On his show Thursday, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel asked the President if he had any knowledge about UFOs. President Obama fended off the questions with a series of jokes before seriously stating “I can’t reveal anything”. Watch the full video above or read the transcript available below.
Kimmel: So this is something I feel like – if I was the President – and it’s unlikely that that is ever going to happen..
Obama: You never know. It was unlikely I was gonna be President.
Kimmel: The moment I was inaugurated, my hand would still be hot from touching the bible and I would immediately race to wherever they have the files about Area 51 and UFOs and I’d go through everything to find out what happened.
Kimmel: Did you do that?
Obama: That’s why you will not be President. Cuz that’s the first thing that you would do.
Kimmel: It’s at the top of my list.
Obama: The aliens won’t let it happen. You’d reveal all their secrets. They exercise strict control over us.
Kimmel: Now you know, there are a lot of people that are gonna examine your facial expressions here, every twitch, everything and of course did you look? Did you see? Did you explore?
Obama: I…I… I can’t reveal anything.
Kimmel: Oh really? Because President Clinton said he did go right in and he did check and there was nothing.
Obama: Well you know, that’s what we’re instructed to say.
What do you think? Why wouldn’t the President want to reveal anything about aliens? Sound off below.
