Barack Obama Likes Dumbledore, But Offers Him His Privacy

Back in January, Obama got some attention when he revealed how much he loved HBO’s The Wire, and that his favorite character was Omar:

Dumbledore“I gotta say Omar’s a great character. That’s not an endorsement. That is not an endorsement. He is not my favorite person. But he’s a fascinating character. He’s this gay gangster who only robs drug dealers, and then gives back. You know, he’s sort of a Robin Hood. And he’s the toughest, baddest guy on this show, but he’s gay, you know. And it’s really interesting. It’s a fascinating character.”

Now, in a new interview about his kids, Obama reveals his fondness for another gay character, though this time around he’s not so open to talking about the character’s sexuality:

“His favorite Harry Potter character may be Dumbledore (he won’t comment when it’s mentioned that the headmaster of Hogwarts may be gay.)”
