Woman, 106, dances with joy at meeting the Obamas



She squealed with delight. She waved her cane in the air. And she danced — busting moves that have made her the newest Internet darling.

In a video posted by the White House Sunday night, McLaurin opens her arms wide, greets Obama with an excited “Hi!” and begins swaying.

“It’s an honor, it’s an honor,” she tells the President. McLaurin was at the White House to celebrate Black History Month.

Obama asks if McLaurin wants to meet the first lady and the answer is an obvious one. As she rushes over, Obama, who appears amused, says, “Slow down now. Don’t go too quick.”

Michelle Obama is in disbelief when her husband mentions McLaurin is 106.

“I wanna be like you when I grow up,” Michelle Obama tells her.

“You can,” McLaurin replies.
