Bernie Sanders may not be the president you want, but he’s absolutely the president you need. That is, if you’re holding onto hope that one day soon someone will expose all of Area 51’s dirty secrets.
Sanders went on the wildly popular Joe Rogan Experience podcast yesterday to discuss various topics surrounding his presidential campaign.
At the end of the podcast, Rogan finally hit him with the question we’d been waiting for: Would he expose the government’s decades-long alien cover-up?
Sanders confirmed that he would expose Area 51‘s hidden secrets, UFOs and all.
Rogan: “If you got into the office and you found out something about aliens, if you found out something about UFOs, would you let us know?”
Sanders: “Well I tell you, my wife would demand I let you know.”
Rogan: “Is your wife a UFO nut?”
Sanders: “No, she’s not a UFO nut. She goes, Bernie, ‘What is going on do you know? Do you have any access?’”
Rogan: “You don’t have any access? You’ll let us know though?”
Sanders: “Alright, we’ll announce it on the show. How’s that?”
While Bernie has spent far more time talking about the aliens that immigrate to America from other countries, Rogan is a certified space nut. He’s interviewed people like Steven Greer who runs the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence, as well as Bob Lazar, who claims to have seen alien life near Area 51 and other government labs. He’s even had another politician, Congressman Mark Walker, on the podcast to talk UFOs.
The infamous government testing site recently leaped into mainstream consciousness due to the Facebook event “Storm Area 51.”
What started as a joke quickly gathered over 2 million attendees. Network stars Steven Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel mentioned it on their TV shows, and PewDiePie riffed on it during his Meme Review. The U.S. Air Force even cautioned people against joining the raid.
The fun came to a halt when Facebook deleted the event. Mastermind Matt Roberts posted a screenshot of Facebook saying the event “went against community standards.”
Facebook has since restored the event, which is now promoting a festival in nearby town Rachel, NV.
If any presidential candidate would inform the American people of extraterrestrial life, it would likely be Bernie Sanders.
The Vermont Senator is known for his outside-of-the-box thinking and his calls for political revolution. He came out swinging on the Joe Rogan podcast, immediately calling out the presidential debates.
“You shouldn’t even call them a debate. What they are is a reality TV show in which you have to come up with a sound byte. It’s demeaning. It’s demeaning to the candidates and it’s demeaning to the American people.”
Sanders is one of only eight candidates to have currently qualified for the next round of debates in September.
