Hillary Clinton was annoyed when she wasn’t questioned about UFOs on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

Newly leaked emails, hacked from her campaign chairman John Podesta’s Gmail account and published by Wikileaks Thursday, reveal an exchange between him and Kristina Schake where they discuss how Clinton’s appearance went.

“How was Jimmy Kimmel?” Podesta wrote in an email to Schake.

“She was charming, got lots of laughs and worked in a lot of message, including climate change,” Schake said. “He didn’t end up asking her about UFOs! She was very disappointed. She practiced UAPs [Unidentified Aerial Phenomena] for 5 minutes beforehand.” (RELATED: Hillary Clinton’s ‘Tonight Show’ Appearance Gets Higher Ratings Than Donald Trump’s)

“The skit was fine but not a home run,” she continued. “We had lots of issues with the development of it today. Her interview was the best part of the show. She’s getting really good at this format — she’s relaxed, confident, works in message and has fun.”


Clinton has previously said that if she is elected she would open up government files on extraterrestrial beings if there were no threats to security.

“I want to open the files as much as we can,” Clinton once said during an interview with the New York Times.

When asked if she believes in UFOs, Clinton said, “I don’t know.”

“I want to see what the information shows. There’s enough stories out there that I don’t think everybody is just sitting in their kitchen making them up.”
