There is a lot of responsibility that comes with being the leader of a nation, but there are a bunch of perks as well. The President never has to get stuck in traffic because the police always clears the road ahead of him. He gets to invited celebrities over to the White House to hang out. He’s friends with Oprah. And, apparently, the President can request to see TV shows before they’ve even aired.
The New York Daily News reports that President Obama called the head honcho at HBO to ask for Game of Thrones season 4 and the new series True Detective, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, so he could binge watch them over his 3-day weekend vacation in Southern California. The fantastic reality is that he got them. The President spent his President’s Day weekend watching cable dramas that haven’t aired yet.
We were totally inspired by the possibilities of presidential perks. We had to know what perks we’d have if we were the President.
