Barack Obama Says Omar Was the Best Wire Character of All Time

President Obama was the featured guest on Bill Simmons podcast The B.S. Report this week, and revealed himself as a fan of Omar Little, gay mass-murdering drug dealer from The Wire.

BS: Settle an office debate. Best Wire character of all time?

Obama: It's got to be Omar, right? I mean, that guy is unbelievable, right?

BS: We might break this down as like a March Madness bracket, and I think he's going to be the no. 1 seed. [Laughter.] Everyone is in on Omar, it seems like.

Obama: He's got to be the no. 1 seed. I mean, what a combination. And that was one of the best shows of all time.

BS: Yes, I agree with you.

Obama: Yes, it was a great show.

Politifact is expected to give this statement a "FUCK yeah!!!" on the Truth-O-meter later this afternoon. [B.S. Report via Grantland, images via AP and Wikimedia Commons]
