Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have admitted that the U.S. president will be getting an early look at the upcoming sixth season of the HBO series. Why? Because he asked for it.
“He’s the leader of the free world,” Weiss said during HBO’s Facebook Live stream at the Game of Thrones premiere.
Benioff was similarly defensive about the decision. “When the commander-in-chief says, ‘I want to see advanced episodes,’ what are you gonna do?”
