Even with all the whole thing about the cigar and Monica Lewinsky, we like former president Bill Clinton. Aliens talk and all. Maybe even especially because he seems to believe in visitors from outer space, as he made clear on his recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
In his interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday, former president Bill Clinton said he had made sure to research Area 51 “to make sure there was no alien down there.” To be honest, that’s probably one of the very first things we would do if elected president. Even though we doubt the ultra secret black operations department in charge of alien conspiracies would tell us if there were aliens “down there” or anywhere. If aliens do exist, the president probably doesn’t know about it!
Still, Bill Clinton told Jimmy Kimmel that if he had found out about any aliens, he would totally spill the beans on that. We kind of believe he’s telling the truth. After all, Bill Clinton’s not really the best person to keep secrets, or engage in illicit alien activities. He couldn’t even keep his secret extra-marital affairs from going public with the full backing of the White House public smoke machine behind him!
Fully supporting our own thoughts that we aren’t alone in the universe, Bill Clinton said “if we were visited someday, I wouldn’t be surprised.” While the idea of alien visitors is exciting, we agree with Bill that we “hope it’s not like Independence Day” although, as the ex-president said, “[an invasion] may be the only way to unite this increasingly divided world of ours… think of how the differences among people of Earth would seem small if we feel threatened by a space invader.”
Honestly, we’d probably all end up killing each other off in a massive nuclear throw-down while trying to blast the space invaders off the planet. That’s humanity for you. Why get together when you have a brand new excuse to blow each other up?
