Barack Obama says there are things he “can’t tell” people about aliens.
The former US President has hinted that he knows about extraterrestrial life but is unable to reveal any information to the public.
Speaking during an appearance on ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’, Obama said: “When it comes to aliens, there’s some things I just can’t tell you on air.”
Obama explained: “When I came into office, I asked, is there the lab somewhere where we’re keeping the alien specimens and spaceship?
Obama continued by joking that Watts himself might be “deflecting” by asking the question in the first place.
“I think that people still take seriously trying to investigate and figure out what that is. But I have nothing to report to you today — unless … See here’s the question: Reggie might secretly be an alien,” Obama joked. “Right? You remember Men in Black? So when he asks all these questions, he’s deflecting? Do we know what he looks like behind those glasses? His eyes might blink in the wrong direction.”
“We can’t explain how they moved, their trajectory. They did not have an easily explainable pattern.”
Obama added that investigations are being conducted into these sightings, but there is “nothing to report” at the moment.
He also revealed that he had been taken aback by the positive reaction of the public after the family announced the passing of their dog Bo earlier this month.
Obama said: “On our social media accounts, as you might imagine, sometimes the comment sections are less than friendly.
In April, the US Department of Defense confirmed that footage of a blinking, pyramid-shaped object mid-flight is legitimate, and was taken by Navy personnel in 2019.
Pentagon spokeswoman Sue Gough told CNN at the time that the videos — along with photos that depict three other UFOs — are part of its “ongoing examinations” of UFOs (which the government refers to as “unidentified aerial phenomena.”)
The Department of Defense created the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force in August to investigate such sightings and the U.S. government is expected to release a detailed report about UFOs on June 1.
