Sorry, haters, (I’m looking at you New York Magazine), but our First Lady Michelle Obama is the coolest.
Yesterday, a Vine video circulated of First Lady Obama finishing up her social media Q&A on healthy eating by doing a funny take on the turn down for what craze. Only it involved her “turning up” with a turnip.
It first started with a Vine video from actor Iman Crosson doing a pretty great imitation of her husband. “Here’s a question for the First Lady,” he asked. “On average, how many calories do you burn every time you turn up?”
Cut to Michelle Obama saying turn up? Turn up for what? And then adding the best Black girl stank face, ‘this my jam’ head nod dance with it.
When have we ever seen this before? It’s cute, it’s funny, it’s relatable and appropriate to the kids she’s trying to reach and encourage to eat healthy. Sure, it’s like watching your mom trying to be cool, but that’s the point. Michelle Obama has spent these two terms as being Mom-in-Chief, not only to Malia and Sasha, but to the nation’s children as a whole.
It will probably be a long time before we get to see another first couple having this much fun in the White House.
