According to 44, the sightings are real while he dismissed rumors that the United States government has alien specimens in its possession.
“When it comes to aliens, there are some things I just can’t tell you on air,” said Obama. “Look, the truth is that when I came into office, […] I was like, ‘All right, is there the lab somewhere where we’re keeping the alien specimens and spaceships?’
“They did a little bit of research …. and the answer was ‘No.’”
“But what is true — and I’m actually being serious here — is that there’s footage and records of objects in the skies that we don’t know exactly what they are,” Obama said. “We can’t explain how they moved, their trajectory … they did not have an easily explainable pattern,” adding, “So 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.”
