In the famous "documentary" Tyrion — played by Peter Dinklage — actually opts for trial by combat (an option only afforded to noblemen) twice, having been falsely accused of murder and attempted murder on two separate occasions.
If you are confused as to who is Tyrion in this analogy, and who are the victims Bran Stark / Joffrey Baratheon, who are the accusers Catelyn Stark / Cersei Lannister, who are the judges Robyn Arryn / Tywin Lannister, who are the defense champions Ser Bronn / Oberyn Martell and who are the prosecution champions Vardis Egen / Gregor Clegane... well, we'll let him explain further:
"...I'm talking about trial between machines. In fact, you'll see it comes up exactly in the context of I challenge them to allow us examine their machines. And then I say the consequences of the trial by combat will be if they prove that we're wrong, we'll be exceedingly embarrassed, we'll be disgraced. If we prove they're wrong, they go to jail."
He continued: "So, I explain it in proper context. It incited no violence from the crowd. None. The crowd didn't jump up saying 'lock him up, throw him in jail, go to hell'. I've had speeches where people jump in and say, 'lock him up.' It was not an emotional — it was not an emotion-inspiring part of the speech. So, try to take it out of context and use it is typical of the crooked left and press."
I asked Rudy Giuliani about his call for "trial by combat" during last week's rally that preceded the Capitol riots. He first explained the concept by referencing Game of Thrones, then rejected the idea that he was referencing physical violence or that it incited the crowd. pic.twitter.com/J6HV5rVBBf
