The joke is 'couldn't get any gayer'.
Back in the day 'gay' meant stupid or ridiculous. Like "why are you wearing that shirt? It's so gay." or "That really is a gay hairstyle. Do something
with it." "Dad, I'm TOTALLY not going bowling with the family. That's so GAY."
Took me FOREVER to stop using 'gay' as 'stupid/ridiculous/idiotic' etc. xD Same way as 'retarded' meant 'totally completely stupid'. The two words
were interchangable. "My parents won't let me go to the dance. This is SO retarded!" "that movie was beyond retarded. It was completely gay."
But yes, it's a pun on words. "I didn't think Obama being for gay rights could get any gayer" or however he put it.
Hope that clarifies it.
