In an interview with Bill Clinton in 2015, Jimmy Kimmel asked the former president about UFOs. “If I were President–and I never will be,” he said, drawing laughter, “the first thing I would do after putting my hand on the Bible and taking that oath to serve the country, I probably wouldn’t finish the oath, I would run to the White House, I would demand to see all the classified files on UFOs….did you do that?”
Clinton, ever the politician, gave an earnest answer, admitting that he’d always had an interest in the subject of extraterrestrials and had invested considerable effort into discovering whether they had ever visited the Earth. His answer: they haven’t. Would he tell us if they had? He would.
Then he essentially restated the same weird thing Reagan said in 1987 at the United Nations — that maybe it would be better off if aliens did arrive because it’s probably the only thing that could unite the people of Earth.
