NBA Champions the Cleveland Cavaliers visited the White House Thursday, where besides meeting with President Barack Obama the team got a chance to score two mannequin challenges with First Lady Michelle Obama.
The team posted the video, sadly not soundtracked by “Black Beatles,” tweeting “Freezing our @WhiteHouse visit in time forever with @FLOTUS!” Iman Shumpert, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love are all seen, with founding father George Washington watching it all go down in the background, before the camera pans to Lebron James taking a selfie with FLOTUS. And behind them? J.R. Smith, wearing a shirt this time, trying to get in on the photo.
Lebron James would later post a second White House mannequin challenge, the ultimate flex, dubbed the "Official Lebron James version."

First Lady Michelle continues to give the U.S. reasons she will be missed. Remember when she expertly slam dunked her way into a video bomb when 2013 NBA Champions the Miami Heat, then armed with Lebron James, visited the White House? Then there was that time FLOTUS advised Golden State Warriors' Steph Curry on how to trash talk the president when playing golf.
The presidential spin on the mannequin challenge is a welcome bit of fun after the election results, which both Lebron James and J.R. Smith reflected on in Instagram posts.
See if you can spot which Cav can’t hold it together above.
