Following the news that actress Betty White had passed at 99-years-old, Fox News’ Kayleigh McEnany issued a heartfelt tribute.

McEnany declared in a tweet, “Betty White was an American icon with an infectious spirit and a zest for life.”

White was 17 days away from her 100th birthday and planned a big celebration.
