It takes a lot to get a rise out of George R.R. Martin. After all, he created some of literature’s greatest monsters, including Joffrey Baratheon and Ramsay Bolton. But after one too many The Wall/Build the Wall comparisons, the A Song of Ice and Fire author could keep quiet no longer, and listed all the ways Donald Trump offended him. “In my lifetime,” he wrote, “there has never been a presidential candidate more unfit to lead this nation.” And now that Trump has been elected the 45th president of the United States, Martin, who updated his blog with a quick post, has “no words for how I feel this morning.”
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.

If there’s a new villain character in The Winds of Winter named Tonald Drump, I think we’ll all know who it’s inspired by.
