Actress Aubrey Plaza, in an interview with Tyler Foggatt of the New Yorker published Friday, detailed how she crossed paths with President Joe Biden as a teenager.
Plaza, famous for her role in the series “Parks and Recreation,” detailed how she initially met President Biden at a youth conference, according to the New Yorker. The actress hails from Wilmington, Delaware, and attended the conference when she was a student.
Plaza described how she “was really angry about the conference,” telling Foggatt that she had a “stare-down with Joe Biden from the audience.” The actress was disappointed about the lack of student speaking opportunities at the conference, according to the New Yorker.
The actress told Foggatt that she raised her hand, stood up, and described the conference as “bullshit,” the New Yorker reported. She said President Biden’s face then “got really red.”

Plaza said that she subsequently met Biden years later when he was Vice President while filming a segment of “Parks and Recreation” at the White House, she told the New Yorker. She said that President Biden called her by name before telling a story about how Plaza and his first wife attended the same Catholic school.

Plaza, upon touring the vice-presidential office, found a note, apparently written by an assistant, titled “Aubrey Plaza” with a caption underneath that read “Wilmington, Delaware. You met her at the Joe Biden youth-leadership conference when she was sixteen,” the New Yorker reported. The actress then pocketed the note.
The stolen note, Plaza said, worried “Parks and Recreation” director Mike Schur, who told the actress that she “[could not] steal from the White House,” according to the New Yorker. Plaza told Schur, “I don’t give a shit! I know what he did! He didn’t know me!”
Plaza told Foggatt that she subsequently lost the note, lamenting that she “could’ve framed it or sold it” after Biden’s election, the New Yorker reported.
