Who here loves The Wire?

Who here also loves Barrack Obama??

Who here has no strong opinions either way???

However you feel, The President of the United States of America sat down with David Simon, the creator of The Wire, to talk about some really important issues.

Why did the busiest man in the country take time out of his schedule to talk to the creator of a TV show?

Because they were conversing about "the challenges law enforcement face and the consequences communities bear from the war on drugs," per the video's description.

Obama, being a "huge fan" of The Wire (he's just like everyone else!), is able to relate issues from the show to current issues Americans face every day.

It's so amazing he took the time to have this sit down with Simon!

Check out the video (below) to hear Obama's thoughts on some very serious issues and how they really relate to the hit HBO show.

Ben Affleck is just oozing pure awesome!

The political-minded crusader for good went to Capitol Hill to testify before the Senate State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs Subcommittee.

Flanked by fellow world-saving hero Bill Gates, Ben began his passionate speech about getting more U.S. foreign assistance to further economic development programs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

He loves the Congo and has been doing charity work there ever since his first visit seven years ago.

Before getting too far into his speech, he had to stop and call out his fellow Batman co-star… Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)!

Senator Leahy actually has a bit of a Batman history!

He was a background actor in 1997's Batman & Robin, had his face grabbed and threatened with a knife by Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight and even had a speaking role in The Dark Knight Rises on the Wayne Enterprises board!

So Ben's little joke went over pretty well.

Check out the video (below) to see Ben Affleck being his wonderful, charismatic self, but also feel free to listen to his entire speech. He's a smart man with a lot of good things to say.

Miley Cyrus, Hillary Clinton, & More Speak Out Against Indiana's New LGBT Discrimination Law!

Indiana just passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act after Governor Mike Pence signed it into law, and people are not happy!

Why?

Because the thrust of the new law is that businesses are now legally free to discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity as long as they claim their religion is against it.

[ Video: Perez Talking #BoycottDolceGabbana On CNN! ]

But not all businesses want to turn people away based on prejudice. The NCAA and Gen Con have already threatened to lessen their presence or pull out of the state entirely.

Yep, the jocks AND the nerds are against it! LOLz!

But those aren't the only strange bedfellows this deplorable bill is making! Celebs from Miley Cyrus to Hillary Clinton have come out against the law on social media.

See some of the best responses (below):

Gay Man Beaten In Hate Crime… But His Attacker Was Bisexual?? The FBI Is Stepping In To Sort Things Out

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikSad SadInjuryAttack!Crazzzzy

Devin Norman is a 26-year-old gay man who was brutally beaten, simply for being gay.

But now there are conflicting reports. Now, more details are emerging and the FBI is getting involved!!

It all went down in the town of Corinth, Mississippi when James Scott, 23, brutally beat Devin Norman in a Walmart parking lot. That part is not really in dispute. But the 'why' is.

He allegedly came out of nowhere and attacked Devin, screaming homophobic slurs at him and kicking him repeatedly.

Police eventually caught and arrested Mr. Scott, who was charged with simple assault. Due to the serious nature of Norman's wounds, people were outraged the charge wasn't "aggravated assault." It was eventually upgraded from "simple" to "aggravated" after police realized Norman had broken bones.

What upset people the most, though, was that LGBT people have no hate crime protection under Mississippi law. So James Scott was going to get off pretty easy compared to what could've happened.

That's when people in the community
