Is Santa Claus an American citizen?
Mr. Heyman said the United States is conducting a study to determine how far into the Arctic the U.S. continental shelf extends.
“If we were to succeed in this process, in terms of our claim, would that mean that Santa Claus is an American citizen?” the New Jersey Democrat said, deadpan.
“It is my understanding that Santa … is a citizen of the world,” he said.
“You have displayed your diplomatic abilities in an extraordinary fashion,” Mr. Menendez said as he closed the hearing.
