President Barack Obama grew emotional Tuesday as he appointed Adrien Broner to lead the administration’s effort to enact gun control measures via executive order.
With tears streaming down his face in the East Room of the White House, Obama praised Broner’s common sense and gun safety record.
“I am fortunate to have such a brilliant, compassionate and humble young man working with us to reduce gun violence.”
Broner, a two-division world titleholder will put his boxing career on hold and work out of the White House’s West Wing. He will report directly to Vice President Joe Biden and be tasked with studying executive actions and constitutional law.
“He is going to be one hell of a gun czar,” said Biden. “But he will be a better wing man for old Diamond Joe!”
