‘Pretty embarrassing’: Tucker frets that potential alien invaders may demand to be ‘taken to our leader’

The U.S. shot down three high-altitude objects that were detected over Alaska, Canada and Michigan over the weekend, adding to the downing of the Chinese spy balloon off the coast of South Carolina on Feb. 4.

Oddly, the Biden administration is being tightlipped about what the additional three flying objects are, other than to assure folks that they can rule out aliens or extraterrestrials, and  Fox News host Tucker Carlson had a little fun with that on his show Thursday by fretting that IF aliens are responsible they may want to be “taken to our leader” at some point.

“What exactly were all three of these objects?” Carlson asked. “As of yesterday, nobody seemed to know. Listen to the commander of NORAD, Air Force General Glen VanHerck pointedly say that the U.S. government has not ruled out the possibility of extraterrestrials.”

Carlson played a clip of Gen. VanHerck saying he has “not ruled out anything” when asked by the New York Times about aliens or an extraterrestrial presence.

“Could be aliens!” the Fox News host then said. “So, here you have three unknown objects in three days. If these things are extraterrestrial, what we’re seeing is an alien invasion — that means at some point they’re probably going to demand to be taken to our leader, and what are we going to say then? ‘This is Kamala Harris. She once dated Montel Williams, but now she runs our country because her boss is senile.’

“Pretty embarrassing. Thankfully, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen,” Carlson continued. “Privately, the U.S. government does not believe these things came from another planet. Whatever they are, they were floating, carried along by wind currents. That means they’re lighter than air and therefore unable to enter our atmosphere without burning up. They must have come from Earth. In other words, they’re what we earthlings call balloons. Balloons? Heard the word before? What’s weird is that no one in charge is willing to say the B-word out loud.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was quick to dash any concerns that may have been spurred by Gen. VanHerck’s remark at Monday’s press briefing.

“I just want to make sure we address this from the White House. I know there have been questions and concerns about this, but there is no, again, no indication of aliens or extraterrestrial activity with these recent takedowns,” Jean-Pierre said. “Wanted to make sure that the American people knew that, all of you knew that, and it is important for us to say that from here.”

National Security Council spokesman John Kirby also said,  “I don’t think the American people need to worry about aliens with respect to these crafts.”

“Is this normal? Is this the way things are supposed to work? We shot these things down, but we have no idea what they were, we don’t know where they came from or what they were doing here,” Carlson added. “That’s what he’s saying. That’s what they’re all saying. And maybe that’s true.”

“On the other hand, this is the same administration that sabotaged the Nord Stream pipeline, the single biggest act of industrial terrorism in history, and continues to lie about it. So, on the other hand, maybe it’s not true, NORAD says the U.S. has just readjusted its radar filter, so all of a sudden we’re seeing all these objects in the sky we didn’t know were there, flying at altitudes that pose an obvious threat to commercial airliners,” he continued.

“Okay. And you should take that seriously, especially because it’s just been reported — we cannot confirm this, but you’ve got to wonder — that at least one of these objects was a National Weather Service balloon,” Carlson said. “Again, unconfirmed, but if that’s true, it would mean the Biden Administration used fighter jets to shoot down its own balloon and we really are becoming Fetterman nation. Let’s hope that’s not true.”
