Gay Missouri football star Michael Sam, who came out last night, has some high-profile new fans today. First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden both tweeted him personally-signed messages of support.
From the First Lady:
You're an inspiration to all of us, @MikeSamFootball. We couldn't be prouder of your courage both on and off the field. -mo— FLOTUS (@FLOTUS) February 10, 2014
And from the Vice President:
Thank you, Mr. Vice President and Madame First Lady, for once again standing up for LGBT equality!
