Does this mean that he is going to meet actual video game characters? That would actually be perfect.
That meeting with Mark Kern, Curt Schilling and Boogie in the parking lot of a Tacoma Sonic is gonna be political D…
Weird right? @ABC @CBCNews @BBC @nbc @CNN @FoxNews @AP
Man it’s just gonna be Trump, Notch and Palmer Luckey isn’t it?
he's meeting with notch and the creator of the original nude raider mod
If GamerGate people got invited to White House it will be amazing fail.
For fucks sake....
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Hier pak ik de popcorn vast bij jongens. Wat een soap dat presidentschap
If Valve got invited I'm gonna be shocked

I think they made appointments to meet with Mario Mario, Irving Pac, Miles Prower, and Lara Croft.
So, by gaming execs, he probably means six of his closest friends that might have played Asteroids once. So much h…

Not shocking. A week ago, he didn't even know the ESRB -which has been around for 24 years- existed. Why would he…
do you ever get the feeling this presidential administration makes things up as they go along
Put me in, coach.
Oh look, it was just FAKE NEWS anyway. Sad!
@HallieJackson @jaketapper @PeterAlexander @ZekeJMiller ESA says it hasn't been invited to next week WH meeting abo…
More “truth” from “45.” Wants to meet with video game companies but is scared to meet with the #NRA. 🐔 💩 🐴 🤡
The news did just break only a couple hours ago. If it’s been a couple days and these people still haven’t been inv…
So this is all just a smokescreen, yeah?
Leave gaming alone. Go after guns. Anything else is blind stupidity.
Not the biggest fan of Kotaku, but this sounds like the truer side of things. Trump claiming he’s doing something…
Most likely put cardboard cutouts of sonic, Mario, crash bandicoot and solid snake around him and he'll just let lo…
Interesting development
This is a problem. This is a huge problem.
But that would mean the President was... oh, what's the word...
Watch this. I have a feeling he's going to go after games the way other historical figures went after books.
Ah ben tiens, si les principaux concernés par la fameuse réunion avec des acteurs de l'industrie JV n'ont même pas…
@davidscottjaffe Apparently, no one (at the moment.) Although it's entirely possible that some exec chose to do so…
What could go wrong...
Whaaaat the FUUUCK?
Well this certainly bodes well.
Big surprise, there.
that's very rude after the check they cut him
Time to dust off Jenkins’ seminal criticism of media effects theory (again)
@Maolfunction @tforks_ oh well this just got more interesting
Why does this not surprise me?
... yikes ...
Back to square one and lying again.....*slow clap*
A quick read, and the ESA's statement is solid and to the point.
lol of course
This is a sham. If video games contributed to or inspired violence to the magnitude that the US has, every nation o…

Omg stop
This creaton cannot seem to comprehend that there is no link between violence in video games and pulling a gun out…
Have we all been sent back to the nineties!? This is one throwback I could do without -_-
LMFREAKINGAO
Oh god... this isn't going to end well.
Guns don't kill people, video games do...
We all know he's meeting with Curt Schilling, @Kotaku
No, no, no. I am not letting this goober ruin games for me.
The White House needs to stop making a fool out of themselves.
This is so fucking stupid!
Oh hi, 1992. How's it been?
oh, well this is quite frankly worrying
nope...all the way nope...
Surprise! The POTUS makes shit up on a daily basis and didn't actually set up a meeting that wouldn't help anything…
God he's probably meeting with Logan Paul, Dr. DisRespect and Pewdiepie, isn't he?
@realDonaldTrump The Same "Violent" Games that "caused" these shootings, are played WORLD WIDE Dumbass!

He's going to be super bummed when he finds out Lara Croft won't be coming to the White House.
White House says Trump will meet with "members of the video game industry" next week

I hope this doesn't lead to a video game's reputation being ruined over association.
Trump about to fix Destiny 2
Well, this isn't looking good... Is the game industry the next thing Trump is going to ruin for everyone?
Probably Wario.
Trump: "Seriously guys, what the fuck was that game Hunt Down the Freeman?, we're banning Kpop."
Trump probably calls Luigi "Green Mario"
Please, no. This geriatric fuck has no idea what he’s getting involved in.
