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.

I could care less if gay people marry. What about Syria, China, N. Korea, jobs, IRS, spying on US citizens, jobs, etc. If you're gay and want to marry all the power to you, but it's not gonna matter much if we keep going this direction, stay single and don't have kids so you can afford Obamacare.

Truth is, If we were all gay, the human species would die off. The fact that if we were all homosexuals would cause our extinction makes it perfectly valid to say that it is unnatural. Sorry, it is science.
