Stephen Colbert talks Barack Obama Game of Thrones quotes

Posted on

Stephen Colbert has some issues with President Barack Obama, and the Late Show host believes it’s time for the president to answer for his political blindspot — because all of Westeros may hang in the balance.

Colbert went on a hilarious rant on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, referencing the president’s recent comments about loving Game of Thrones, but not being able to remember the names or lineage of its expansive cast of characters. (The only character Obama seems to know by heart is Jon Snow.)

“How can you survive in the geopolitical chess game if you can’t tell the difference between Tyrion, House Lannister and, say, Jorah Mormont, son of Jeor Mormont of the House Mormont, lords of Bear Island and the vassals of House Stark in the North? You’re asleep at the wheel, Mr. President,” Colbert said.

Watch his full rant below, as Colbert pleads for Obama to bring peace to the Seven Kingdoms.
