ABC's Robin Roberts: 'I'm Getting Chills' While Discussing Obama's Gay Marriage Announcement

News

"You never know what he's going to say until you ask him."

First "thrills" and now "chills?" President Barack Obama certainly has a penchant -- or, at the least the ability -- to create quite an emotive experience for some of the journalists and talking heads who cover him. MSNBC's Chris Matthews, of course, experienced the infamous "thrill" before the 2008 election. Now, ABC News' Robin Roberts says the president gave her a "chill."

Unless you've been living under a rock -- or you've been too busy to pay attention over the past 24-hours -- Obama announced his personal support for same-sex marriage. But what you might have missed is the power that his words purportedly had over Roberts, the journalist specifically chosen by the White House to give the president a platform for his announcement.

Real Clear Politics provides a recap of Roberts' description of the emotions she felt during her dialogue with Obama:

"Whatever people think about this issue, we know it's controversial, there's no denying when a president speaks out for the first time like that, it is history," co-host of ABC's "Good Morning America" George Stephanopoulos said to Robin Roberts.

And let me tell you, George, I'm getting chills again," "Good Morning America" co-host Robin Roberts said about her interview with Obama.

"When you sit in that room and you hear him say those historic words. It was not lost on anyone in there right there. You never know what he's going to say until you ask him," she added.

Watch Roberts make these comments, below:
