Shirley MacLaine: “Terrific” That Kucinich Admits Seeing UFO

SshirleyufolargeOn “Today” this morning, Shirley MacLaine told Matt Lauer that she thinks it is “terrific” that Dennis Kucinich admitted at the last Democratic debate that he believes UFOs exist.

“I think that is terrific that a presidential candidate admitted it,” she said. “If they asked Gov. Bill Richardson, he would say it too, because he’s the governor of UFOs. New Mexico.”

At the debate, Kucinich confirmed what MacLaine wrote in her new book, “Sage-ing while Age-ing,” that he saw a UFO on a visit to her home. The entire exchange has led to a sidelight in the presidential race, pitting UFO believers against UFO deniers.

MacLaine said that she became fascinated with UFOs when she was 18 and spotted the onjects above the White House and the Capitol.

“It had a tremendous effect on me,” she said.

“I have talked to a lot of astronauts and a lot of presidents, and these people are saying they are real.”
