President Trump held his first cabinet meeting of 2019 this year, and likely left the entire room bewildered by bringing a bizarre prop to the assembly of our nation’s highest officials — a printout of a meme he famously retweeted earlier this year.
No, we don't know why yet

The poster depicts Trump with text over him reading “Sanctions are Coming” in the font used by the hit HBO show Game of Thrones, and the date of November 4th.
The poster was originally debuted in early November when the President used it to promote his plan to re-impose all the sanctions on the Islamic Republic of Iran that had been lifted by President Obama’s historic nuclear peace treaty.
As of press time, it is still unclear why the President brought this poster to his cabinet meeting, though it goes without saying that literally printing memes out and carrying them around is about as “cranky old man” as it gets.
Social media, on the other hand, had some very different interpretations of the meme. Here’s a collection of the best responses:
