The former D.C. mayor reveals he has a good sense of humor about his past scandals in a Twitter exchange about "Game of Thrones" Sunday night.

Former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry is not only a Game of Thrones fan, but the politician also seems to have a good sense of humor about his past scandals, not minding when a Twitter user referenced them in an exchange about the HBO show.

After tweeting, “My main man Tyrion! #GameOfThrones” during Sunday night's finale, which focused on Peter Dinklage's character Tyrion Lannister, Twitter user @kept_simple tweeted at Barry, “bitch set him up,” a reference to what Barry said when he was caught smoking crack with a former girlfriend in an FBI sting.
