After being asked to released his birth certificate repeatedly, President Barack Obama decided to place that tiresome question on TV icon Betty White Monday evening.

In a star studded celebration of her 90th birthday, Obama delivered the humorous message in a pre-recorded video.

“Dear Betty, you look so fantastic and full of energy,” he said. “I can’t believe you’re 90 years old. In fact, I don’t believe it! That’s why I’m writing to ask if you would be willing to produce a copy of your long-form birth certificate? Thanks and Happy Birthday, no matter how old you are.”
