Journalist Katie Couric met with actress Betty White earlier this month to talk about the entertainment legend’s secrets for her longevity. One of White’s tips for a long, happy life included a positive outlook.
During the interview marking White’s 95th birthday, Couric tried to goad White into saying something negative about President Donald Trump.
It didn’t work.
When Couric asked White about the state of our nation and how divided it’s become, White agreed that it was divided but added that it wasn’t a reason to be negative. Instead, it was a reason to be positive.
Couric continued on the subject, noting that “there’s so much negativity from the highest office in the land,” and wondered if some people could even be positive.
But White had her answer.
“So many people think negatively. It’s like, ‘Oh, you know what I hate?’ Instead of, ‘All right, I”ll get through this, but you know what I love?’” White said. “Then all of a sudden you start lifting up a little bit. But, if you start with, ‘You know what I hate,’ you’re gonna go right down the tubes.”
It’s not surprising to see a member of the mainstream media encouraging someone to say something negative about Trump, but White would have no part of it.
White, who told Couric she was a “cockeyed optimist,” said in a separate interview with WABC-TV that focusing on the positive instead of the negative has allowed her to live a long life.
She should know. At 95, the actress shows few signs of slowing down or turning into a curmudgeon.
Take a look at part of White’s interview with Couric below:
White’s advice couldn’t be more apt. Most of the hate in our society comes from Democrats who are still trying to cope with their losses in the election.
The left tried winning the election on hate, and it didn’t work. They continue to try to keep the country divided by focusing on hate. They claim Trump and Trump supporters are hateful but, over the last few months, they’ve shown the world what hate looks like.
They would do well to follow White’s example and try to be positive for a change.
