Former President Obama says it was a major "screwup" of his administration that he failed to honor Dolly Parton with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
"That's a mistake. I'm shocked," Obama said Monday on CBS's "The Late Show" after host Stephen Colbert asked how it was possible the "9 to 5" singer hadn't received the country's highest civilian award.
"Looking back at your eight years, do you realize that's the mistake you made?" Colbert asked with a laugh.
"Actually, that was a screwup," Obama, promoting his new memoir, "A Promised Land," replied. "I'm surprised. I think I assumed that she had already gotten one, and that was incorrect."
