It looked like President Donald Trump may have had some indirect connection to the record breaking final episode of Game of Thrones on Sunday. This was reflected in the scene where Jon Snow defended his action not to lie to Cersei about his allegiance to Daenerys.

Liam Cunningham, who played the Onion Knight, Ser Davos Seaworth, told Variety in an interview that the show filmed the scene with Kit Harington the morning after Donald Trump won the US presidential election.

Cunningham said, “That speech that Jon Snow gave about the nature of lies…we filmed that on exactly the day that a certain POTUS was elected and it had incredible resonance while we were filming it.”

Lies won’t help us in this fight

In the episode "The Dragon and the Wolf," Cersei Lannister agreed to the truce but demanded that the King in North remains neutral in the war for the Iron Throne.

However, Jon Snow told Cersei he already pledged his loyalty to Queen Daenerys of House Targaryen. Cersei backed away from her earlier promise and walked out of the summit.

"We will deal later with what’s left of you," Cersei angrily told Jon Snow as she stormed back to the Red Keep.

Meanwhile, Jon’s allies were either in admiration of Jon’s unwavering adherence to his honor or aghast by his inability to tell a little bit of lie in order to obtain the crucial truce they desperately need.

Daenerys and Tyrion, however, were never ambivalent about their displeasure of Jon for scuttling their plea for an armistice. The Mother of Dragons furiously told his now confirmed nephew, lover, and loyal subject that Viserion’s death was all for nothing.

Jon Snow defended his action by telling them that he will not swear an oath he cannot uphold. Then he went to say when “…people makes false promises words stop meaning anything. Then there are no more answers only better and better lies…lies won’t help us in this fight.”

This was the speech Cunningham was referring to. He said Kit Harrington rehearsed and filmed the scene the morning of Trump’s shocking defeat of Hillary Clinton.

The smooth talking former smuggler from Flea Bottom said, “…it had a certain resonance, I’m sure you’ll understand.”

The Mooch tweeted Jon Snow

Even the controversial former White House Communications Director Anthony “the Mooch” Scaramucci, who was fired after just 10 days in his post, picked up Jon Snow’s line and posted it on Twitter.

He may be hoping his former boss would read it.
