Ellen DeGeneres denied entry into the White House after forgetting ID for Presidential Medal of Freedom
Ellen DeGeneres was denied entry into the White House.
The comedian and talk show host was scheduled to receive a Presidential Medal of Freedom on Tuesday, but shared that she was stuck waiting outside because she forgot her identification.
DeGeneres tweeted a photo of herself sitting on a bench with the caption, “They haven’t let me in to the White House yet because I forgot my ID. #NotJoking #PresidentialMedalOfFreedom.”
Luckily, she later gained entry into the celeb-studded affair and she proved it by posting a mannequin challenge video about an hour later.
The openly lesbian comic is one of 21 recipients who are scheduled to receive the honor, including other celebrities like Robert De Niro, Robert Redford, Lorne Michaels, Diana Ross and Bruce Springsteen.
