tower straight t Sansa's heart, reads the opening line. (Editor's note: Sansa is a teenager Posobiec explained that he wrote the piece because he thought it was funny and that he saw parallels between America's political reality and Game of Thrones (sadly, while both feature childish kings, only one features dragons). The Lady and the Trump seemed to be a one-off for Posobiec and he has since made the page unavailable (even through the Internet Archlve).
