Michelle Obama likes vegetables. She likes vegetables a lot. Some might say far too much—especially considering this new evidence.

The White House released a Vine on Tuesday night of the First Lady of the United States of America dancing with a turnip. The dance break was inspired by a question from well known YouTuber and Viner AlphaCat, who often does impressions of President Barack Obama.

The results are nothing short of amazing

Just to clarify, Michelle Obama sent a Vine to a YouTuber who impersonates her husband, and in this Vine FLOTUS dances with a turnip to the tune of summer anthem “Turn Down for What.”
