Actor Kal Penn, who has worked for President Obama in the White House, told the audience at the Democratic National Convention that the President is “cool with all of us getting gay-married.”

Actor Kal Penn, who served as President Obama’s associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, took a shot at Clint Eastwood’s send up of President Obama last week by thanking Obama for the policy decisions he’s made over the last three years.
“My favorite job was having a boss who gave the order to take out bin Laden, and who’s cool with all of us getting gay-married,” Penn told the Democratic convention in Charlotte, N.C. “So thank you, invisible man in the chair for that … and for giving my friends access to affordable health insurance and doubling funding for the Pell grants.”
“I’m volunteering again because my friend Matt got a job at a Detroit car company that still exists, and Loren can get prescriptions that she needs,” he said. “I’m volunteering because Josiah is back from Iraq, Chris is finishing college on the G.I. bill, and three weeks ago, my buddy Kevin’s boyfriend was able to watch him graduate from Marine Corps training. That’s change.”
Kal Penn played Dr. Lawrence Kutner on “House” and Kumar Patel in “Harold and Kumar.”
