Her father, President Bill Clinton, issued a swooning statement almost immediately.

He took to Twitter to do so as well.

Most commend Collins for his honesty.

Heh.

Many greet the news with a big yawn: Why is it news?

That won’t stop some members of the media, and their attempts to treat gay people as some kind of pet, though.

Good thing he didn’t come out as a conservative. Now that would cause problems.
