President Obama Wishes Betty White A Happy Birthday [VIDEO]

Wait For It...


Comedian/actress Betty White is celebrating her 90th birthday today and we salute her. NBC held a huge party that aired last night with cameos from Mary Tyler Moore, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Carol Burnett, Ellen DeGeneres and Hugh Jackman just to name a few. But, there was also one very special birthday greeting from President Barack Obama. Take a look at what he had to say.

This one goes out to our very own birthday girl, Jamie Frevele, who shares her birthday not just with White but also First Lady Michelle Obama, Andy Kaufman, James Earl Jones, Eartha KittZooey Deschanel, Jim Carrey and seemingly tons of other famous people. Jamie, you are destined for greatness.
