Obama Knows The Nuclear Codes And If Jon Snow Is Really Dead (Probably)

Thanks, Obama

Turns out being the President of The United States comes with more perks than you even realized.

At the Season 6 premiere red carpet live stream, Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss responded to a question about any "A-ha!" moments the pair have had in regards to the show's extremely wild success. Their response? The fact that President Obama loves Game of Thrones just as much as the rest of us.

"I think for both of us, finding out that the president wanted advance copies of the episodes ... That was a big 'a-ha moment,'" Weiss told Veronica Belmont, host of the "Sword and Laser" podcast. "When the commander-in-chief says, ‘I want to see advance episodes,’ what are you gonna do?" added Benioff.

Considering that no press has seen season 6 -- nor have any of the show's actors -- President Obama might be the only living human on earth who knows if Jon Snow is dead or alive.

And not everyone is happy about it.
