Michelle Obama Spoofs ‘Turn Down for What’ with a Turnip | Watch



Michell ObamaHow cool is First Lady Michelle Obama? Very cool!

The First Lady of the United States is probably the only First Lady we know who can make dancing with a turnip look cool.

Michelle Obama is always advocating for healthy foods and for people to eat more vegetables. So in a fun vine video, playing off the 2014 hit song “Turn Down for What” by Lil Jon and DJ Snake, Michelle Obama cleverly changes the song’s words to “turnip for what” while bobbing her head.

According to reports, the video was in response to a President Barack Obama impersonator, Alphacat, who asked the First Lady via Vine: “How many calories do you burn every time you ‘turn up’?! #AskTheFirstLady #LetsMove.”

The White House responded with the Vine of the First lady, saying “Hey, Alphacat. The First Lady wants to know… #TurnipForWhat ? #AskTheFirstLady #TD4W.”

It’s not every day that the world gets to see the First Lady dancing to a hip-hop song.

      Did Bill Clinton play the saxophone with sunglasses on David Letterman’s show? I believe he won because he was in touch with the masses.

      Your statement indicates that you do not understand the message she passed ACROSS.
      That’s why those “WHITE” first ladies you mentioned are not as fit as Michelle. Is that also a race thing?

    This is so cool! They are making this office of the President to be so close to a common man. It’s just a title…we are all citizens. Thumbs up
