President Obama

Victory Phone Call to Gay Marriage Leaders

Caught On Tape

6/26/2013 9:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Cool moment captured on live TV ... when two of the pro gay marriage plaintiffs in the anti-Prop 8 case got an unexpected congratulatory phone call from President Obama ... moments after today's historic Supreme Court ruling.

Kris Perry and Sandy Stier were giving a live interview on MSNBC ... when someone ran over with a cell phone and said Obama was on the line.

The phone was quickly switched to speaker ... and everyone listened in as the Commander-In-Chief congratulated the two on a job well done.

In fact, one of the people huddled around the phone invited Obama to the wedding.

Very cool moment.

Heterosexuals are just mad because now they know what it's like to be in the minority. Hate bash all you want, but you're juvenile comments on a gossip site will not reach the masses, nor will it hinder progress.

He calls to congratulate the gays,which is fine, but he didn't have the time to call Benghazi to make sure our americans were ok after they begged for help and never got it? After they were dragged thru the streets, sodomized, burnt, and beaten to death waiting on help from the US..that never came...or no phone call. This gay news must be more important I assume.

I say who cares? Let the gay community be as miserable in marriage as the rest of us are. All this fighting for what? Equality? Hahahaha! Whatever! When the break ups and divorces happen, you will hear a different tune being sung. We all want what we cannot have UNTIL we get it, then it loses it's magic and luster. Welcome to the real world gay community. Misery is now all yours. Enjoy! Cheers!

People comparing beastiliaty, and pedophalia to homosexuality? Are you serious? Beastiality is the act of having sex with ANIMALS. Pedophalia is the act of having sex with CHILDREN - who, mind you,have no say in the matter. Homosexuality is an act between two loving and consensual adults. Why do you all care? Why are you upset? It's pathetic to see the world we live in. It's 2013. But what do I expect from a country built upon hate and discrimination.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, YES!! We as a forward-moving country will NOT be going backwards, no matter what you knuckle-dragging neanderthals wish for this country. We're well beyond that now.

Too bad Obama doesn't care about GMO Monsanto and how they have taken over food supply, shape policies, and seem to have a pass on health care issues.....the GOP is just as bad- doesn't anyone care about GMO food, High fructose corn syrup?? etc
YOU will when you have type 2 diabetes

Victory to the death of democracy annd the majority is now a powerless voteless voiceless second class Victory for the death of the Constitution as it required you AMEND it to add new provisions and was never intended to be a gray area for the oracles of the democrat party to interpret to claim it "implies" whatever they want.

This is how real fundamental rights and the Constitution die in America. With thunderous applause.
