Congrats to Ellen DeGeneres, one of the proud recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The funny thing is - she almost didn't make it there:
Not only did she finally make it in to the White House, she was overcome with emotion while accepting her honor. But soon she was back to her funny self and even managed to pull off a White House Mannequin Challenge!
Congrats again, Ellen! And to all the other recipients.
