US President Barack Obama welcomed 106-year-old Virginia McLaurin into the White House over the weekend and the centenarian celebrated by dancing her way through the meeting with Barack and his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama.
Check out her moves in the video below, which was shared by the White House on Facebook. McLaurin – who was born in South Carolina in 1909 and now lives in Washington DC – was invited to meet the Obamas as part of the US’s current Black History Month celebrations. “I am so happy to have a black president and a black wife… And I’m here to celebrate black history,” said a giddy McLaurin.
Earlier this year Barack Obama backed Kendrick Lamar to beat Drake in a hypothetical rap battle. Although they are not actively in competition with one another, as two of hip-hop’s biggest names fans often debate who is better between the Compton rapper and his Canadian counterpart.
Obama is on record as a Lamar fan, stating that ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ was his favourite album of 2015 and even invited him to The White House for a visit. Lamar discussed meeting President Obama in a new PSA video for the Pay It Forward mentoring programme. The US President recently named Lamar’s ‘How Much A Dollar Cost?’, from latest album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’, his favourite track of 2015.
