I do, however, have to give serious props to President Obama for this:
During a May visit to the White House by the actor Will Smith and his family, Obama was quizzed by Smith’s 13-year-old son, Jaden, about the possibility of extraterrestrial life. In an interview with the BBC, Smith recounted Obama’s reaction to his son:
“OK, I can neither confirm or deny the existence of extraterrestrials,” Obama reportedly said from the White House Situation Room. “But I can tell you if there had been a top secret meeting, and if there would have been a discussion about it, it would have taken place in this room.”
That is *exactly* the Mess With People’s Heads answer I would give if I were the President. High comedic fives, Mr. President!
