Some people wait a lifetime! A 106-year-old woman named Virginia McLaurin danced with joy while meeting President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle this weekend in the White House.
A sweet video from the encounter shows McLaurin vivaciously walking into the room to meet with the couple. She then squeals and laughs with delight. “It’s an honor, it’s an honor,” she tells President Obama, who then brings over his grinning wife.
“She’s 106!” the president proclaims of his adorable guest.
“No, you are not!” yells Michelle, who gives McLaurin a hug and holds her hand affectionately. “Oh, my goodness! I want to be like you when I grow up.”
The Obamas then dance with her in the middle of the Blue Room, and the three roar with laughter. “I thought I would never live to get in the White House,” says McLaurin, who was there for Black History Month. “And I tell you. I am so happy: A black president.”
