7 US Presidents And Their Experiences With The Paranormal

It's no surprise that US presidents have to contend with civil unrest, international tensions, and plummeting approval ratings, but the US leaders on this list also dealt with much stranger issues. Past presidents have searched for Bigfoot, gone head-to-head with ghosts, and come back from the grave to bemoan their own assassinations. From the early days of our country to presidents still alive today, leaders have had experiences with aliens, psychics, and cryptids. And of course, there are dozens of White House ghost stories

From mysterious flashing lights in the sky to ghostly portents of death, you won't find these paranormal experiences reported by US presidents in your average history textbook.
