Obama Writes Supportive Letter To 10-Year-Old Bullied For Having Two Gay Dads

10-year-old Sophia now has an unlikely pen pal in Barack Obama. Sophia wrote the following to the President:

“I am so glad that you agree two men can love each other because I have two dads and they love each other, but at school kids think that it’s gross and weird, but it really hurts my heart and feelings…”

The Commander-in-Chief answered her letter with one of his own, offering a few kind words of encouragement and support:

“In America, no two families look the same. We celebrate this diversity. And we recognize that whether you have two dads or one mom what matters above all is the love we show one another. You are very fortunate to have two parents who care deeply for you. They are lucky to have such an exceptional daughter in you.”

If he isn’t re-elected President, can we at least vote for Barack Obama to be our dad?

    Awesome letter. Obama is a good man, and a strong leader, exactly what America needs. The world doesn’t need another religious despot throwing the economies of the world into more disarray, it’s been hard enough in the 4 years since the war criminal and domestic terrorist sympathiser GWB was kicked out.

    The same letter from Romney would quite simply put “You want into the American dream? that’s $10million, also you have two dads, I wouldn’t even give them birth certificates, sickos”

    The sad fact is that our President even has to compete with the trash-laden Republican/T-Party thugs to begin with. Maybe after this election the Republican party will regain control of their hijacked party and once again become respectable!

    Nice publicity stunt. I’m sure he writes drone attack victims too.
