Spock Obama is .\V/ulcan!

Recently in Newsweek, POTUS mentioned that he saw the new Star Trek movie — and why not?  “Everybody was saying I was Spock, so I figured I should check it out and—[the president makes the Vulcan salute with his hand].”

Apparently, POTUS loved  Star Trek while growing up “You know, Star Trek was ahead of its time. There was a whole—the special effects weren’t real good, but the storylines were always evocative, you know, there was a little commentary and a little pop philosophy for a 10-year-old to absorb.”

So in the spirit of the final frontier….I present to you: Spock Obama, himself.

One last morsel of geek-in-chief — when Obama met Leonard Nimoy (a long time Obama supporter), he threw up a Vulcan sign!
