Swimmer Diana Nyad

The Obamas Are

MY HOMIES NOW!

9/6/2013 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

090613_niana_nyad_launchAmerican swimming legend Diana Nyad finally returned home to L.A. last night after her historic Cuba to Florida swim ... and told TMZ she got some new "homies" after the feat ... Barack and Michelle Obama.

The 64-year-old ultra-athlete received a hero's welcome when she arrived at LAX (balloons, kazoos, posters)  ... and of course, we needed to know one thing -- how much did she pee out there??

Nyad's answer --well, let's just say she may have raised the water table in the Atlantic. 

Diana also told us about how she stayed safe from possible shark attacks. Interesting stuff.

Bottom line -- Diana's a friggin' STUD.

Congrats!!!

What a cool lady, and what a great interview! I know I criticize some of your camera guys for asking dumb questions, but I have to give you credit for this one, I really enjoyed it! :-)

Since she is not a card carrying member of the Muslim Brotherhood she will ever get a phone call or invite to the White House by the Obamas.

Barrack Obama will go down as one of the greatest presidents of all time after all the racist conservatives disappear from the face of the earth from age.
We got Healthcare for all, Saved us from Global economic collapse, got Osama and Alqeda running, saved the auto industry, stem cell research.....all the right-wing hate machine has since they cannot find anything else are phony scandals like Beghazi, IRS and NSA. Losers.

Obama sucks as a president...Why is it that if you don't like Obama...you are called a racist. How juvenile.

Is that really a woman, or is that a liberal "born a dude but we'll call her a woman since he calls himself a woman" people? Also I doubt Obamas are her homies. You know.....black people and not being able to swim................
