You can’t blame a guy from trying, over and over again.
On his show Thursday, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel asked President Barack Obama to come clean about UFOs. The president responded with a series of tongue-in-cheek remarks, which can be seen in the video above.
Last year, Kimmel broached the subject with former President Bill Clinton. He posed the topic of supposed UFOs and aliens at Nevada’s top secret Area 51 military base in exactly the same way with both presidents. . . .
. . . Kimmel opening statement to Obama on March 12:
“If I was the president… 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. DID YOU DO THAT?”
Obama response: “That’s why you will not be president, because that’s the first thing that you would do.”
During this short exchange, Obama fired back with more potentially provocative comments.
“The aliens won’t let it happen. You’d reveal all their secrets, and they exercise strict control over us,” Obama said. “I can’t reveal anything.”
When Kimmel pressed Obama, telling him how Clinton claimed to have looked into government files on UFOs and found nothing, Obama replied, “Well, you know, that’s what we’re instructed to say.” . . .
