Trump like Jon Snow a hero.
trump is not the character portrayed by the media...he's no more dangerous than Hillary or obama
The comment section here is all the evidence anyone should ever need to know that conservatives and libertarians are total morons.
all these butt hurt trump/ GRR fan c*nts talking about 'her laugh' are just trying to distract from the fact GRR thinks you guys are nuts. Nice try assholes
He hates trump all you need to know like all liberals
its funny that everyone in the hollywood has the same argument against trump. tho, thats the point of political, everyone has the same talking point and alternative opinion often got bury amongst all the "popular opinion"just like when kommandos who say" i will givr up my guns until all babys are dead."
Trump is Joffery Baratheon.Joffery Baratheon is more mature than him
2.2 million more people vote for the other person, yet Trump becomes President? Stupid system. Next liberal President needs to destroy the electoral. It was invented when the US population was 19 people.
‘Mostly women and children’ you would be surprised to find most are men. George has s very naive view of politics today that’s for sure.
America is not built on Immigration. Thats something people want to believe because of a few success stories in the 20th century.
"Refugees are mostly women and men. " That's really funny.
I don't like his political views because they are anti-trump but because they are anti-liberty and anti-American. It like he is reciting the communist liberal leftist handbook. What a big disappointment.
The wicked witch of the west laughed less demonic then this bitch.
You have a saying that sometimes the book(s) is smarter then the writer. I agree with that, because that's the case with GRRM.
Funny that he doesn't want a wall, but the wall is keeping the white walkers out. Some people are a living contradiction.
I think, Trump is Targaryen
I love how he has a wall in his story that keeps out the white walkers yet he says trump having a wall to keep out illegal immirgrants, drug dealers, and murderers is stupid. I’m a trump supporter in case u were all wondering
There’s also a lot of rape in his story but he isn’t in support of that
Why is he talking about how good imigranfs are for society? He realizes we support legal immigrants are welcomed and supported by us right? And we also want illegals of other nationalities deported too right? He's making good points against a non existent opponents. We disagree with you liberals on open borders. Of course we want legal immigrants coming in why is he saying illegak immigrants are good for economy..
I agree about the concept of immigration. However, without the rule of law the country would be and is in anarchy.... bring your self to America... legally!!!!
The economy is outstanding, George. Elect a dim and watch it all come crashing down.

George is smart but not politically, same with many people, I could take on George rr Martin in a debate about politics and win, yet if it was on something like history he’d destroy me. I think people should take all opinions with a grain of salt, do research by yourself and you’ll realise they’re doing more crime per person etc. George believes all people have good, which is true, yet he thinks Mexicans will be fine if no one is racist and they’re nice, no, they’ll rape and kill (some will) but 1 person could take the lives of 5 food people easily. George has no clue what he’s talking about.
They try to stop the winning, but they can't.
Difference is, those that immigrated at Ellis Island (read statue of liberty) were LEGALLY allowed into the country, not sneaking in taking taxpayer benefits without the burden of paying taxes themselves.
When they both laugh and both have weird laughs
Guys, AFFC-ADWD have three immigrants crisis (the sparrows, wildlings and astaporis). Of course GRRM he's gonna have strong feelings about it.
That laugh gave me nightmares
GRR M should not kiss ass of "we have a dream" people.
What a fat fuck
Actually, i'm a little surprised by how deep anti-Trump hate is. By hearing his haters, you would be lead to believe he's gonna force all immigrants into camps, all women into kitchens, and wage war to the entire world. Actually, he isn't doing any of these. He recently STARTED A WORLD CAMPAIGN FOR DE-PENALIZATION OF HOMOSEXUALITY. He made an agreement with Mexico for immigrants, made many agreements with other countries for trade, using duties as a lever. Oh, and he relaunched the economiy MASSIVELY by cutting the taxes, and unemployement is at its lowest ever. People are actually hating him...WHAT FOR???
Martin is a smart dude. He works closely with Democrat controlled areas of show business and understands that if he doesn't say all the right things they will blacklist him and won't print his books. Notice how he didn't say anything new, merely repeated required talking points. He probably doesn't care, but doesn't want to stop working and fail his fans, so he goes along with it.
@HE1NZ hm, interesting viewpoint. I found his inclusion of a dwarf as one of the most sympathetic characters (at least, for the first three books) to be fairly progressive, but I guess you can't really write based on the middle ages without it reflecting older ways.
