Barack Obama Took a Break From Presidenting to Geek Out Over 'The Wire' Creator David Simon
When David Simon, the creator of The Wire and a former journalist, was invited to the White House, do we think he was under the impression that he would be interviewing President Obama? Well, nope! Obama, noted Wire superfan, was leading this conversation.
Okay, so they didn’t just talk about The Wire. They also talked about the real-life war on drugs, and the whole thing is fascinating, since these are two brilliant dudes with a unique insight into these issues.
