As the world waits with bated breath for the new season of Game of Thrones to premiere on April 24, there's one guy smirking in the Oval Office with all the spoilers.

Of course President Barack Obama is the only person in the world to get his hands on early episodes of season six.

On Friday one half of the Game of Thrones showrunners, Dan Weiss revealed POTUS is the only GoT fan outside HBO to have caught the first few episodes of the yet-to-be-released season.

And one woman in the U.S is so outraged enthralled by the revelation that she's filed a Freedom of Information Act request to have the episodes released by the U.S government.

Refinery29 journalist Vanessa Golembewski has a feeling President Obama, or at least a government clerk dealing with FOIA requests, "will be delighted to help a girl out".

"Perhaps, in one of his final cool-president moves, he will thoroughly recap the first couple episodes of GoT in a vlog or something," wrote Golembewski on the site.

The request has since been moved from "submitted" to "evaluation" stage according to Golembewski, who doesn't think an "approved" message will be finding its way into her inbox anytime soon.

"I am one step closer to what is bound to be an epic rejection letter."
