Obama calls to congratulate veteran NBA star Jason Collins who today announced: ‘I’m gay’
WASHINGTON — A groundbreaking pronouncement from NBA veteran Jason Collins — “I’m gay” — reverberated Monday through Washington, generating accolades from lawmakers on Twitter and a supportive phone call from President Barack Obama.
Hours after Collins disclosed his sexuality in an online article, Obama reached out by phone, expressing his support and telling Collins he was impressed by his courage, the White House said. Collins, 34, becomes the first active player in one of four major U.S. professional sports leagues to come out as gay. He has played for six teams in 12 seasons, including this past season with the Washington Wizards, and is now a free agent.
Collins’ declaration in a first-person account posted on Sports Illustrated’s website garnered particular attention from Democrats, many of whom have recently announced their support for gay marriage despite opposing it in the past. Obama announced his support last year during his re-election campaign.
Isn’t Obama a closet gay? Didn’t he indulge in gay sex while he was in college? There is a reason he’s reaching out, maybe he wants some too! LOL, Collins is now a Free Agent…… Yeah, I bet he is!
