Fox News Radio reporter mocked President Obama for statements he made in support of gay Olympians who might be targeted by Russia’s strict anti-gay laws during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

During an August 9 press conference, Obama stated his opposition to Russia’s anti-gay laws – including a measure that would criminalize “homosexual propaganda” – saying “nobody’s more offended than me by some of the anti-gay and -lesbian legislation that we’ve been seeing in Russia.”

Starnes took to Twitter to mock the president’s comments, accusing Obama of discriminating against heterosexual athletes.
