Obama Admits He Messed Up By Not Giving Dolly Parton The Medal Of Freedom

Barack Obama has told Stephen Colbert that Dolly Parton not having a Presidential Medal Of Freedom is a “mistake”.

On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, they ran a segment called Questions We’re Pretty Sure Barack Obama Has Never Been Asked Before.

He ran off pretty standard questions like the age old, “what goes in a toaster?” Before swiftly asking, “How does Dolly Parton not have a Presidential Medal Of Freedom?”

“That’s a mistake,” Obama says.

“Yes,” responds Colbert quickly.

“I’m shocked… That was a screw-up. I’m surprised. I-I think I assumed that she had already got one. And that was incorrect,” said the former US President.

“She deserves one. I’ll call Biden.”

Dolly Parton has well and truly earned herself that Medal Of Freedom. We recently found out Parton donated a huge $1 million to the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine research.

A true queen.

Obama recently gave Drake the all clear to play him in a film about his life. “That is a talented, talented brother,” Obama said of him.
