  • “Thanks for being a such a badass and one of the strongest people in the universe” he wrote on Instagram,in a post that has since been deleted.
  • In response, Clinton commented on the post, saying “Thanks, @petedavidson. This makes it significantly less awkward that I’ve had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years. But seriously, I’m honored. Merry Christmas my friend.”
  • In the comments below the tweet, Vadhan said she and Clinton, unfortunately, missed their chance to see the tattoo in real life.
  • Clinton was recently interviewed by MSNBC host Rachel Maddow where she took a jab at President Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
  • “China, if you’re listening, why don’t you get Trump’s tax returns,” she said. “I’m sure our media would richly reward you.”
  • Davidson appears on the show “Saturday Night Live,” and recently ended his relationship with Kate Beckinsale.
