Hansen says on his TV show [Fact or Faked] they interview a lot of people to find out if they are telling the truth about their paranormal encounters, and he was getting a lot of questions from fans about Kimmel’s interview with Clinton on UFOs and aliens. He says on Fact or Faked they used a lot of techniques to identify deception, and he decided to look at Clinton’s non-verbal communication during the interview to see what he could find.
Hansen also has a background in law enforcement, although he admits he is not an expert in the field of non-verbal communication. He has degrees in sociology and criminology, and has been involved with state level investigations, primarily child sex crimes and white collar crimes. He has also worked with federal law enforcement. So, while he doesn’t have a degree in non-verbal communication, he does have a lot of experience using it.
Hansen says he saw immediate changes in Clinton’s demeanor when Kimmel began asking questions about UFOs. For most of the interview Clinton had his feet flat and was gesturing with both hands. When the UFO conversation started, Clinton crossed his legs and got a better grip on the arms of the chair. Hansen says folded arms and legs can indicate a defensive stance, close-mindedness, or an attempt to conceal information.
