President Obama Congratulates Michael Sam

President Obama congratulated Michael Sam on becoming the first openly gay player to be drafted into the National Football League. Sam was picked up by the St. Louis Rams.

Here's the President's statement via the White House:

“The President congratulates Michael Sam, the Rams and the NFL for taking an important step forward in our Nation’s journey. From the playing field to the corporate boardroom, LGBT Americans prove everyday that you should be judged by what you do and not who you are.”

Exciting time, Instincters!
