Obama’s sudden revelation: ‘I am not a dictator, I’m the president’

Powered by Topple

vPresident Obama has gone and done it now. He offended both “Star Trek” and “Star Wars” fans Friday, when he said he was unable to perform a “Jedi mind meld” on the GOP over sequestration.

Outraged science fiction fans took to Twitter to bash the president’s obvious confusion about a Jedi mind trick and a Vulcan mind meld. There is no such thing as a “Jedi mind meld,” you see.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer provided an in-depth analysis of the president’s sci-fi gaffe.

Obama also reminded the press, and maybe himself, that “I am not a dictator, I’m the president,” when explaining how negotiating with Congress has been difficult.

Those who didn’t tweet about the Jedi mind meld had a field day tweeting about the dictator comment.

Politico posted some of the better tweets about Obama:

‪@daveweigel Jedi mind TRICK, not meld. Impeach this clown.

‪@TheFix Obama lost the Star Wars vote with that “Jedi Mind meld” gaffe.

‪@mikememoli One for the books: || WASHINGTON (AP) – Obama says he can’t do ‘Jedi mind meld’ and persuade Republican leaders to do what’s right.

‪@CatholicDems Or maybe that is Nerd-in-chief? Anyway, there’s no such thing as a Jedi Mind Meld.
