Michelle Obama adds to support for Robin Roberts as the “Good Morning America” anchor publicly comes out, and talks about her “longtime girlfriend” Amber Laign in a Facebook post, according to a Dec. 30 Huffington Post report.
First Lady Michelle Obama tweeted, “.@RobinRoberts, I am so happy for you and Amber! You continue to make us all proud. -mo”
As the Examiner previously reported, Roberts posted a photo of her dog KJ and wrote a reflective message on the social media site. “I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together,” she wrote.
