Barack Obama reportedly admitted the existence of UFOs while answering a question about 'dem aliens' and 'UAFs' during an appearance on 'The Late Late Show with James Corden'. He further shed light on the rumored existence of a secret lab where alien specimens are kept. While he laughingly answered the questions about UFOs and aliens, Obama confirmed seeing footage of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), which cannot be explained rationally.

The former President said, "What is true... is that there's footage and records of objects in the skies that we don't know exactly what they are." He continued, "We can't explain how they moved, their trajectory… they did not have an easily explainable pattern." According to Daily Mail, the 44th POTUS admitted that UFOs must be taken seriously as there are objects with better speed and maneuverability than anything in the US military.

Does Obama believe in aliens?

During his appearance on James Corden's late-night show on Monday, May 18, 2021, Barack Obama was asked about aliens and UAPs by musician Reggie Watts. Watts asked if he has a theory about all the talk about aliens and UFOs. While responding to his question, Obama mentioned, "When I came into office, I asked, right, I was like alright, is there the lab somewhere where we’re keeping the alien specimens and space ship? And you know, they did a little bit of research and the answer was no."

He laughingly refuted the rumors around a Roswell-style secret lab that houses alien specimens, But he told host James Corden, "When it comes to aliens, there are some things I just can't tell you on air."

Prior to the James Corden show, Obama also talked about UFOs in December 2020 during the late-night talk show with Stephen Colbert. Barack Obama's remarks about UFOs come just days after a 2019 video went viral recently, showing a UFO buzz a US stealth ship in San Diego, before diving underwater. According to former US Navy Lieutenant Ryan Graves, his fighter squadron spotted such spherical flying objects in the restricted airspace near Virginia, almost every day from 2015 to 2017. 

'Of course, Obama wants to talk about UFOs!'

Obama's admission about UFOs drew a mixed bag of reactions from Twitter users. Newsmax White House correspondent Emerald Robinson criticized his politics, saying, "Of course Obama wants to talk about UFOs! He doesn't want to talk about the first few months of the awful Obama-Harris-Biden Administration, that's for sure."

"Obama has entered the UFO chat. “We can’t explain how they moved... their trajectory...” tweeted Gadi Schwartz from NBC News. "Important to note that AATIP existed under Obama’s presidency but the stigma around UFOs prevented chains of command from taking #UAPs seriously. Even here it takes Reggie to ask the question. Hopefully that changes starting today," they added in the thread. 

"Obama just announced UFOs... Crazy time to be alive," reacted a Twitter user, while another said, "Why is this not a bigger news story?"
