Gay NBA Player to Sit with Michelle at SOTU

Jason Collins, the first male athlete in a major sport to come out as gay, has been invited by First Lady Michelle Obama to sit with her during the State of the Union speech Tuesday.

Collins, who played for 12 seasons, announced that he is gay in April 2013, earning praise from President Obama.

Also in the First Lady’s Box for the speech will be two survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing; a fire chief who rescued survivors of the tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma; the 2013 District of Columbia public school Teacher of the Year; and the 16-year old inventor of the “marshmallow canon.”

  1. We have a rare chance of snow again! I will be watching the weather, I promise I will pop in on this extremely imformative speech, Ha! I will have to pop in to see if he has his Pen and Phone in hand. I trust he won’t, he does not want to look tough and in uniform while giving the speech.

  2. She could have invited everyone in America who has actually paid for their Obamacare health insurance and still had a seat open for the marshmallow cannon inventor.

  3. “Collins, who played for 12 seasons, announced that he is gay in April 2013, earning praise from President Obama.”

    Praise for what? Being homosexual? Keeping it quiet for 12 years? Coming out?

    • I start the weed eater all by myself, even though it hurts pulling the string. Now for goodness sakes, I think I deserve a seat there as well. sarc
      On a serious note: I would rather see a WWII Vet sitting in one or more of those seats. That should be reconized. Same time I would like to see how long our Vet would sit there, before he got up and walked out on him. That would show a very good point to the American people.

    • On a different thread there is an article I just read that one of his announcements will be that several company’s signed a pledge not to discriminate hiring long term employees.
      As far as in your face socialism comment, Agree….

    • Good point. Last year, the widow of Steve Jobs was sitting next to FLINO. This year, Obama is the laughingstock of Silicon Valley. What a difference a year makes.

      • The basketball player is over the hill and wasn’t picked up by a team in the NBA so the Obamas may be trying to find a niche for him. Plus, they can claim that the NBA is anti-gay because no one hired him.

  4. It would be interesting to interview the past props suckers dupes who have had the dubious honor of sitting next to Mooch during one of Preezy’s demagogic performances. Betcha most were dumped as soon as the cameras stopped rolling. One year the two civilian police officers who stopped the Ft. Hood jihadist’s murderous rampage were sitting next to Mooch. They both lost their jobs shortly thereafter. The female officer has spoken out against the treatment the victims of Nidal Hasan have received from this corrupt regime.

  6. And speaking of Oklahoma, Congressman (R) Jim Bridenstine will host Charles Woods, father of Ty Woods, Benghazi victim left behind to die by the President of the United States and the Secretary of State at the SOTU.

    Of course, this will be covered by every member of the MSM with as much admiration as the ever so courageous gay ball player.

  7. I fail to see how being gay gets you a seat next to the 1st lady during the SOTU speech. Is this man one of the top 10 heros of our nation? This must be a typo.
