The former president endorsed ‘Golden Girls’ star Betty White for President in 2016 during a pre-taped segment for NBC’s “Betty White’s 2nd Annual 90th Birthday Special.”
“At a time when our nation is so bitterly divided, it’s important to have a leader who’s won the respect and the affection of our nation in the way that Betty has,” Clinton said. “After all, she’s gained praise all the way from President Obama to George W. Of course I’m talking about Presidents Barack Obama and George Washington.”
Clinton claims “the position will come naturally to Betty as she has lived so long in a place called the ‘White House.’”
White is used to getting Presidential treatment on her birthday. Obama sent her a birthday letter last year for her 90th birthday, jokingly demanding her birth certificate, because he just couldn’t believe the actress was turning 90.
But, Obama was left off White’s exclusive guest list this year for her televised 91st birthday party.
Her star-studded party will include Clinton, Bill Cosby, Whoopi Goldberg, Blake Shelton and many others, because you only celebrate your 90th birthday once. Well, unless you’re Betty White. Then, you apparently celebrate it twice.
