Aravosis on Hardball talking Obama and LGBT equality

John was on MSNBC tonight talking about Obama and LGBT equality. HRC’s Fred Sainz was apparently on the show to defend the Obama administration. And, as you’ll see, Ron Reagan, Jr. was actually a more forceful advocate for LGBT equality than the representative of the biggest LGBT advocacy group. Funny, how only one of those three guests gets paid to actually be an advocate.

After the interview, a straight friend who is a kick-ass politico, IM’d me this: “It was embarrassing. Everything Sainz said was couched as a defense of the White House.” Well, HRC has already endorsed the Obama reelection campaign. So, maybe Fred sees himself as a surrogate now. It sure appeared that way.
