ABC has released the following excerpts from ‘The View”s exclusive interview with President Barack Obama, recorded today and airing tomorrow, May 15 on ABC at 11 am ET:
BARBARA WALTERS: Let’s move it along a little bit. You did make that historic decision to say that you’re in favor of gay marriage. There are 30 states which are not. But there are also federal laws that impinge on the rights of gays. They can’t file a joint income tax report; they don’t have social security that they can pass to each other. Will you now fight for a federal bill that gives the same rights to heterosexuals that the federal bill now does not give to gays?
