Watch President Obama Spoil Several Game of Thrones Deaths for the Sake of Democracy


Father, lawyer, former senator, current president, and Game of Thrones fan Barack Obama named eight dead characters — well, seven and one resurrected Stark — during a BuzzFeed video interview encouraging Americans to vote. The clip featured five things harder to do than participating in democracy — like playing Operation or making a friendship bracelet for your best bud and VP Joe Biden. Obama only gets through eight of the hundreds of characters killed, including two Direwolves and one Jon Snow, who the president admits “doesn’t count.” He also takes a moment to pause after naming Hodor, “That was sad.” It sure was POTUS, it sure was.
