After ending Tuesday’s press conference, President Obama came back to the podium to answer a question about Jason Collins:
“I had a chance to talk to him yesterday. He seems like a terrific young man and I told him I couldn’t be prouder of him. … I think it’s a great thing. And I think America should be proud that this is just one more step in this ongoing recognition that we treat everybody fairly. And everybody’s part of a family, and we judge people on the basis of their character and their performance, and not their sexual orientation. And so I’m very proud of him.”
