Hillary Clinton is urging Joe Biden to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to legendary entertainer Dolly Parton.
"@JoeBiden, please get this done," she tweeted Wednesday. Clinton linked to a CNN story about former President Barack Obama wishing he had awarded Parton the medal.
Obama had appeared on CBS' "The Late Show" on Monday. Host Stephen Colbert asked how it was possible she had not been awarded the medal — the nation's highest civilian award.
"That's a mistake," Obama said. "I'm shocked. Actually, that was a screw-up," he continued. "I'm surprised I think I assumed that she had already gotten one, and that was incorrect. She deserves one. I'll call Biden."
President Donald Trump awarded the medal to legendary football coach Lou Holtz on Thursday.
