President Barack Obama touched on one mistake, or “screwup,” as he called it, during his eight years in office while appearing on CBS's “The Late Show,” hosted by Stephen Colbert on Monday. 

During a segment of the show called, “Questions We’re Pretty Sure Barack Obama has Never Been Asked Before,” Obama was hit with softball questions about his favorite Monopoly playing piece, and whether he prefers Dairy Queen Blizzards or Wendy’s Frosties before getting a more serious curveball.

When asked about why the famous country singer/actress Dolly Parton hadn’t received a Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, Obama explained how he personally felt about this decision. 

“That's a mistake. I'm shocked," Obama said on the show. 

"Actually, that was a screwup. I'm surprised. I think I assumed that she had already gotten one, and that was incorrect,” he continued.

Parton, who last week donated $1 million to COVID-19 vaccine research, has used her fame to champion philanthropic endeavors late in her 10-time Grammy Award-winning career. She also made a successful crossover to Hollywood in classics like "Steel Magnolias" and "9 To 5".

Among those who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom  from Obama during his eight years in office were Barbra Streisand, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Gloria Estefan, Bob Dylan, James Taylor and more, according to the Hill. 

Some Twitter users agreed that she has deserved this award for a long time.

Others praise Obama for stepping up and admitting to his mistakes, even if they happened years ago. 

Neither Obama, President-elect Joe Biden nor Parton have released any statements about this recent interview or whether the award might be handed out once Biden takes office. 

"She deserves one. I'll call Biden," Obama concluded.
