Betty white “Primarily because every single time I see Betty White, or I hear Betty White, I am like, ‘Why don’t we get more of Betty White?’ She really is -- people use the word loosely, but she truly is -- an icon, and she’s a sharp old broad. She’s just so, so cool, and I can’t imagine anybody opposing Betty White hosting SNL. Who would that person be? Where would that person live? Seriously! I mean how many people can you name who have across the board appeal, from toddlers to old people? I mean if someone doesn’t like Betty White, you know that person has to hate sunshine and puppies. She’s stood the test of time, and she just keeps on going, and she’s just, she’s a delight every time you see her.”
