George W. Bush Beheaded On HBO

George W. Bush Beheaded On HBO
SCREENSHOT
The DVD commentary for “Games of Thrones” says this is the head of George W. Bush.

George W. Bush is a star on HBO, but he doesn’t have a very flattering role. The former President’s head is impaled on a stick in episode 10 of “Games of Thrones.”

The medieval fantasy show used a mask that resembled the 43rd President for a scene that featured the heads of several decapitated men. The DVD commentary contains this statement: “The last head on the left is George Bush. George Bush’s head appears in a couple of beheading scenes. It’s not a choice, it’s not a political statement. We just had to use whatever head we had lying around.”

The show’s creators, David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, later issued an apology.

We use a lot of prosthetic body parts on the show: heads, arms, etc. We can’t afford to have these all made from scratch, especially in scenes where we need a lot of them, so we rent them in bulk. After the scene was already shot, someone pointed out that one of the heads looked like George W. Bush. In the DVD commentary, we mentioned this, though we should not have. We meant no disrespect to the former President and apologize if anything we said or did suggested otherwise.

The network also apologized. “We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste. …We are sorry this happened and will have it removed from any future DVD production.”

    i saw this on the news. You can’t even tell it’s George Bush. I don’t know how anybody even noticed it.

    • Big Woody

      Maybe they noticed by the tag on the back of the mask

    • Sharr

      May God bless George Bush.
      He was set up by Bill “Blue Dress” Clinton and the lame duck congress back in the day as
      Bill walted out of the wh in the late 90′s. The “gift” from Blue Dress and congress was the merging of banking and commerce. The deregulation caused Bush to be part of the biggest meltdown in our financial history. It still exists today AKA Jamie Dimon and JPM’s $3B loss a couple of weeks ago. Hence the shorts, naked shorts, derivatives, swaps, you name it all of those creative “vehicles” are sabotaging our financial system thanks to Blue Dress and Co. Read it and weep Karolyn ~ unless you don’t want to notice and it is more convenient not to notice.

      • Karolyn

        The Bush’s don’t need your blessings. They have their Skull & Bones fraternity to take care of them.

    i dont watch that silly program.

  • former walmart person

    Awesome, I love America. You can’t do this in North Korea or your own head will be impaled on a stake. God bless the USA. For the time being, although this is rapidly changing, our fearless leaders don’t have a monoply on rediculing and the common peasants don’t have a monoploy on being rediculed.

  • Big Woody

    Nixon and Lewinski should be offended that they would be slighted by not being included in such a way. I would say Bill and Hillary too, but I doubt such an oversight would accedentally happen to the Royal couple by the left coast.

      Why not the ayatollah barack and his MOOOOO’s heads which richly deserve to be on pikes on the White House lawn for being traitors to this country – even if they are made out of plastic or polystyrene

      • Bill

        All in time… Nov. is around the corner, there is change in the air.

      • slapjack

        No No No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This would upset the veggies in Mooshells garden.

  • Charles

    The time will come when those who are part of all of this, will regret the day, and have no way to retrace or retract their words and actions. Sad. May God bless and defend the Bush family!!!

    • Karolyn

      You’re seriously taking this seriously?

    • TIME

      Dear Charles,

      May God give the Bush family their due rewards of a LONG HOT Rosting in HELL where they belong along with every one of the members of both houses of congress for the last 160 years, Oh and with them all the CEO’s / POTUS.

      Why? They are all 100% Guilty of Treason, but thats under the “Original Constitution” Of what saddly has not been in use for that 160 years.

      Peace and Love

        You got that right TIME!!!

  • Shorty

    Isn’t that a threat? I think the Secret Service should be making a visit.

    • eddie47d

      No one knew it was G Bush and thankfully they apologized for allowing this to happen. Years ago in some movie with a battle scene of charging forces an actor was seen wearing tennis shoes. They didn’t edit this soldier out but the public caught it. A slight embarrassment for the producers.

  • kona

    “WE JUST HAD TO USE WHATEVER HEAD WE HAD LAYING AROUND”!! IF ANYONE BELIEVES THAT, THEY HAVE BEEN DRINKING OR SMOKING SOMETHING. IT’S AMAZING WHAT HBO GETS AWAY WITH. THE ONLY GOOD PROGRAM FEATURED ON HBO RECENTLY WAS THE DOCUMENTARY “41″ ABOUT THE LIFE OF GEORGE H.W. BUSH. IRONIC, HUH?

  • dwiagn

    What if they had used a copy of “OB’s ” head ? It would be on all the left wing networks, Jesse Jackson and Big Al Sharpton would be complaining about raceism in the media and
    be itching for a big donation to the various race baiting causes of their own.

