Today, was a very special day at the White House as President Barack Obama presented Ellen DeGeneres, Michael Jordan, Diana Ross, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Cicely Tyson, Tom Hanks, Robert DeNiro, and others with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Ellen almost missed her shining moment when she forgot her I.D. and couldn’t get into the White House.
Of course, Ellen was finally granted access and once she was inside, she kicked off a #MannequinChallenge with the other honorees.
Check out the video below.
