Being the President of the Unites States of America probably has a few perks - you don't have to drive anywhere, you get a lot of free stuff, you really don't have to take care of your house, and, apparently, you get to preview the one show everyone in America wants to see. So who really cares if you have to deal with Congress?

"When the commander-in-chief says 'I want to see advanced episodes,' what are you going to do?" questioned Game of Thrones co-showrunner David Benioff during an interview with Veronica Belmont at a Hollywood screening of the season premiere of season 6 of Game of Thrones.

This is big news for fans of Game of Thrones because the new seasons is the first season to pass the events of the published source, A Song of Ice and Fire, the novels by George R. R. Martin.

The production company has been working overtime to ensure that there aren't any spoilers out there - or even worse, leaks. Last season, the first four episodes were leaked. HBO chose not to send out any screeners this time around.

However, President Obama must have some special connections.

It is especially funny because, in an effort to keep things secret, even some of the actors haven't seen the early episode. Game of Thrones actor Liam Cunningham mentioned that he will see the episodes after President Obama, saying: "Did you know he gets advance copies? POTUS. He gets DVD copies before we do. And we’re in it!"

Obama has been trying to get spoilers about the series for a long time. In fact, when he met with the director of the last few episodes of season 5, David Nutter, he asked, "You didn't kill Jon Snow, did you?" According to Nutter, his response was: "Mr. President, Jon Snow is deader than dead."

Game of Thrones season 6 premieres (for everyone but President Obama) on April 24th.
