Last Thursday, President Obama was invited to the Ellen DeGeneres Show in which both President Obama thanked Ellen for her important role which allowed changes in point of view, and both Ellen thanked President Obama for what he has done, particularly in terms of LGBT rights.
They talked about marriage equality and the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and the support of the Obama administration for the policy to be deleted and allows homosexual people to openly serve in the military.
For his part, President Obama has not been outdone in terms of praise for Ellen DeGeneres. He has spoken about her courage when she came out in 1997 and became the first media representation of the community.
Here is an excerpt from the conversation between President Barack Obama and Ellen DeGeneres:
