President Barack Obama is a big-time Game of Thrones fan (he even gets to see episodes before you do), and he demonstrated his knowledge of the acclaimed fantasy series in a new video.

Appearing in a BuzzFeed video titled "5 Things That Are Harder Than Registering to Vote," Obama was asked to list off all the characters who have died in the HBO show throughout its six-season run. As you can see in the SPOILER-FILLED video below, he does a pretty good job.

He briskly moves through the names of deceased Game of Thrones characters but pauses for one in particular. "Hodor. That was sad," he says. It was indeed very sad.

As revealed back in April, HBO sends Obama advanced copies of Game of Thrones episodes, making him likely the most dangerous person on the internet.

"When the commander-in-chief says 'I want to see advanced episodes,' what are you gonna do?" showrunner David Benioff said.

The Game of Thrones Season 6 finale, "The Winds of Winter," aired this past Sunday, June 26. You can watch the latest episode of GameSpot of Thrones to see editors analyze the events of the episode, discuss the potential ramifications, and make a few predictions.
