Hillary Clinton promises to investigate UFOs and possibly Area 51, she told New Hampshire newspaper The Conway Daily Sun in a totally not tongue-in-cheek interview on December 30.
With an exhortation that she’s “going to get to the bottom of it,” Clinton raised the possibility of an Area 51 “task force.”
As it goes, UFO fans should have reason to celebrate the idea of another Clinton in the White House — Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff and Hillary’s current campaign head John Podesta is a UFO skeptic and massive X-Files fan:
Podesta tweeted in February that his “biggest failure of 2014” was “once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #thetruthisstilloutthere.” The UFO voter base loves this guy.
Clinton invoked Independence Day as an example of aliens she’d like to not close encounter; which, given the former First Lady’s penchant for cameos, perhaps she’s gunning for a stroll through the sequel. Weirder things have happened.
The Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Photos via Getty Images
