Ellen Brought To Her Feet, Saying Thanks To The President
Ellen gave President Barack Obama a standing ovation on her show today for his powerful words of support for marriage equality. The statement is the first definitive support from the White House and the first open support of gay marriage from ANY president in history. While he maintains that individual states should maintain control over the issue, his statement is a powerful push in the right direction.
In other words, a VERY big deal. Especially in an election year. Unprecedented. Wow.
“I know that there’s going to be a segment of people for which, no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest. But I’m speaking to the vast majority of people, as well as to the press: we do not have time for this kind of silliness. We’ve got better stuff to do. I’ve got better stuff to do.”