@Waldo Does Games Well, his novels are not pipe dreams about diversity and inclusivity. They are very conservative in that some people are stronger than others and all the power belongs to families, not classes or races. Trumps are in many ways resemble Lannisters too
Are you saying he's...secretly right wing? That makes no sense. He opposed the Vietnam War back in the 60s, he's historically been left wing.
This is years old. Why doesn’t anyone ask him his thoughts now?
The US has the BIGGEST obligation to find a place for them! You guys are the ones who destroyed the Middle East, and now you just dump your mess into Europe? FUCK THAT!
How about they rebuild their own lives? Which is what happened in every war and society ever. Helping them won't be met with gratitude but it would be like helping enemies or opposition.
I wonder if George has walls around his house 🤔
@Ernst Robert Almgren fuck you and your dumb meme.
@Adam Cosper Not as simple as an NPC.
How simple can you be?
donald trump can suck my balls
People who say "He lost the popular vote!" are like people in sports who say, "We beat you everywhere but the scoreboard!" "Hell no, you're not going to get a peso from us!" Well, a peso is almost worthless.
Or a chess game. You checkmate the other guy, take his Queen, and this asshole cries that he got more of your pawns. It's petty and infantile, trying to save face in defeat
You missed the point about not contributing a single peso. When Trump got elected, everyone lost.
Glad to know not to pay attention to this hack. He ripped off Tad Williams
Media should ban George military should surround Gorge's house; don't let him come out until at least he is finished with Winds of Winter
As much as I disagree with George’s politics (being that they are borderline foolish and uninformed), he does have a right to express them. Its allowed, so calm down people on him expressing his opinions. That being said, you most certainly can rebuff his points as well. Just because he’s allowed to express his opinions doesn’t mean he is immune from criticism, as this interview clearly shows, his opinions are very flawed and in some cases hypocritical.Side note: I am more on the belief that people, especially celebrities, should remain quiet about their beliefs. It just creates division within your fanbase. Like I said, he is certainly allowed to express his opinions and that is fine. Don’t put much weight into his beliefs. But it does tend to divide people. And the interviewer should also not ask about it, its irrelevant and likewise personal. Say the wrong thing, people will look badly upon you.
too bad he also said Joe Biden's campaign announcement was "badass"
I'm a Trump supporter but I respect GRRM'S perspective and think he has a right to his opinion, even if it's something I don't agree with, and will continue to support him through being his patron as long as he puts out good stories, I don't see what his politics has anything to do with his storytelling. I imagine most Trump supporters would be on the same boat with me, and would have that kind of perspective on anyone.
@Dave Gunner I just think he has a bias which is normal for anyone to have, and his political bias would be evident in his writing and, in this case, his rhetoric. They way he mentions how Hilary lost the general election by electoral vote and not by popular, and in essence by extending the same sentimental statement towards Bush's candidacy - while knowing that it's always been by electoral college and that there was a good reason behind the electoral college system, ellicites to me that he's not unhinged by not giving the full narriative of the argument between the right and the left, and instead giving his biased perspective on politics - feeding to the already tired demagoguing of people who voted Trump into power, painting with broad strokes about his electorate and associating him with ppl who lean on the far right of the spectrum.This is by no means admonishing him as a person, just my critique on his perspective of the issue. Although I think it was dishonest at least and I've seen the same thing from people like David Pakman. I hope in the future there are more people on the left who can argue in good faith their positions without having to slander people on the right. I hope the same happens for people on my side. Doesn't look like it'll ever go that route however.
Only Playsveigar-well not all of them I’d imagine. But fair play for approaching it this way.I respect George’s views though, he is a history buff so he can obviously see the errors in human nature and it’s past.
Well they both like walls. Trump's isn't imaginary though.
So far it is.
George is a typical leftist. He writes good stories though.
@Muhammad Pope What? No thats not what the Overton window is. What is considered as acceptable beliefs and values has become more left wing over time. That is observable, measurable, and verifiable.
Raa16 the Overton window is shifting because of political Correctness is that what your saying? That is seriously so dumb, in so many ways I don’t even know where to begin
@Muhammad Pope Yes there is a typical leftist, progressive, liberal. You can't say their is a typical right winger because they basically keep on shifting with the Overton window as more and more people are disowned and disenfranchised by the left.
