( 4UMF NEWS ) Betty White Endorses Obama For Re-Election:
For Betty White, President Obama is just golden.
The 90-year-old “Golden Girls” actress “very, very much favors” the commander in chief for a second term, she told the Associated Press on Friday.
Though White said she generally stays away from politics to avoid alienating any of her fans, she likes what Obama has done and “how he represents us.”
White continues to land starring roles and earn comedic kudos in a career that spans nearly three-quarters of a century.
In 2010, the “Hot in Cleveland” star became the oldest person to host “Saturday Night Live,” an appearance that earned White her seventh Emmy.
White’s memoir, “If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won’t),” won a Grammy in February for “Best Spoken Word Album.”
White is the latest in a series of celebrities to back the President.
More than 150 stars, including actors Robert Downey Jr., Tobey Maguire, Eddie Murphy, Billy Crystal, Salma Hayek and Jack Black attended a $40,000-a-person fund-raiser for Obama at George Clooney’s Los Angeles mansion on Thursday.
