PRESIDENT OBAMA was in Austin, Texas last week, and stopped in for lunch at a popular restaurant called Franklin's Barbeque.


Footage of this hasn't surfaced yet, but he was buying food for his staff and a bunch of people he cut in front of the line.  And when he got to the counter, a 32-year-old cashier named Daniel Webb told him we need, quote, "Equal rights for gay people!"


Obama asked him if HE'S gay, and Daniel's response was, quote, "Only when I have SEX."


Obama laughed and fist-bumped him, and there's a photo of it making the rounds online.  (Check it out here.)
