Obama Gets To Watch 'Game Of Thrones' Early And Now We're Officially Jealous

The leader of the free world gets what the leader of the free world wants.

President Obama has access to a lot of things we as regular ol' people don't have.


He has nuclear codes, "The Beast," the White House, Jerry Seinfeld, presidential bubbles — and now he has something even more coveted than all of those things combined.

Can't even look at you right now, Obama.

That's right. He is getting advanced episodes of the upcoming season of "Game of Thrones." OK, Obama, we see how it is.

According to the show's creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, the president personally requested an advanced screening of the sixth season.

Per BuzzFeed, Benioff explained at the Hollywood premiere that they had no choice. 

"When the commander-in-chief says, 'I want to see advanced episodes,' what are you going to do?" 

Weiss added, "It was a very strange moment ... He's the leader of the free world."

"Look out there, buddy! All those people have no idea what happened to Jon Snow, but we do!"

Nah, Obama, you want to know what relationships are really built on self-interest? Being friends with the "GoT" creators and not sharing, that's what.

You already have your own private 747. Do you really need to have "GoT," too? You don't.

We guess Benioff is right, though. You can't really tell the president he can't watch. Besides, it's his last year in the White House. We guess he's allowed to have some fun.

Just don't look excited about it. We can't take the suspense for another 10 days.

Just tell us if he's alive! Please!

We guess we'll just enjoy toying around with this 360-degree "GoT" intro for now. You can have our taxes, but you just had to take our TV, too.
