President Obama Gets To See Game Of Thrones Before Everyone Else


President Barack Obama gets early copies of HBO’s Game of Thrones before the general public.

The show’s creators confirmed to Vanity Fair that the president received copies of the show before it’s released to the general public.

In a report published Tuesday, Vanity Fair asked Game of Thrones creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff about a rumor that Obama regularly gets episodes of the show early. They responded in an email “one perk of being the most powerful man in the world: yes, you get to see episodes early.”

Obama has said in the past that he likes Game of Thrones along with Homeland, The Wire, and House of Cards, according to a New York Times report last year.

Game of Thrones season 4 premieres April 6.
