Forrest meets the President because he's a college football 'all star' (an utterly stupid, banal, asinine change to the story) ...personal comments are unnecessary..Forrest meets President 3 times. All Star Football player, Medal of Honor from Vietnam recipient and member of championship ping pong team that went to China
