President Obama's schedule Monday included lunch with Vice President Joe Biden, meetings with his Treasury and Defense secretaries, and interviews with a handful of local news anchors.
He also found some time for Betty White.
A White House official confirms that the 90-year-old actress spent a few moments with the president, characterizing it as a courtesy call while she was in town to speak at the Smithsonian.
And to say thank you for being a friend? The "Golden Girls" star has said she's firmly committed to the Democrat's reelection this year.
Photos of White getting a tour of the White House grounds, and even petting first dog Bo, were posted on the website of Roanoke, Va., television station WDBJ.
Earlier this year Obama filmed a birthday greeting for White that aired during an NBC special.
"You look so fantastic and full of energy, I can't believe you're 90 years old. In fact, I don't believe it," he said --- asking to get a copy of her birth certificate.
