“Game of Thrones” can be compared to real life events because of its politically hungry rulers, opponents that are trying to correct all the wrongdoings, and the people that are craving change. The show’s book version “A Song of Ice and Fire,” on which the television series is based, written by George R.R. Martin, definitely tells this kind of story.

In fact, the 68-year-old novelist is now comparing the most hated political figure in the epic fantasy drama to the U.S. President. In Kit Harington’s new profile on Esquire, the short-story writer compared Donald Trump to Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson), the annoying king of the Seven Kingdoms.

Trump seems like the real-life Joffrey

"I think Joffrey is now the king in America," Martin told Esquire. He noticed that the much-hated antagonist is now a fully grown up and has been as bad-tempered and illogical that he is when he is just 13 years old in the book series.

To recall, a lot thought that Joffrey is the eldest son of King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) and Queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). But, he is actually the result of his mother’s infidelity and incestuous relationship with her twin brother Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). When his father died, although he was not yet ready and was too young, he is proclaimed as the Seven Kingdom’s new king.

He can be described as a spoiled brat, narcissistic, arrogant, revengeful, and sadistic. When he became the king, all of these bad traits got worse.

Because of his horrendous ways and acts, he is considered to be the worst villain “Game of Thrones” ever had. Well, that is before Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) entered the picture.

U.S. President Trump, on the other hand, is being compared to the personality of Joffrey. He is also said to be unconstrained, spoiled, and aggressive. Just like the young Baratheon, a lot believed that he too is not yet ready for the responsibility to rule the entire country.

Harington’s take on Trump

Moreover, Harington, who plays the role of Jon Snow in “Game of Thrones,” also has his take on Trump as the new president of the United States. Although he chose not to speak about politics, it just proves that he has no opinion about the 70-year-old business magnate’s ruling in his country.

"Mister Donald Trump,” the 30-year-old actor called the state leader. He explained that he has no intention to call him “President” and will just stick to “Mister” because he thinks the POTUS is “a con artist."
