President Barack Obama congratulated Michael Sam on Saturday for being the first openly gay football player taken in the National Football League draft, the White House said in a statement.
"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," Obama said. He also congratulated the NFL and the St. Louis Rams, the team that drafted Sam.
Sam, an All-American defensive end who played for the University of Missouri, made history when he was picked by the Rams in the seventh and final round. He was the 249th of 256 players selected.
The 24-year-old got the news by telephone from Rams' coach Jeff Fisher, who told Sam: "You are a Ram. The wait is finally over."
Sam, who was filmed by ESPN as he got the call, broke down in tears in the arms of his boyfriend. "Thank you," he could be heard saying to Fisher....

Kneepads for everyone!
zer0 paying lip service to this fag, before he pays lip service to him....
win win for the cork soaker in chief...
Did mac daddy invite him to his favorite bath house?
More fundamental transformation of America......
Eeeeeew. This is grotesque on so many levels ...
Obama gave him a congradulatory BJ.
“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,” Obama said” . . .
as Obama judged him to be extra special and make a big deal about what he IS.
~~~Sam, who was filmed by ESPN as he got the call, broke down in tears in the arms of his boyfriend~~~
As it was in the Days of Lot, so shall it also be the days of the Son of Man (paraphrased).
Obama is a sicko....just like these fags.........
Now this is important! a man who is celebrated for having sex with another man. The term being gay is the pretty and nice packaging that surrounds and encases the real act. These happeneings are celebrated as being heroic, courages and an inspiration to us all. There is a mental desease that inflicts those of us who once had a working mind.
I didn't think so.
Precisely. I’m very certain Hussein didn’t call the other athletes who likely could “do” the job better than the level Sam is capable of.
That’s funny. He’d be on the phone day. Wasn’t this guy deep into the 200’s?
It would have been better for this guy to keep his mouth shut and come out when he made the team.
I am willing to bet there will be outrage when he is sent to the practice squad on September 1st.
Now we will have to suffer with all of the Rams pre season games.
Indeed. Evil is rampant. Every day I “Look up.”
King Obozo has lust in his heart.
"Gay" is what he does - having oral and anal sex with other men. It's not what he "is."
Two-forty-nine out of two-fifty-six. Methinks the league exercised a little pressure to get him selected. What team would willingly put this guy in their locker room? At best he’s practice squad material.
Did he call all the other players? If not, why not?
The question can become, will his teammates play their hearts out supporting him, or can they help make him look bad?
He should have kept his mouth shut instead of making the draft about him.
Guess the NFL now stands for National Fag League.
Obama congratulated a kindred spirit, and notably, no other draft pick.
Let’s face facts.....Michael Sam is not an extremely talented player. He may have never been drafter, but he has an edge....a nation obsessed with everything except the content of his character.
Second, CNN and other liberal media put this out to make Obama look compassionate and conservatives as bigoted. You know a talking head will ask if Boehner or any GOP leader congratulated Michael Sam, implying homophobia....even if those GOP leaders sent out the politically correct statement.
Osumbo and Sam......”Birds of a feather....”
Well...he can handle a ball....appearently that’s what’s important.../s/z
To be fair, the viewing public doesn't care much about the content of any other player's character, either, but only about his performance as an entertainment figure.
Evil days in America.
All the more reason to watch the NFL even less than I already do.
He will likely be in the ‘Hall of Fame’ by the end of the week.
Bread & Circuses
There’s a video of MS reaction...but I doubt it will last long if I post it.
Michael Sam, Is he a tight end ? wide receiver?
I can't imagine where you'd get an idea like that...
Will this idiot ever shut up ?
I’m sure Bath House Barry wants to get a “piece” from him
Since Barry is now openly gay.
Guess who I’m talking about.
Well ain’t that so special.
*broke down in tears in the arms of his boyfriend.*<(
Saddens me too. We (the majority of this country) are denigrated by this. This would be best left alone by all, each to his own, don’t ask don’t tell, anything goes, whatever... just get it out of my face!
It insenses me that this POS does nothing but spend time worrying about fags, minorities, illegal aliens and every other bunch of out of the main stream elements of our society while the entire country is falling down on so many fronts. As some commentator said last week, he should spend less time owrrying about the NBA and more time worrying about Putin.
Obama didn't really mean that.
The Rams now have a player they cannot get rid of.
Shouldn’t a faggot footballer play for the “Packers”?
Obama: “My tender lips are sweeter than Honey!”
( Wolverton Mountain is now Broke Back Mountain)
(The Hood: “ What it like, white boy, havin’ an in yo face black qeeyah fo’ pressydent?”)
I was taking my mom out to eat seafood and it was repeatedly running on the screen....absolutely foul. They are trying to pass a homofascist ordinance here in Houston to add insult to injury.
So much hoopla over a guy that isn’t that good. From the amount of coverage he has received, you’d think he would be the greatest defensive end since Bruce Smith.
Thank you, President Marxist. Officially, we now may root against the Gay NFL Guy.
“”””””He will likely be in the Hall of Fame by the end of the week.””””””””””
He is getting the Super Bowl Trophy on Monday.
Well, the rump rangers hold the reigns of power, even though they make up like 1.7% of the population.
Don’t speak ill of them. If you do, you will have your stuff taken.
