When former President George W. Bush appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday, to promote his book, Portraits of Courage, Kimmel didnt waste any time trying to get Bush to admit that he may have looked for and seen alleged secret government files on UFOs.
Kimmel began the interrogation by asking Bush a question thats very important to me and very important to the country. When you were in office, did you go through the secret files the UFO documents, because if I was president, that would be the first thing I did.
Even before Kimmel finished asking the question, Bush immediately replied, Maybe. Then, he told Kimmel, You know, its funny. My daughters asked the very same question. When Kimmel asked if Bush would be allowed to tell his daughters what was in those files, the former commander-in-chief said No.
Now that youre out of office, you can do anything you want, right? Kimmel pressed.
True, yeah, Bush said, adding, But Im not telling you.
Kimmel: Youre not telling me what? Are you not telling me that you looked at them?
Bush: Im not telling you nuthin!
The brief UFO secret files portion of the conversation ended when Kimmel asked Bush if there were really great secrets that the former president knows that he cant share with people. Bush confirmed it and indicated he would never divulge those secrets at any future point in his life.
This was hardly the first time that Kimmel has gone digging for UFO-alien revelations with presidential personalities on his show.
In 2014, President Bill Clinton told Kimmel that when he was the leader of the free world, he tried unsuccessfully to investigate what the government was hiding regarding UFOs. When Kimmel asked if he would have told the public had he found evidence of real aliens, Clinton smiled and said Yeah.
Then, in 2015, during a visit to Kimmels talk show, President Barack Obama in tongue-in-cheek fashion said the aliens wont let [disclosure] happen. Youd reveal all their secrets, and they exercise strict control over us. I cant reveal anything.
During Hillary Clintons 2016 bid for the White House, she made several comments throughout the year about her intent should she be elected president to make government UFO files available to the public.
If there is something there, unless its a threat to national security, I think we ought to share it with the public, she told Kimmel.
In the latest interview with Americas 43rd president, while it was obvious that Bush and Kimmel treated the UFO subject in a very lighthearted, friendly way, the former president never actually suggested there were no UFO files to be unearthed.
Kimmels determination to raise the UFO issue to previous occupants of the White House seems to leave one relevant interview target on the TV hosts radar: the current president of the United States.
Now that would be something to watch.
