Since Donald Trump joined the 2016 presidential election race, Hillary Clinton hasn’t had to be up front and center.
Most DNC strategists would say that the many gaffes from Trump, Ted Cruz, and Jeb Bush make the race to the White House more of a leisurely stroll. However, Hillary has been known to make stumbles of her own.
In fact, you could say her latest tongue-in-cheek reference was out of this world.
There she is, stumping at some random bingo hall in New Hampshire when she felt carefree and comfortable during an interview with The Conway Daily Sun. And that’s when she vowed to “get to the bottom” of the mystery behind UFOs and Area 51.
Wait, what?! Are we really giving Alien-Americans a shout-out?
The reporter of the Daily Sun, Daymond Steer, shared “Back in 2007, Clinton had said that the No. 1 topic of freedom-of-information requests that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, received at his library was UFOs.”
And then he referenced an April 2014 PC moment about said real aliens (take that, Trump) on Jimmy Kimmel:
Following this anecdote, Hillary seemed to sober up about aliens and noted, “I think we may have been [visited already]. We don’t know for sure.”
According to cnet.com, she’s being encouraged by John Podesta, her campaign chairman and a vast enthusiast of alien theories.
“He has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out. One way or another,” she told the Sun. “Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51.”
Although she may have been yanking this guy’s chain, the White House Press Corps has been spotted looking for the Loch Ness Monster, interviewing Bigfoot, and locking themselves in a bathroom waiting for Bloody Mary.
Nothing like a fake story to help stir up some real PR.
