The internet machine is all abuzz today with reactions, comments and lies from politicians about last night’s State of the Union Address, but it’s the Jimmy Kimmel Live segment where pedestrians were asked about their opinion of the SOTU before it actually happened, where the best lies were told by people looking for their own 15 minutes of fame.
Pedestrians were asked about such fake moments from the SOTU as Obama’s non-existent weird tie, to John Boehner falling asleep, to the president faking a heart attack at the end of his speech, and many of the pedestrians willingly and happily lied through their teeth to get on television, clinging to their stories even when they knew the jig was up.
The ongoing segment called “Lie Witness News” has become a comedy staple on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and after watching the video below you’ll understand why they keep bringing this genius segment back.
Credit given where credit is due, there were a few people who admitted at the end that they hadn’t seen the SOTU address, but by then it was entirely too late to take back what they had said.
Watch now as Jimmy Kimmel Live suckers another bunch of people into being complete liars on “Lie Witness News.”
