NEW YORK, Feb. 22 (UPI) -- Willie "Boss Hog" Robertson said he ran into President Barack Obama and caught up with him at the State of the Union Address last month.

In an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," the reality television star said he met up with the president at the speech as he attempted to get on an elevator.

"The president's walking down the hall. And he sees me and he goes, 'Willie, what's up?' " Robertson recalled. "I'm like, 'Hey, what's up?' So we're talking, and we're having this conversation."

Robertson said he and the President first met at the White House Correspondents' dinner.

"The last time I met him, at the Correspondents' Dinner, I had a tux on," Robertson said. "He's like, 'Where's the tux?' I'm like, 'This is my State of the Union attire.' "

Robertson and his wife were invited to attend the State of the Union address by his friend Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La.
