In a New York Times Q&A, Martin was asked if the president reminded him of Hodor because he endlessly repeats his own name. "Well, that’s amusing," Martin responded. "But I think even during the campaign I said that Trump reminded me most of Joffrey. They have the same level of emotional maturity. And Joffrey likes to remind everyone that he’s king. And he thinks that gives him the ability to do anything. And we’re not an absolute monarchy, like Westeros is. We’re a constitutional republic. And yet, Trump doesn’t seem to know what that means. He thinks the presidency gives him the power to do anything. And so, yeah, Joffrey is Trump." ALSO: Martin's favorite current TV comedy is The Big Bang Theory.
