In a truly bizarre reaction to President Donald Trump’s Tuesday night State of the Union address on Capitol Hill, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore used a “Game of Thrones” reference to describe the Democratic congresswomen who chose to dress in white for the address.
“The Women in White — what must Trump have thought when he saw this unstoppable sight?” began Moore.
“He saw his future. His near future. They are coming for him. The White Walkers. He tried to avert his eyes to the sea of white men on his left, to no avail. No amount of Tic Tacs will save him,” Moore added on Twitter, with a picture of the women next to an image of Tic Tacs.

The “White Walkers” statement is a reference to HBO’s massively popular fantasy series “Game of Thrones.”
On the show, the characters face an impending threat called the White Walkers, a mysterious zombie army that destroys everything in its path.
In the series, the group is also called the “army of the dead.”
If Moore is trying to celebrate these women — then comparing them to an “army of the dead” is certainly a bizarre way to do it.
It’s also a bit odd that he would compare them to what amounts to a group of villains on a popular television show.
It either shows Moore’s complete incompetence as he attempts to make a “hip” reference — or it just shows that he will do anything and everything to attach himself to whatever trending liberal movement is happening.
He’s a filmmaker who is desperate to stay relevant, especially in the wake of a project that was a complete flop for him last fall.
