Video: Jon Stewart brilliantly sums up the Michael Sam NFL situation

Joseph McCormick February 11, 2014

Missouri All American and NFL draft hopeful Michael Sam came out as gay in interviews on Sunday, and Jon Stewart has already weighed in on the situation – in the most succinct and eloquent way possible.

In the video, Stewart shoots down every argument against gay players being accepted in the NFL, and even goes further to question the “controversy” NFL teams would dodge by not signing Sam because of his sexuality.

After assessing Sam’s athletic record, Stewart jokes: “it’s as though sexual orientation has nothing to do with physical strength.”

Just check it out – it is worth it.
