"Happy lie 2K everybody," ABC late-night host jokes.
Jimmy Kimmel took a moment Wednesday night to recognize Donald Trump's "unprecedented achievement" of telling 2,000 lies during his first year as president and even made a documentary to commemorate the historical moment.
"Yesterday, Trump told his 2,000th lie since taking office, so happy lie 2K everybody," Kimmel joked in his monologue before playing a montage of the president saying one of his favorite phrases, "Believe me."
"Do you think Abe Lincoln ever said, 'Believe me,' Kimmel asked. "Believe me, he did not."
"The volume of fiction that comes out of his orange is staggering. it's so brazen, I almost can't help but admire it. 2,000 lies is an unprecedented achievement, so tonight we're doing to look back at his many prevarications with a new mini documentary that shows us how we got to this remarkable moment in misrepresentation."
The stunning number of lies coming out of Trump's mouth was counted by The Washington Post, which fact checked the president to discover he told an average of 5.6 false claims a day.
"Which is impressive considering the fact he's only working 2.6 hours per day," Kimmel joked before introducing "Pants on Fire: The Road to 2000 Lies."
The mockumentary covers notable lies including his denunciation of a non-existent Swedish terrorist attack, his claim that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower, his claim he signed more bills into law than any president before him, and most recently, that his proposed wall stretching across the entire US.-Mexico border could be completed in a year.
