President Obama finally called the McNair school clerk who talked down a school shooter. The president called Tuff after he was dragged on Twitter.com for calling to congratulate Jason Collins, a gay NBA bench player.
Obama called Antoinette Tuff a Hero during a surprise phone call Thursday evening. He thanked Tuff for courageously saving the lives of hundreds of school children.
"Here is somebody who is not just courage, not just cool under pressure, but also had enough heart that somehow she could convince somebody that was really troubled that she cared about him," Obama said, according to CNN.
"I think we might have to have her maybe make a visit to the White House," Obama said.
