Is President Barack Obama smarter than a seventh grader? When it comes to Mars, apparently not. On Tuesday, Obama revealed that he did not know that there were storms on the Red Planet.
While interacting with a seventh grade math class at Buck Lodge Middle School in Maryland during a discussion about the Mars Rover, a student told Obama that there were tornadoes on Mars.
“They’ve got storms there? Now that I did not know,” Obama said, according to pool reports.
What did Pres Obama learn today. Was told there are tornadoes on Mars. “They have storms? I did not know that,” he said.
