Colbert’s show tweaked the show’s tagline to warn the president that “subpoenas are coming" after Democratic lawmakers on Monday requested documents from 81 Trump associates and entities. 

“They’re coming — 81 document requests in the expanding Trump probe,” the voice-over said. 


The clip also includes a shot of the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.Don John TrumpSouth Dakota governor flew with Trump on Air Force One after being exposed to coronavirus: report Gianforte halts in-person campaigning after wife, running mate attend event with Guilfoyle Trump Jr. knocks CNN's Chris Cuomo over interview with father: 'I'm not pretending to be a journalist' MORE, who was included in the records request. 

“A daring attack launched by House Dems,” the voice-over continued. “This spring, brace yourself: Subpoenas are coming. 'Shame of Thrones.’ The final season?”

Trump is seen on the show's iconic iron throne wearing a "Make America Great Again" crown. The White House is also imposed onto the Red Keep, the fictional home of the wicked Lannister family that rules Westeros.

The Hill has reached out to HBO for comment.

Trump has a contentious relationship with the network after using the trademarked slogans to promote his administration’s agenda last year. 

HBO slammed Trump in November after he used the tagline and font to promote his sanctions against Iran.

"We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes," an HBO spokeswoman previously told The Hill.

Trump, however, continued to use “Game of Thrones”-inspired memes on his official Instagram account earlier this year, this time to support his plan for a U.S.-Mexico border wall.

The eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" returns on April 14.
