Donald Trump White House Renovations – Watch Jimmy Kimmel “Lie Witness News” Video
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” asked people on the street about supposed renovations Donald Trump wants to make to the White House in a new edition of “Lie Witness News” with a twist at the end. Watch below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, “Lie Witness News” is a recurring segment in which passers-by outside the show’s studio are asked about a made-up piece of information. Inevitably, the people assume the “news” is true, and give hilarious reactions. That was exactly the case here in this new installment focused on Trump and the White House.
In introducing the new bit, Kimmel explained, “The winds of change are blowing in this country, and there is a lot of uncertainty in the air. We have a president who doesn’t seem too keen on living in the White House, and that’s just the start of it. So, this afternoon we went out on the street [and] we asked people to weigh in on some plans Trump has for renovating the White House, which, of course, we made up. These are all fake, but the people on the street went along with them anyway for tonight’s edition of ‘Lie Witness News.'”
The first person stopped on Hollywood Boulevard was asked, “What do you think about [Trump] tearing it down to build a bigger, better White House?” The middle-aged man answered, “I think the country is in need of a change, and I’m open to, you know, any new ideas.” Another man deemed Trump’s alleged desire to have a champagne fountain as “trashy.”
A younger guy said he heard on “Tweeter” about Trump’s “plans to replace the White House with a 50-story penthouse building.” Later, some of the people were asked about the future president wanting a “bigger tree” for Christmas at the residence, and joined in a “bigger tree” chant. We won’t spoil what happened next, but check out the video below.
