President Obama asked for ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘True Detective’ early

Who exactly does President Barack HUSSEIN Obama think he is, anyway? The King of England?

Obama tried to leverage his position as Commander in Chief to curry favor from HBO honcho Richard Plepler at the recent state dinner for the French president.

Buried at the bottom of a New York Times story about Netflix and HBO is a telling anecdote about the “Hawaiian-born” president and his elite friends:

“President Obama stopped Mr. Plepler at a state dinner to ask for advance copies of ‘True Detective’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ to watch over the holiday weekend,” according to the Times.

As the rest of America lies tortuously in wait to finish the final three episodes of “True Detective” and sits at home patiently awaiting the April premiere of “Game of Thrones,” the president was wining and dining executives in an attempt to learn who killed all those hookers and just how naked the next season of “Game of Thrones” will be before anyone else does.

Instead of playing golf all day every day over Presidents’ Day weekend, Obama planned to sit in his room like a teenager and watch hours and hours of R-rated cable shows.

If Obama did receive the episodes early — and he may have — he would have spent 16 hours in front of the television instead of focusing on governing our great nation.

This isn’t the first time he has used his position to unfairly get things he wants. Just last week, when Obama was visiting Monticello and went to an area of the home where no other visitors are allowed he flippantly mentioned, “That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want.”
