Why should that make us proud?
The news that Robin Roberts is gay is about as shocking as water being described as wet.
First Lady Michelle Obama congratulated ABC’s Robin Roberts after the “Good Morning America” anchor came out as gay.
Roberts came out in a Sunday Facebook post in which she reflected on the past year, thanking her loved ones — including her “long time girlfriend, Amber” — for supporting her during her battle with myelodysplastic syndrome.
“I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together,” Roberts wrote.
The First Lady said she is “so happy” for Roberts and her girlfriend, who “continue to make us all proud.”