Colin Faust that couldn’t be further from the truth.
@Muhammad Pope Would have agreed 15 years ago maybe. Candidates reflect their constituency and all the politicians have the same ideas. So yea there is a typical leftist. Hate Donald Trump, total belief in climate change, believe all women, socialistic policies. And the typical conservative is the opposite. To give a few examples.
Now I know why season 8 sucked ass. 🤦♂️
Just an old fat Communist. Good writer though.
You know I didn't think about it till I saw this interview. Season 5 of GOT, the season in which Jon Snow let in the Wildings/Free Folk from beyond the wall (to protect them from the Night King, White Walkers, and Army of the Dead) and was subsequently stabbed by Allister Thorne and several others was in 2015, and that was the year in which Syrians were emigrating to the US/Europe to escape the atrocities going on in their home country. That's probably just a coincidence, but the parallels are quite intriguing.
Wow. Apparently no one told George that Trump only wants to stop ILLEGAL immigration. Nobody has said they want to stop immigration out-right. All these criticisms towards trump never hold up when you consider the facts of the matter.
America is doing pretty great with Trump as President actually.
No matter how much a Hollywood writer /actor /producer seems to understand the complicated nature of world events in his or her art (in this case books) when it comes down to it they are still Hollywood people holding most of the same Leftist views.
Wrote a story about promoting nihilism and degeneracy, no wonder he has degenerate political views.
The more I watch of Martin, the more I like him.
We are a nation of immigrants, import as many as possible. It worked out so well for the Native Americans, and the Palestinians.
I don't think anyone's saying to just let the flood gates open. Just that we need some number of immigrants for our economy to keep growing.
You can complain about the laugh, but that's roughly the right sound for a Mexican to make when they hear the suggestion that they're going to pay for our wall of dumb. It's a hilarious premise to the average Mexican, tinged with some sadness that a country to their northern border can be this dumb and still be important.
Why? Keep your politics to yourself please and let's go back to politics and religion being private.
Get back to writing books, fat shit
Fuck the whore she's not from here....and shut ur fat ass up and finish a fucking book ... how's about that
He's always in Mexico.
Trump is completely anti American. His great grandfather was an immigrant so who is he to decide who doesn't belong in this country?
There's a difference between legal immigrants and illegal immigrants, you disingenuous jackass.
Her laugh is of somebody who knows she has zero control on what the fuck Americans will do. Just worry about your country.
O_OWow. I am very impressed that Martin said such wonderful things about politics. I totally agree with him. I am glad that finally someone says something about the Native Americans. They are the only ones who can make a reasonable claim against immigration. I voted for Hillary Clinton. I have just learned that my popular vote had won. I thought Trump duped a lot of Americans with his pathetic campaign speeches. Now I see that there are plenty of Americans smarter than that. It was just a hiccup in the system. Darn the electoral college hiccups! The American people are smarter than I gave them credit for before. I was a lot more than concerned during the election. I was paranoid. Interestingly Game of Thrones applies to the Trump Wall. The Night's Watch has a wall blocking Free Folk and White Walkers. The Free Folk take issue with it, because they lived on the land first, and they are unfairly blocked off. Mexico actually owned more land in the past. Then the United States stole in the Mexican American War. So the Mexicans are like the Free Folk. If anyone should determine immigration in that part of America, it should be the Mexicans. The only one that should have more say is the Native Americans. The two are mixed. Mexican people tend to be part Native American and part Spanish. At the issue is resolved at the end of the TV show. One good thing the white walkers did was punch a hole in the wall, which gives more freedom for Free Folk. In the end there is no more Night's Watch or White Walkers. There are just Free Folk left, so they can take over. Jon Snow is supposed to be exiled to the Night's Watch. However there is no more Night's Watch. So instead Jon just goes with his Free Folk buddies. He has totally gone native. I hope he gets another Free Folk girlfriend in the future.
I'm honestly shocked at his political views after this interview. After reading ASoIF I was convinced that G.R.R Martin was, like me, a fellow wall enthusiast. However, I am dreadfully disappointed after seeing this interview. Then again no one has asked him his views on a northern wall, I wonder if he'd be more receptive.
George RR Martin can pay for the consequences of open borders if he wants them. Hold on - all the main characters in his shit books are white. White and abnormal. Typical leftist.
