President Biden gave a very 'strange' gift to Olivia Rodrigo

On Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday, pop star Olivia Rodrigo sat down and discussed, among many things, a trip she made to the White House over the summer to help get the word out to young people about the COVID-19 vaccine. She said that everyone she got to meet there was “so kind,” including President Biden and Dr. Fauci.

“The White House is just the coolest place. I was so nervous to go,” Rodrigo said. “But I, like, walked in there, and there is like all these plates that like George Washington used to eat his dinner on. And all of this crazy stuff. I was like, scared I was going to sneeze and break a priceless artifact. It was crazy. But I walked out, didn't break anything. Thank god.”

And while she didn’t break any priceless artifacts, she arguably walked away with a few. Because in a photo with President Biden, both he and Rodrigo are wearing a pair of his signature aviator sunglasses. So Kimmel asked if that was something he gave out, or if she brought her own.

“He gave them to me, actually,” Rodrigo said. “He gave me a few gifts. He gave me those. He gave me some M&Ms, and he also gave me a shoe horn, which is strange.”

Host Jimmy Kimmel was rather shocked by Rodrigo’s gift admission and had trouble keeping his laughter contained.

“Well, if you ever thought Joe Biden was too old to be president. Now we know he is,” Kimmel joked. “He is giving out shoe horns.”
