During a speech on Saturday at the Gridiron Dinner, President Obama poked fun at his mistake by saying:

“After a very public mix-up last week, my communications team has provided me with an easy way to distinguish between Star Trek and Star Wars,” Obama said, according to the official White House transcript. “Spock is what Maureen Dowd calls me. Darth Vader is what John Boehner calls me.”

“And in the words of one of my favorite Star Trek characters, Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise,” the president quipped, “‘May the Force be with you.’”
