Betty White, the star of many TV hits such as “The Golden Girls” and currently TV Land’s “Hot In Cleveland,” has the ear of the most powerful man of the world: President Obama.
White went to the White House on Mon., June 11 and told The Huffington Post it was exciting to meet with the president.
“It was a thrill to be with Mr. Obama,” White said in a phone interview, “but the big thrill was being with Bo, their dog. He’s the cutest guy you’ve ever seen in your life. I spent a half-hour with him on my lap.”
There’s even video of White and Bo hanging out on the White House lawn together. It doesn’t get much more adorable than that.
White spoke to The Huffington Post from Chicago where she is helping celebrate the 25th anniversary and grand reopening of the Museum of Broadcast Communications. The TV icon spoke candidly about her lengthy career, recent TV projects and supporting gay marriage.

Oh no, I didn’t taste myself, but it was phenomenal. It was absolutely life-size and even the chefs that made it were so thrilled with it that they couldn’t stop taking pictures of it. Even the fingers and everything — it was all cake and frosting. And the expression looked so much like me. It was mind-boggling! I go out to the kitchen to feed the dog, but that’s about as much cooking as I do.
Now, you had the cake and the roast and you’ve also gotten a wax figure, a baby orangutan This article originally appeared on: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/12/betty-white-gay-marriage-obama_n_1591477.html
