During a recent visit to Texas, President Barack Obama made a stop at Franklin Barbecue in Austin, where he ordered a ton of meat and was seen giving a cashier one of his famous fist bumps.
That cashier — Daniel Rugg Webb, a comedian and part-time employee at Franklin Barbecue — told the Austin Chronicle the fist bump was a reaction to a SGL sex joke:
As the president approached, Webb threw his hand down and slapped the counter dramatically. “Equal rights for gay people!”
“Are you gay?” the president asked.
“Only when I have sex,” [Webb said.]
“That’s when he laughed and said, ‘Bump me,’” Webb says.
Webb said “it was just a lucky day to be the register girl” when the president, who reportedly ordered more than $300 worth of food for both his crew and the people he cut in line, visited the restaurant.
In June, Obama announced plans to sign an executive order that would ban workplace discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees of federal contractors, saying it’s “wrong” that some states still allow people to fire or harass employees solely based on their sexual orientation.
During his visit in Austin, Obama spoke about the ongoing border crisis and addressed Republicans’ recent claims he should be impeached.
