For ages, mankind has wondered whether we were alone in the universe or if perhaps there was extra-terrestrial life on some distant planet in the far reaches of outer space. Well wonder no more, boys, because we are definitely 100% for sure not alone and the truth is totally out there and here is Agent Jaden Smith with the proof (via Wonderland Magazine via Celebitchy via Lindsey Weber’s Tumblr):
“I like aliens!” he says. “I think aliens are really cool, because they exist.” He’s got proof. On a trip to the White House with his dad (Men In Black superstar) Will, mother Jada and sister Willow, he found himself in the President’s Situation Room.
“I talked to President Obama about extraterrestrials. He said he could neither confirm nor deny the existence of aliens, which means they’re real. If people think we’re the only people that live in this universe, then something is wrong with them.”
I feel like it goes without saying that you’re pretty convinced of the existence of aliens when your dad is one of the world’s most famous Scientologists, right? I’m not even taking a swipe at Scientology, I am literally just pointing out that it’s a foundational precept of that “religion” (OK, that was a swipe) to believe in the existence of aliens. Aren’t there, like, aliens riding around in our blood stream? Saddled to our cells with tiny magic lassos or something? And we have to get rid of them in a conference room? The Obama thing really seals the deal, though. Why would Barack Obama say that to Jaden Smith? Sure, Jaden Smith just happened to “find himself in the President’s Situation Room” (?!?!??!?!) and casually asked “are aliens real” and Obama made a cute comment because he knows how to deal with children. But also CAUGHT. You caught, Obama. This is proof positive. Take it to the bank. Tell the scientists to put down their microscopes because we’re all done here. You tried your best, nerds, but Jaden solved it. CASE CLOSED.
