“Do you believe in aliens?” was asked on the show, with Barkley providing the first response. He said:

No. Cause I haven’t seen one.

Disagreeing with the NBA veteran and sports commentator, Tyson asserted that not witnessing something shouldn’t hinder belief. On the contrary, Barkley’s co-host sided with Tyson, while Barkley insisted on requiring concrete evidence before embracing belief.

If we had a person coming in here who met an alien, we wouldn't have you on the show.

Charles had this to regarding Donald J. Trump:

He’s trying to make people fearful of immigrants, black people, Hispanics [and] Muslims. Obviously, we got a lot of anti-semitic stuff going on. It’s a travesty and a disgrace that he’s able to do that...For a man who’s running for the most powerful position in the world to use pseudo-racist rhetoric, that’s one of the reasons I can’t vote for that guy. Because man, he just rubs me the wrong way. And people can vote for whoever they want to. But I just do not like it at all.
