As Twitchy reported, the NBA’s out-and-proud Jason Collins today received both a personal tweet of support from first lady Michelle Obama and a phone call from the president himself. Obama reportedly told Collins he was “impressed by his courage.” Speaking of courage, plenty wondered when some other brave individuals (or their families, at least) would be receiving a call from the White House.
Time to put some more minutes on the Obamaphone? There are a lot of brave people out there.
