Pete Davidson’s seemingly inexplicable streak of pulling impressive women into his orbit continued this week with Hillary Clinton

After reportedly splitting with actress Kate Beckinsale and bailing on a stand-up gig at the last minute when the crowd turned against him, the “Saturday Night Live” star was due for a win.

Enter Clinton, who apparently ran into Davidson after an appearance on “The Rachel Maddow Show” at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, which houses NBC studios for both the news program and the late-night sketch show. 

The two posed for a photo together outside the downtown Manhattan building, adding another entry in the annals of their already storied friendship. 

Clinton has long been a “hero” to Davidson, who supported her in the 2016 presidential election and even tattooed her likeness on his right leg as an early Christmas 2017 gift to himself. 

“Thanks for being such a badass and one of the strongest people in the universe,” he wrote about the tattoo in a now-deleted Instagram post. 

And Clinton responded with nothing but love for Davidson, joking that it “makes it significantly less awkward that I’ve had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years,”

“But seriously, I’m honored. Merry Christmas my friend,” she added. 

“[Clinton] saw Pete’s Instagram post on a flight back from L.A. to New York and replied from her account,” a Clinton spokesman said at the time. “And that is correct, while she is fond [of] Pete Davidson, she has no tattoos of him … yet.”

The two also met up at Aretha Franklin’s funeral in August 2018, when he was a somewhat controversial plus one for then-girlfriend Ariana Grande. The comedian and the pop star posed for photos with Bill Clinton. 

While Grande and Davidson are no longer together, it’s nice to know his relationship with Hillary Clinton is everlasting.
