White House Mannequin Challenge with Diana Ross, Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Gates, Robert De Niro, My Mom, and Me!

Yesterday, my family was at the White House to see my dad get the Medal of Freedom. Tracee Ellis Ross decided that while we were waiting before the ceremony, we should do a #mannequinchallenge. I was trying to film it, and ended up being in it myself! You can see Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Bill Gates, Robert De Niro, Diana Ross, Ellen DeGeneres, and my mother (with the glasses) and me (at the end)!

Check out the ceremony, especially the President’s opening remarks, and enjoy his gracious, thoughtful, wise, and hilarious comments on the awardees. And just be grateful for the extraordinary generosity, devotion, and contributions of these 21 people receiving our nation’s highest honor.