  • Louise Joyner

    This is so dscussion, how can anyone be so disrespectful Why dont these people on the left leave this family alone. I am so appaled at how much and how long they are going to continued to blame The bush family for their mistates.yOU CAN BET THE LIBERAL STATIONS WOULD ALREADY PUT THIS OUT IF IT WAS ON THE dEMCRATS. iF YOU ASK ME THIS ADMINISTRATION OWES THE bUSH fAMILY AN APPOLIGY.

    • Alma

      You are so right The Bush family has so much class He and his dad as well are gentlemen and their wives ladies something this country really needs today

  • rocketride

    “We use a lot of prosthetic body parts on the show: heads, arms, etc.
    We can’t afford to have these all made from scratch, especially in scenes

    should not have. We meant no disrespect to the former President and
    apologize if anything we said or did suggested otherwise.”

    And that makes it all better?

    It begs the question of why these bozos just happened to have a mask of GWB’s severed head lying around to use in the first place. The “fact” that they didn’t actually make this mask for this episode of this production but had it left over from some other production really doesn’t help. So Benioff &co. should just “man up” and admit it was a deliberate dig, if not the first one with this particular prop.

    Assignment for all the folks who actually watch that stuff: Find the prior appearances, if any. (It’s conceivable that it got made for a previous production and somebody there thought better of actually using it.) I haven’t been watching “Game of Thrones” because
    1) I don’t have HBO and 2) I read the first book in the series and I really wasn’t all that impressed with it, though I have liked a lot of George R. R. Martin’s other work. (I kind of like there to be at least one reasonably effective sympathetic character with a lifespan longer than a fruit fly’s attention span.)

  • Average Joe

    I find the entire disscussion to be ridiculous…a distraction…and nothing more. Funny, nobody noticed the head…until the DVD pointed it out on the disc…..It was meant to illicit emotions…from everyone….a simple distraction……
    Yawn…….

    • JeffH

      Average Joe, absolutley right you are. Meanigless discussion material and only worthy for those like “jopa”, who’s only attribute is a gossipy mentality.

      YAWN #2!

      • eddie47d

        Now you are going to make the author feel bad for dissing him. “meaningless discussion material”. Now don’t tell me this is the first time you have noticed that.

      • jopa

        I have to agree with you again about the above article being absolutely meaningless;The head pictured above looks more like Sara Palin.However with gas prices falling the economy on the upswing, the Iraq war over, the auto industry booming it looks like all we have left to talk about are video games.Have a nice Fathers Day.

  • Liberterian

    It should have been Cheney’s head not George Bush. He was the big government, war mongering tycoon of Wyoming. He made up the stories to thrust the illegal political war in Iraq. Thank the poor soliders that lost their lives for a lie. Cheney made billions for Haliburton and lost thousands of good patriot (American Soliders ) lives so a Shia government could be born in Iraq, that never appreciated the loss of our childrens lives.

  • T. Jefferson

    Just another of the reasons I don’t watch HBO

    • eddie47d

      Alot of people say that when they can’t afford it .Much like a few other satellite stations or cable. ( I can’t either)

  • Karolyn

    So much ado about nothing. They’ve removed the scene from the dvd. All’s well….

  • http://www.morrissons.org Morris D. Sons Ph,D

    I know that they are having some fun playing this game, but in reality I seen a clip on YouTube where a Theologian Paul Begley of Indiana exposes FEMA and the new Guillotines that come from Japan and China, these new devices was ordered in 2011 for FEMA and the NWO that is getting ready to rise into power. Research is the key for americans if they really want to know.

    • Karolyn

      “These new devices WAS ordered”? If you’re a Ph.D., I’m a saint!

  • muriel paul

    Wow talk about disresepctful…how dare they…could you imagine if it was the other way around? you would Never and I mean Never hear the end of it…this makes me ill! Now I know why I would never watch or subscribe to HBO!

  • Donald York

    Let’s try Hussein Oblamo’s head on a stick boys. I guess you think this is entertaining? IDIOTS!

    • jopa

      Donald York;That was nice of you to man up and confess to being an idiot.There are several idiots that come to this site but you are the first to sign off as one. Thanks again for your honesty.

      • JeffH

        Takes one to know one!

  • dcjdavis

    Somehow, I doubt that George is losing any sleep over this.

    • jopa

      JeffH;And You if anybody, you have known idiots for a long long time now, right?Have a Happy Fathers Day.

      • JeffH

        Meeting you here jopa was my first clue of what an idiot was. Up until then, I thought all of ‘em like you were just stupid.

  • Sandra

    Its easy to thought that Obama or his cronies are behind this, his is a pathetic liar, an American hater, George Bush was the President Obama never can be, not even closer…because everything about Obama is a lie. God bless President Bush, he still involved in many programs to help the poor around the most poor countries in the world. The Bush gallery and Library Center is one of them. The Obama’s spend like Marie Antoniet, the tax-payers money while Americans goes hungry and are losing their homes.

  • rickey/popasmurfs

    Can we move on who cares who did what, We can fix this it is going to take common sense and big bad business to put up or shut up..
