Remember When Ellen Made Jenna Bush Hager Call Her Parents at the White House While on Air?


Back in 2007, Jenna Bush Hager was still just a Bush and not on “Today.” She was so young and green that when Ellen DeGeneres asked her to call her parents President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush, while on the air– she did.

At first, Jenna was nervous, “you think I’m allowed to do this? I could get in really big trouble. They’re going to kill me.”

Laura answered the phone sweetly and said, “I’m just sitting here with daddy. Daddy wants to say hi.”

From there, it got better– just two parents talking to Ellen and their “little girl.”
