Thank goodness. There were rumors earlier today that the United States might miss out on the greatest meeting of scientific minds since that selfie of President Obama, Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson was taken.

Why downplay the possibility? As Twitchy reported, Ahmed Mohamed’s smiling selfie with Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes in Darfur, might have proved problematic.

Speaking of stars, remember when A-list celebrities like George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, and Don Cheadle put their star power to work to push the #NotOnOurWatch campaign against atrocities in Darfur? Good times.


He won’t get to show his “cool clock” to the president, but will Mohamed at least get to add another selfie to his collection of world leaders? It’s not quite a selfie, but it is a shot of President Obama and Clock Kid.

Why stop at one exclamation point, Ken?
