Hillary Clinton has a message for America: We are not alone — or maybe weare.
Meeting with the editorial board ofThe Conway Daily Sun in New Hampshire, Clinton affirmed her belief that "we may have been [visited already]. We don't know for sure." Clinton was there in preparation for the upcoming New Hampshire primary on Feb. 9.
"Clinton also said she would like to look into Area 51," reported Daymond Steer, "a secret military base in Nevada that has long been rumored to contain aliens. At first, she called it Area 54 and then corrected herself."

Now, Clinton didn't randomlysolicit her view of extraterrestrials. It happened during a playful exchange between her and the editorial board of that newspaper.
The Daily Beast added that "the reporter said he spoke to Clinton about aliens in 2007, when Clinton reportedly told him the top-open records request her husband received at his library involved UFOs."
Politics publicationThe Hill provided further context, explaining Clinton's comments "came after being asked about her husband Bill Clinton's comments during an appearance on the late-night show 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' in 2014, when he suggested that extraterrestrial life could exist."
