Following President Barack Obama's comments that he is unable to "do a Jedi mind meld" on those who are holding out on a budget cuts deal, the White House released this image on Twitter:
Underneath the picture of Obama is written, "To deny the facts would be illogical" and a link to wh.gov/jedimindmeld - which links through to the White House's page on the sequester.
While "Jedi" comes from Star Wars, the "mind meld" is featured in Star Trek.
