Unable to contain her excitement Mrs McLaurin held her arms in the air and danced excitedly when introduced to the American President and First Lady.
A video posted of the 106-year-old’s visit to the White House shows Ms McLaurin tell Mr Obama, “’s an honour” before eagerly making her way over to Mrs Obama, prompting the President to tell her “slow down now, don’t go too quick, she’s 106!”
The Obamas, then danced away with Ms McLaurin before she told the 54-year-old: “I thought I would never get in the White House.”
