President Obama on Monday "met" "Lucy," the skeletal remains of a 3.2 million-year-old precursor to humans that Obama was told makes all human beings related, including Obama and would-be president Donald Trump.
Obama was with Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, and Dr. Zeresenay Alemseged, the head of the California Academy of Sciences. Alemseged used Lucy, a female hominid, to explain how everyone in the Homo genus is related.
"Every single person, even Donald Trump" is connected, joked Alemseged, an Ethiopian native.
"That's amazing," Obama said, according to a pool report of the meeting. "So Lucy was on the chain to Homo sapiens."
