First, she became proud of her country. Now, she’s proud of openly gay NBA player Jason Collins:

They’ve “got his back.” That, of course, may be contingent upon a few things:

Heh.

While plenty of FLOTUS’ fans are impressed:

Not everyone is clear on why Collins’ revelation warrants special recognition from the First Lady:

https://twitter.com/melissa5001/status/328984171143909376

Good for Collins. Really. But there are men and women who face true hardships on a daily basis, who literally put their lives on the line. Perhaps we’ll assign more value to FLOTUS shout-outs when she acknowledges their contributions to our country and gives them the respect they deserve.

Update:

Collins has reportedly received one of President Obama’s coveted phone calls:

How nice for him. Nice to know the president’s priorities remain in tact:

Maybe if Terry had been a gay professional athlete.

And exactly what we’d expect from our illustrious leader.

    Guys. I have an announcement. I’m ready to come out and say it. I am straight. Can someone put me on TV? I would like to talk about how being straight has made me feel, how it has impacted my career and how my coworkers responded to my being straight.

    What do you mean you are not interested?!?!?? I thought we were all completely defined by our sexuality now and that we were supposed to emote about it for the cameras. I’m so confused…

    Also, is it really that BRAVE to come out as gay when announcing you are gay is more likely to get you an invitation to the White House and a standing ovation by the entirety of the major media than it is to result in anyone actually being mean to you? I mean, it is kind of like coming out and admitting that you are in favor of puppies or something.

    • Cruz2016!!!

      NOw, it would be brave if he came out in let’s say….Iran

      • Ken Alan Draper

    So, Jason Collins coming out is a big step forward for our country…what was the bombings in Boston for our country FLOTUS?

    • CDUB

      Once again LD – Nail on the head. The terrorist attack on Boston is greeted by a sigh with this regime. Fundraising, trips and parties must go on. No reassurance from Barry, we are safe. Bush, love him or hate him, was a sincere leader and clearly had the American peoples back after 9/11 – W made me feel safe. What, 1 speech from Barry after Boston? Impeachable, me thinks.

      • misterp

        He was not a sincere leader! STOP with the Bush love. He WAS NOT NOR HAS HE EVER BEEN A CONSERVATIVE!! Spending=through the roof, not to mention FACTUAL corruption in the wars we were engaged in and he and his VP handling the military contracts for everything from vehicles,food! He stomped on our constitution and made Obama possible. Now instead of a ‘public servant’, we have a King! SO THANKS sincere leader, Bush,who probably destroyed our country! They both SUCK, neither are sincere about anything! Obama does the MAXIMUM damage he can, which is more because he is black and gets that free pass!! Bus did the MAXIMUM he could also. They both want a New World Order! They call for it BY NAME. Bush Sr. famously coined the term (presidential speech staring the Gulf) Bush let 130+ Saudi board planes DIRECTLy following 9/11 when all other planes were grounded and let them escape the country! He was flanked by CAIR durring his “evil men” speeches. Look up how many of the hijackers were SAUDI nationals :) Than NEVer praise Bush or Obama again!

    Hey FLOTUS ,I am heterosexual and white! Got my back?
    Just wanted to say that once. Actually I don’t expect you to care about either,and you should not ,it is personal. I don’t care about anyone’s sex life except mine and those I love.
    How pathetic that someone, that is in no danger in this society, feels he has to stand up and say I am gay, and the media, you and our President thinks this is important. Especially when those killed in Benghazi tried to tell you they were in danger and you all went to bed.
    There is so much more you and hubby should care about. I’ll give you some hints . Jobs,1 in 5 children in poverty and American’s being killed at home and abroad, the national debt. Please at least try to exhibit some common sense, truth and caring about someone except folks who present us with TMI re their sex lives and choices in life that we really do not care about.

    The Obama’s are just stooges who think they are living in the 1970s. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman practically begged for a player to “come out.” Anyone who does come out will appear to be universally celebrated in our culture. If people do have a problem with his sexuality, they are already bullied into keeping that to themselves by the gay agenda h8 mongers. Barack and Michelle think they are leading “the struggle”. So Barry fights for abortion rights when 1/3rd of the babies are already aborted and Michelle has some no name, over-the-hill hoopster’s “back”, because of course, we are all victims of the man. Does she think he is going to lose all of his endors…ha, ha, ha! What the what? Real brave guy there.

    And, Mrs. Obama…..could you go ahead and tweet your support to the families of the Americans who were murdered in Benghazi, please?

    Yawn! Other than running school lunch programs and bullying individuals that have a BMI she detests, it is right in line that she would support Collins choice to no longer keep his private life private. Think she could find time to support the struggling families that have been out of work for far too long or at least push her husband to do his Presidential duties. All talk, no action unless it harms the country.

  • Raye09

    I support gay rights, but I really don’t see what the big deal about this is. It’s not like he is the only sports figure to be openly gay(there were plenty before him). There are plenty of people that are gay be it celebrities or everyday people that don’t feel the need to “come out” because they want to be known for talent, not their sexuality. Campaigns like NoH8 and people like Dan Savage actually cause more damage with their over-zealous, hostile and intolerant behavior. Celebrating someone coming out actually does more harm, it takes the focus off of them as a person and puts focus on their sexuality(I thought it was all about accepting people as they are and for their achievements, not just because they are gay).
    There are plenty of other people and events for Obama to cover, and plenty of other people to congratulate(like the soldiers coming home from Afghanistan). I don’t think the Obamas really care, it’s just that more info on Benghazi and the incompetence that lead to it are coming out, as well as this administrations failure to see and act on the warning signs of the Boston bombings, and they want to take attention off of it.

    They have your back unless they name you ambassador to Libya, then you’re on your own.

    Why does any political figure, much less the president or his wife, feel the need to call or comment on this? I just don’t get it. It is moments like this that makes me question being in the military and being a pawn for our piss poor excuse of a federal government.

    I wonder if the Obama’s will praise Chris Broussard for openly speaking about his Christ based morals and beliefs the way they have openly supported Jason Collins extremely risky lifestyle.

    Obama has his back as he asks for a reach around while the FLOTUS sets up the video. I feel like live in a Stanley Kubrick movie….. What insanity.

    “We’ve got your back!” says Michelle..Does she have any idea how WILDLY INAPPROPRIATE it is for her as First Lady to make such a remark? Pedestrian meet Vulgar.
