In a now deleted series of tweets, Carter Bays, former showrunner of How I Met Your Mother, had some words for people disappointed in Jamie Lannister's apparent aborted redemption arc on the latest episode of Game of Thrones. He says that people who wanted Jamie Lannister to develop/change or be redeemed are why we have Donald Trump as our current president.

So let me set this straight. Carter bays, a writer for HIMYM said that people asking for redemption arc for some guy in GoT are the reason Trump was elected. Then he proceeded to compare Han Solo, Tony Stark and Barney Stinson to Trump? Then he deleted all his tread? pic.twitter.com/cL1Aagjgrk

Additional tweets that didn't get screenshot but were still c/p'ed

"Redemption is great, but when we celebrate the people who come over to the good side more than the ones who’ve always been there, we get into trouble. To be more specific, we get Trump.

I guess what I’m saying is, Jaime Lannister pushed a ten-year-old out of a window. Brienne can better."
