Petitions to the White House have been in the news quite a bit lately, as everything from secession to deporting a TV news personality has been submitted to the government. One such petition, though, is making headlines not only because of its content, but because of the White House’s cheeky official response. After drawing more than 34,000 signatures, the White House was legally obligated to respond to a petition to “secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.”
Proving it has quite the sense of humor, the White House has released an official statement cleverly titled “This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For” that turns down the proposal in pretty spot-on fashion. Hit the jump to see what they had to say.
