He hasn't looked at any of that. If it doesn't have something to do with him, he's bored by it and doesn't listen.

Space aliens are known to rob Blackjack tables. Trump's casino failed. The report could have everything to do with him.

Social distancing could condition society to be more amenable to space alien integration and lead to fruitful scientific and artistic collaboration.

By all accounts, it's extremely dangerous to touch them. Humans tend to touch and fark everything. Before social distancing I had little hope the world would meet them in my lifetime.

Feeling intense fear is normal when meeting them for the first time, be brave and calm, think kind thoughts.

Well, if you believe FOs are real, I'm sure you have to believe UFOs are real too. I think we've all been on FOs.

If it's flying, and you don't know what it is, it's a UFO. Once you know what it is it's no longer a UFO.

Well, if there are aliens watching us then I'm sure the abrupt alteration in noise, travel,  and pollution levels would look pretty curious.

But it's probably just the dolphins leaving.

Well they are still illegal aliens so he is probably trying to figure out how to build a wall against them.

There are those who believe that life here began out there. Far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans.

And yet the need to create a 'Space Force'.
 
2020-04-30 12:10:15 PM  
They are very literally UFO in the denotative sense, because we don't know what they were.

The problem is that UFO now means "alien flying saucer" in the common parlance. So when the president is saying that he doesn't believe the unidentified arial phenomena are UFOs, he's saying he doesn't believe they're spaceships.

It's a linguistically clumsy Trump musing, but given all of the balls-out crazy we've heard this year it's not particularly remarkable.

(This leaves alone the fact that Trump could have access to non-public information about the video if he wanted, but he sure seems like he's getting the information from TV like everyone else.)

Somebody told me these aliens are doing an investigation on Hunter Biden.  More than the regular anal probing so it's go to be something.  I think he was on the board that designed and built the Death Star even though he has no Death Star building experience.  If so, he is responsible for the destruction of Adderal and his mismanagement further allowed a plucky teen to use the force and drop a bluish thing down a thermal exhaust port.

I know it happened a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away but he should be held accountable.   None of you are above the law.

Considering the DoD's recent release of their UFO footage,
A Former Manager of DOD Aerospace Threat Program's statement ("UFOs are real."),
Numerous eye-witnesses,
Thousands of sightings across the US annually,

It's getting a little silly to not at least acknowledge the possibility of the presence of another species in our airspace.

When considering the "U" in UFO, why is there always such a quick leap to alien life forms?

Unidentified? Absolutely
Aliens? Highly, highly unlikely

The video above is one of the released "ufo videos" turns out it's almost certainly a weather balloon that looked weird through parallax.

If they visited and told us to take them to our leader we'd better hope they meet a German because if they met an American then they'd have to conclude there was no intelligent life on this planet after finding out that Trump is our leader.

Purple_Urkle: Social distancing could condition society to be more amenable to space alien integration and lead to fruitful scientific and artistic collaboration.

By all accounts, it's extremely dangerous to touch them. Humans tend to touch and fark everything. Before social distancing I had little hope the world would meet them in my lifetime.

Feeling intense fear is normal when meeting them for the first time, be brave and calm, think kind thoughts.


The best conspiracy theory that I've come up with in all of this is that coronavirus was an excuse to have everyone stay in their homes and stop farking up the environment long enough so that we could impress visiting alien dignitaries and convince them we're not barbarians.

Kind of like how you send the problem child to bed early before that important dinner with the boss.

UFOs are real in the most literal sense: we all know flying objects exist, and some of them do go unidentified.

I find Trump's saying "no" to the question to be telling. There is zero chance that he could have kept it a secret if they really were alien spacecraft. But even if they turned out not to be, I could see him "sarcastically" claiming they were just to stir up shiat. The fact that he actually said no tells me that the answer is boring, at least in his estimation: not even worth lying about.

So my current guess? Some of them may have turned out to be comets or meteors, which are technically extraterrestrial in origin, but no life-forms or alien spacecraft have been found. There may also have been some space junk, which is by definition artificial, but is terrestrial in origin. This muddies the "reality" question in just enough detail to shut down Trump's brain, while still yielding a tl;dr of "no, we haven't found aliens".

The alien city at Area 51 looks like crop circles. That photo was taken recently and apparently used a legal loophole to sneak through that airspace.

Navy probably already concluded the unidentified objects were uninteresting balloons, aircraft or drones.

Aliens have mind reading technology and if you scream loud enough and long enough with your brain, they'll find you and shut you up.

It's not particularly fun. There's the intense fear I mentioned up thread. Charles Hall reports it too.

If he were hit by a flying dildo without knowing what it was before it hit him, that would be a UFO.
