Like many Americans, George R.R. Martin wishes Tuesday night had gone differently.
The Game of Thrones
creator took to his website
with a bleak outlook after Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton
to become the 45th President of the United States.
"There are really no words for how I feel this morning. America has spoken. I really thought we were better than this. Guess not," the 68-year-old author wrote in a post titled "President P**ygrabber."
"Trump was the least qualified candidate ever nominated by a major party for the presidency. Come January, he will become the worst president in American history, and a dangerously unstable player on the world stage," he added. "And the decimated Democrats, a minority in both House and Senate, do not have the power to hinder him."
"Over the next four years, our problems are going to get much, much worse," Martin concluded. "Winter is coming. I told you so."
This is not the first time Martin has voiced his strong dislike for Trump.
In a post last week aimed at New Mexico voters, Martin wrote
, "In my lifetime, there has never been a presidential candidate more unfit to lead this nation."
Martin is not alone in being saddened by the prospect of a Trump presidency.
