President Barack Obama sure has been upping his cool factor lately. First, he proves he has major singing chops by performing a few lines of an Al Green song in Harlem. Next, he gets a Spotify account packed with a playlist that's actually impressive. Then, he sings again, and is still good at it.
Now, Obama has seriously succeeded in boosting his pop culture cred. During an appearance on the Bill Simmons podcast, The B.S. Report, the Prez had this to say about one of the best shows of our time, 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.
Yeah, our President's a cool dude.
