If there was one perk of being President of the USA I’m jealous of, it’s being able to watch episodes of Game of Thrones before anyone else. Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss confirmed the news with Vanity Fair in an email: “One perk of being the most powerful man in the world: yes, you get to see episodes early.”
Obama previously asked HBO chief Richard Plepler for advanced episodes of both Game of Thrones and True Detective, and now we have confirmation that he got at least one of them. So if you’d like to know what happens next before the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones, you now have two choices. Read the books or ask President Obama.
