Posting to his official Twitter account this Friday, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson wondered how a hypothetical president Donald Trump would react versus a hypothetical President Hillary Clinton in the event that human beings make contact with alien life forms.
“If a Space Alien landed in the USA & requested: “Take me to your leader”, I wonder how Pres Trump would react vs Pres Clinton” Tyson tweeted.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling saw the tweet as a perfect setup for a joke, and responded accordingly.
Afraid we need to know whether the alien has breasts before we can answer. https://t.co/xHE9K5F7xt
