On MSNBC this morning, liberal political activist Van Jones said that President Obama wouldn't lose support from the black community even if he came out as gay.
During a segment on gay marriage, anchor Alex Witt asked Jones if Obama, "would lose some of the black vote if he did come out in support of gay marriage."
"I think if he came out as gay, he wouldn't lose the black vote," Jones said with a chuckle. "President Obama is not going to lose the black vote no matter what he does."
Van Jones was appointed as the "green jobs czar" for the White House Council on Environmental Quality but he eventually resigned after it was revealed that he had previous ties to the radical 9/11 truther movement.
