While the rest of us struggle with expensive cable packages or try to bum HBO GO passwords, the president has already taken delivery of screeners for season 4 of Game of Thrones. Commoners won't get the first episode until April 6.
"One perk of being the most powerful man in the world: yes, you get to see episodes early," showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss told Vanity Fair.
Game of Thrones has been a favorite in House Obama for some time. At a state dinner last month, the president asked HBO CEO Richard Plepler for advance episodes of Game and True Detective, the New York Times reported.
We know he got one of the two shows, but nobody has confirmed whether Obama withheld the identity of the Yellow King from the American public. Scandal!
