Outspoken Fox News host Tucker Carlson has sensationally claimed the US government is hiding evidence of UFO wreckage from the public.
The Conservative political commentator appeared on the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens on November 22 and was asked what he knew about extraterrestrial life.
Speaking to journalist Nick Pope, he said: “I’ve heard this from someone who I think is knowledgable in the subject.
“There is physical evidence that the US government is holding which would tell us a lot more about what these objects are.
“The person who told me is someone who worked on this within the government for some years and who would know.
“I asked point-blank: ‘Is there physical evidence of these objects, these aircrafts?’
“And he said: ‘Yes there is’.”
More than 200,000 people have seen the footage since it was shared to Twitter.
“Okay, this is epic,” one wrote.
Another added: “This can no longer be a secret.”
But others were less convinced, adding: “The Government was testing out weather balloons. End of Story.”
Carlson has sparked waves of controversies over the years on his show Tucker Carlson Tonight.
In August, three days after a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, where the shooter wrote a manifesto about a “Hispanic invasion of Texas,” he said that white supremacy was “not a real problem”.
And in December 2018, when speaking about immigrants, he said: “We have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor, they tell us, even if it makes our country poorer and dirtier and more divided.”
