He fits in pretty well in Westeros

It's not entirely clear what a country run by Donald Trump might look like. But as Mashable points out, "it's hard to deny just how well the would-be president might fit into the ruthless world of The Seven Kingdoms." See for yourself in a new YouTube video from Huw Parkison of ABC Australia's Insiders program. "Winter is Trumping," spotted by BuzzFeed, drops Trump into scenes from HBO's Game of Thrones where he complains about Pope Francis and smirks at those trapped on the wrong side of The Wall.

An unsympathetic Trump also turns away Daenerys Targaryen and her starving Dothraki followers from Qarth, negotiates with Littlefinger, refuses an order from Jon Snow, and promises to "bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding" if he wins the Iron Throne. In King's Landing, at least, that vow leads to the use of wildfire during the Battle of the Blackwater. The video has been viewed more than 415,000 times in just three days. (Trump admits he needs to act more presidential.)
