Turnip in hand, first lady grooves to ‘Turn Down for What’

First lady Michelle Obama has focused much of her time in the White House on instilling better eating habits in Americans.

She took a new angle to this task Tuesday, dancing to Lil Jon’s ubiquitous “Turn Down for What” melody after asking Vine viewers, “Turnip, for what?” with a turnip in hand.

The social media post comes in response to the question of another Vine user, a Barack Obama spoof act named Alphacat, who asked the first lady how many calories are burned every time a turnip is eaten.

Pretty clever reply, White House people.

But really, turnip? For what?
