Barack Obama's Diary: Purple reign

Dear Diary: I have asked Marv Nicholson to record the new season of Game of Thrones for me to watch at my convenience. I have never seen it, but Valerie says it may give me some ideas  on how to govern by  fear, have heads mounted on pikes  and other deliciously dissolute pastimes enjoyed by royalty. Power to the purple,  I say. But enough about me.
