Why Is Michelle Obama Dancing With a Turnip on Vine?

Pin It

Not only is our First Lady beautiful and smart, she's also very funny!

Michelle Obama was hosting a Q&A on Vine where people could submit questions about her Let's Move campaign using the hashtag #AskTheFirstLady.

One user impersonating her husband and President Barack Obama decided to try being funny with the First Lady, by asking: "On average, how many calories do you burn every time you turn up?"

Of course, he was referencing Lil Jon's hit song "Turn Down for What?".

And the First Lady's response was nothing short of perfectly amazing. Sasha and Malia's mom held an actual turnip (get it?) and quipped, "Turn up...for what?" before busting out some dance moves as the hit played in the background.

Well played, Michelle, well played.
