President Obama sat down with Jay Leno yesterday for a late night TV interview on The Tonight Show. And it might actually be one of the most interesting segments we’ve seen yet!
While the two discussed a myriad of topics, the TV host made sure to ask the commander-in-chief for his thoughts on Russia’s current anti-gay laws, to which the President responded PERFECTLY:
”I’ve been very clear that when it comes to universal rights, when it comes to peoples’ basic freedoms, whether you are discriminating on the basis of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation, you are violating the basic morality that I think should transcend every country. I have no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them.”
Ch-ch-check out President Obama’s complete response…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Bravo, Mr. President.
