In the latest installment of "Lie Witness News" he got people to admit to lie about all the things they were doing when they heard the big story.
It's amazing what people will believe, and it's even more amazing what people will lie about and say they already knew. Jimmy Kimmel puts it to the test regularly with his "Lie Witness News" feature, but his North Korea edition really outdid itself.
The ruse this time was to try and convince the public that President Trump had just signed a landmark agreement to annex North Korea as the 51st state of the union.
And, of course, they were urged to talk about how they felt when they first heard the news so they could all lie and, of course, pretend they already knew that.
This is America in 2019. Everybody already knows everything. And they're not afraid to tell you.
We can only imagine how many people looked at Kimmel's correspondent like she was an idiot when she suggested North Korea was now an American state. Or maybe we should say, we hope that a lot of people looked at her like she's an idiot. No slight on her, but we really want to believe that most people know better.
Luckily for Kimmel, and the viewing public, enough people were hilariously clueless enough to not only buy the story hook line and sinker, but they were totally willing to take the lead on the story and pretend they knew all about it.
One young lady admitted she had some reservations about the deal, which is soundly logical ... until you hear why. "That kind of sounds bad," she said. "It's right next to South Korea and South Korea's not the greatest, so, you know."
Wait, no. We don't know at all. So South Korea is the bad one, now?
Another guy said he was at home watching the big announcement and he couldn't stop laughing when Trump and Kim Jong-un started dancing on the table. "I was like, look at these two old guys dancing," he laughed. "Stop."
Kim Jong-un is 35 years old.
One proud Trump supporter said she was glad to see a president finally willing to work with North Korea. And she was especially proud that he took the time to learn the national anthem in Korean, as she totally saw him sing it that way at the ceremony.
Suddenly we're wondering how many eyewitnesses on the news are totally making their stories up, too. Is everything a lie? What reality is this? How old are we? Will we need a passport to go to North Dakota after Trump traded it away for North Korea? Or will they just move the two "states"?
