You could probably say that Ahmed Mohamed is having the time of his life right now. The science enthusiast recently met co-founder Sergey Brin at the Google Science Fair, received an awesome package from Microsoft that included a 3D printer, and will soon be hanging out with President Barack Obama at the White House.
Last night, he made an appearance on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore to talk about his infamous arrest in Irving, Texas and the comedian didn’t hold back. “Be honest, keep it 100. Was it a little cool to be arrested?” Wilmore asked in a clip uploaded to Facebook.
“It was kind of cool,” Mohamed responded while laughing. “The only reason I felt cool about it was because I knew I was innocent and I knew that if I did take it to court, I would win.”
It’s good to see that the experience hasn’t altered his sense of humor. Meanwhile, his family has hired legal counselors who are working to ensure that his clock is safely returned from the Irving Police Department before his big meeting with the president.
