Barack Obama regrets not giving Dolly Parton Presidential Medal of Freedom

Everyone makes mistakes, even former presidents.

Barack Obama confessed that he regrets not giving Dolly Parton a Presidential Medal of Freedom during his eight years in office, telling Stephen Colbert on Monday night’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” that it was a “screw up.”

Colbert, 56, asked Obama, 59, how the country star does not have a Presidential Medal of Freedom after all of her humanitarian work. Most recently, the “9 to 5” singer, 74, donated $1 million to scientists working to develop a COVID-19 vaccine.

“That’s a mistake — I’m shocked,” Obama replied. “That was a screw up. I’m surprised. I think I assumed that she had already got one, and that was incorrect.”

But, maybe his Vice President and now President-Elect Joe Biden can remedy the situation when he takes office in January.

“She deserves one,” Obama said. “I’ll call Biden!”
