Leave it to an intrepid youngster to play journalist and ask President Obama for the real truth.
Politico has the report from actor Will Smith. Smith, whose alien flick Men in Black 3 comes out May 25, was touring the White House, son Jayden in tow.
Men in Black” star explained, “The night before, Jaden had said to me, ‘Dad, I gotta ask the president about the aliens,’ and I was like, ‘Dude, no, no, it’s not cool. No, it’s not cool, it’s embarrassing. … Do not ask the president!’”
“So we get into the Situation Room and Jaden gets the look in his eyes and he leans over and he says, ‘Dad, what’s my punishment?’” Smith said. “… And Barack is starting to talk about this Situation Room and Jaden says, ‘Excuse me, Mr. President?’”
To Smith’s surprise, Obama anticipated the question.
“Barack said, ‘Don’t tell me,’” he recalled. “And in perfect form — like this is why he is the president — he stopped and looked at Jaden and said, ‘The aliens, right? … OK, I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of extraterrestrials but I can tell you if there had been a top secret meeting and if there would have had to have been a discussion about it, it would have taken place in this room.’”
