Barack Obama Stands by His Correct Pick of Omar Little As the Best Wire Character

Omar Little is the best Wire character of all-time, according to Barack Obama. The Commander-in-Chief's Omar Little fandom has been on the books since 2008, when he said "he's not my favorite person, but he's a fascinating character," and President Obama recently reaffirmed his position on the matter. On the most recent episode of The B.S. Report, and after some solid sports banter, Bill Simmons asked the president about the Great Wire Question of Character Supremacy. "It's got to be Omar, right? I mean, that guy is unbelievable," Obama said. "I mean, what a combination. And that was one of the best shows of all-time." We can now consider this hotly debated issue completely settled. Team McNulty and Team Stringer Bell, please lick your wounds accordingly.
