At 106 years old, she’s seen more than a dozen presidents come and go, but Virginia McLaurin says she can finally die happy after meeting President Barack Obama. Video of the centenarian shaking her groove with the president and his wife quickly went viral on the Internet after last week’s Black History Month reception at the White House.
‘I’ve come a long ways, a long ways,’ McLaurin said in an interview outside her Washington home. ‘I just didn’t think I’d ever live to go this far in the world.
An African-American lady, Virgina McLaurin, has said her meeting with the United States’ President, Barack Obama, is a minute she has yearned for in her life.
The 106-year-old lady hit the dance floor with Obama and the First Lady, Michelle, at the White House, saying she had thought she would never have the open door.
A video that caught the meeting demonstrated the lady flanked by the Obamas, as they hit the dance floor with her and they speaked. She said she had come to observe Obama for leaving a mark on the world as the primary dark President of the US.
The video, posted on the White House Facebook page on Sunday, had more than 17 million perspectives by Monday morning, VOA reports.
McLaurin said, “I thought I would never live to get in the White House. I’m so glad. A dark president … his dark wife. I’m here to praise dark history. That is what I’m here for. It is a honor.”
The President, who was hypnotized by the lady’s move, communicated his enjoyment at facilitating her.
“She’s moving at 106. We’re happy to have you here,” he said.
Michelle, who was additionally excited by her move, wished to be as solid as the guest when she gets to be old.
She said, “I wanna be similar to you when I grow up. We’re upbeat to have you here. We’re cheerful for you
