What You Missed on Late Night: Jimmy Kimmel Believes Donald Trump Would Tell Us If Aliens Made Contact

You may have missed the news, but the aliens are coming. Or perhaps they're already here?

On Monday, the Pentagon released a trio of videos of "unidentified aerial phenomena" (or "UFOs" as Jimmy Kimmel put it), depicting mysterious objects rapidly flying and rotating in the sky. In two of the videos, service members excitedly react to noticing a "whole fleet of them" flying against 120-knot wind speeds.

The questionable sighting raised a lot of eyebrows, including those of our beloved late-night host, who thought now was a rather interesting time for the Pentagon to release official videos of what may actually be alien contact.

"While we may be isolated right now, it would seem that we are not alone. As if we didn't have enough to worry about, right in the middle of this—at the moment we are all totally focused on the virus and quarantine and whether or not we should be mainlining Lysol—the Pentagon releases official video of UFOs," Kimmel said during his quarantine monologue from home on Tuesday.

While he pondered the timing of the UFO footage's release (and the whereabouts of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un), other late-night hosts mulled over other perplexing mysteries, like the identity of the person President Donald Trump is now trying to blame the coronavirus pandemic on.

Check out some of the top moments from last night's late-night below.

With most of the U.S. dealing with coronavirus chaos, Kimmel couldn't help but remark on how now might not be the best time for otherworldly entities to touch down on Earth.

"Perfect, just what we need. Has there ever been a worse time for an alien to say, 'Take me to your leader?' I think I'd just lead them to Morgan Freeman's house or something," Kimmel said.

"It seems suspicious to me that the Pentagon waits until the craziest news week of ever to release it. 'The president is telling people to drink bleach, now is the time,'" he continued. "Although here's the one thing I'd say about Donald Trump: If aliens did make contact, he'd tell us. Not on purpose, of course, he just wouldn't be able to resist. He'd be yelling at some reporter and saying, 'This is why I know about the aliens and you don't!'"

The potential UFO encounter wasn't the only big mystery on Kimmel's mind.

"Where is Kim Jong Un?" he asked. "Kim Jong Un is either very sick, or very dead or perfectly fine."

The North Korean leader hasn't been seen in weeks, and over the weekend the hashtag #KIMJONGUNDEAD went viral online after rumors circulated that he may have died following complications from secret heart surgery. However, authorities in South Korea denied the claims and suggested Kim Jong Un is likely sheltering in place somewhere.

"Another theory is he was drinking from a chocolate river and got stuck in a pipe. He's waiting for the Un-pa Loompas to get him out," Kimmel teased.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Meanwhile, at Colbert's house, the late-night host was boggled by the news that Trump's daily intelligence briefing book cited the virus as a threat as early as January. But at the same time, he didn't find it all that surprising that Trump had ignored the information.

"Well, there's your problem. Those are three of Trump's least favorite words: 'intelligence,' 'briefing' and 'book.' If they really wanted him to pay attention they should have called it his Daily Pornographic Hamburger Fire Truck," Colbert joked.

Colbert was even less surprised that Trump was continuing to place the blame of coronavirus' outbreak in the U.S. on someone else. The host showed a clip of the president at a recent press briefing commenting that someone—who he only referred to as "he"—knew about the virus and was slow to respond.

"Then the president shifted blame to his longtime nemesis, fill-in-the-blank," Colbert said before delivering his best Trump impersonation. "'Yes, someone should have stopped it a long time ago, and I don't want to say where. Let's just say in a galaxy far, far away. That bad guy had a ventilator on his face. He knew something was up.'"

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Over at Fallon's place, he and his wife Nancy Juvonen took a stroll outside while playing another round of "Ask the Fallons." One of the big questions of the day was how the couple knew they were ready to have children, and surprisingly, Juvonen said they were excited to start their family as soon as they tied the knot.

"We were ready when we got married. I got married later in life. And [Jimmy] loves kids, and I love kids," she said. "That was just the plan. It wasn't even a, 'Are you ready?' It was just like, 'Now how are you going to do this?' And that was a whole other question. But we did it."
