Today, comedian Pete Davidson shared a really cool letter that he received from former President Bill Clinton for his success as one of the latest featured cast member of Saturday Night Live.
Davidson was born the same year Clinton took office, which is a somewhat weird idea to comprehend. Clinton read about Davidson’s history – a native New Yorker who lost his firefighter father on 9/11, who began comedy and is now a breakout cast member on the New York institution known as Saturday Night Live. Just some New Yorkers doing very New York things.
I recently read an article about your career and deep family connection to service in the city. As a fan of Saturday Night Live, I want to congratulate you on joining the cast-I can only imagine how excited you must be, both as a comedian and lifelong New Yorker.
All my best wishes for continued success.
Just got this in the mail today. Holy shit! Thank you so much Mr. Clinton! pic.twitter.com/3Aq6SNz72E
