Bill Clinton “Wouldn’t Be Surprised” If Aliens Existed

A visit from UFO could be the answer to world peace, he joked on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night, the 42nd President of the United States Bill Clinton dodged questions about whether his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, will make a run for the White House, but he was more than happy to discuss a hypothetical UFO invasion:

Bill Clinton: “If we were visited someday, I wouldn’t be surprised, I just hope it’s not like Independence Day, the movie, that it’s a conflict. May be the only way to unite this increasingly divided world of ours. If they’re out there, think of how all the differences among people on earth would seem small if we felt threatened by a space invader…

Jimmy Kimmel: You and Bill O’Reilly would be hiding in a bunker together.”

The interview is full of laughs, as the late-night host asks Clinton — who is now a vegan — “Which do you miss more: being President or cheese?” Tune in at the 2:20 mark below to see his answer.
