The Targaryen who thinks he’s a Stark and a climate expert told TIME magazine:
The one irony I found this year, it was a very sad irony: We went to Iceland to find snow, because winter is here. We got there and we were lucky to get the snow we did, because in our world, winter is definitely not here. It’s this weird parallel the opposite parallel. We go out there this year, and the glacier that me and Rose [Leslie] filmed on four years ago, I saw it and it has shrunk. I saw climate change and global warming with my own eyes, and it is terrifying.
They have to ruin everything with politics?
Even some libs agree this was too much:

But, alas … these takes will keep coming with the fire of a thousand wildfire pots:
The GOP is probably gonna use the #WinterIsHere hashtag to prove global warming doesn't exist.

And there’s this flashback that even hotter than wildfire. This is Drogon-level en fuego:
Game of Thrones is secretly all about climate change: http://t.co/c65EtlQppE

And this year it’s being predicted that the famous Wall with fail, like all border walls, right libs? Nick Pappas predicts the next liberal hot take:
It's actually about how border walls always fail eventually. Hey, I could do these pieces for a living!

We don’t know about winter being here, but liberal lunacy has certainly arrived.
