POTUS sees ‘Game of Thrones’ early


The White House, Air Force One, and now—advance Game of Thrones screenings?

The perks of running the U.S. are varied, but perhaps none so coveted amongst HBO fans as early screeners of Game of Thrones.

In a report published by Vanity Fair on Tuesday, the show’s creators confirmed that they provide the president with early episodes—long before the rest of us common people see them.

“One perk of being the most powerful man in the world: yes, you get to see episodes early,” show creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff wrote in an email.
