WATCH: Michelle Obama Dances with Turnip to Vulgar Rap Music

First Lady Michelle Obama is an embarrassment to America. She has no class, and doesn’t hold a candle to former First Lady Laura Bush.

So is it any surprise she would be on the White House Tumblr, dancing with a turnip, to promote her school lunch control regulations?

In case you just fell off the turnip truck, it’s a play on words of Lil Jon’s “Turn Up for What.” If that doesn’t make sense to you, here is how Urban Dictionary defines “turn up”:

1) Getting loose, being wild and potentially engaging in sexual activity with members of the opposite gender (or the same gender if that’s what you’re in to)

2) Acting crazy due to consumption of large amounts of alcohol, marijuana, molly or other drugs

And Erza Klein’s left-wing Vox explains in more detail:

In order to explain “turn down” you have to first understand turnt or turnt up. That’s slang and a way for people to say that they’re having a really good time, sometimes with the help of alcohol or weed.

If being turnt up is so fun, why would someone want to turn (turnt) down?
That’s the point.

“Turn down for what” is a song about keeping the partying going. “Fire up that loud/Another round of shots” is Lil Jon telling you or someone to keep the party going. (Loud is slang for good quality marijuana.)

“Turn down for what?” is a rhetorical question. There’s nothing, at this moment in time, that’s worth coming down from this high, Lil Jon feels. What would make you want to sober up instead of being drunk/high/having a good time?
