Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience recently. The wildly popular podcast is known for letting guests discuss out side the box topics.
The two spent an hour talking about the usual subjects of a Presidential candidate - universal health care, student loan forgiveness, taking on the billionaire class, etc. and as expected the topic of UFO's came up.
Rogan is a UFO enthusiast, so we knew he would ask what the Senators position on the subject of UFO's is, but he waited to near the end of the podcast to ask about it. When the question was finally asked, Sanders announced that if elected - he will disclose anything he finds out about UFO's and Aliens to the public on Rogan's podcast.
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?”
Bernie had not announced any position on the subject before, so it's no suprise that he told the audience what they wanted to hear. Another candidate, Andrew Yang, already announced his intentions to declassify Area 51 so Sanders needed to pander to the audience as well.
We hope he keeps his word if elected, but no other President has released anything substantial on the subject.
