President Obama Jokes About Mixing Up "Star Wars" and "Star Trek"

President Obama Jokes About Mixing Up "Star Wars" and "Star Trek"Submit Comment
During a recent speech, President Obama mixed up "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" when he said that he would have to use a "Jedi mind meld" to convince Congress to do what he wants. The problem is that is a "Jedi mind trick" and a "mind meld," which are from two different franchises.

Obama has now spoke about the mix-up, stating: "After a very public mix-up last week, my communications team has provided me with an easy way to distinguish between 'Star Trek' and 'Star Wars,' Spock is what Maureen Dowd calls me. Darth Vader is what John Boehner calls me."

Boehner is the Republican House Speaker, while Dowd is a NY Times journalist.

Obama joked: "And in the words of one of my favorite 'Star Trek' characters -- Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise -- 'May the force be with you.'"

F*ck I care if he doesn't know his Star Trek from his Star Wars!

Actually, it would bother me if he did know all those nerdy references...that stuff should be last on his mind. F*cker needs to get back to work...

If a bunch of broken promises and an economy in the toilet didn't get people mad enough at him to vote him out, I doubt this slip up would have much effect at all, even if his team didn't come up with a witty recovery.
