Donald Trump Supreme Court Nomination: Jimmy Kimmel “Lie Witness News” Video
Jimmy Kimmel tricked unsuspecting people on Hollywood Boulevard into discussing President Donald Trump’s decision to nominate Rob Kardashian to the Supreme Court in a new edition of “Lie Witness News.” Hilariously, a handful of pedestrians in Los Angeles believed it as they responded to fake questions about Trump’s nomination. Check out the video below!
Kimmel introduced the segment on Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” by discussing Trump’s nomination for the Supreme Court bench. As Gossip Cop reported, Kimmel compared the president’s announcement to an episode of “Celebrity Apprentice,” noting its similarity in style and timing as Trump made his decision on live TV. “All that was missing was Gwen Stefani in a rotating chair,” Kimmel joked. Before the talk show host revealed what he called the “most shocking edition of Lie Witness News yet,” he said, “You would assume that people know about [the nomination], or you at least assume people know something.” “We asked people what they thought about Donald Trump’s decision to nominate Rob Kardashian to the Supreme Court,” Kimmel noted.
The first woman to be fooled by Kimmel’s team into thinking Trump nominated Kardashian to the Supreme Court justice, said, “Honestly, I was a little shocked. A little taken aback. But, I look at it as whatever happens, happens for a reason.” Another woman responded with, “That was the first wrong move I’ve heard him make since he’s been president. If he’s really going to do this, he shouldn’t bring someone who is that famous into this. He doesn’t know anything about politics, he doesn’t know anything about nationalism, he doesn’t know anything about what’s going on.”
When a man was questioned on what qualifies Kardashian to be nominated, he said, “He’s a people person, he’ll keep the people’s interest at heart.” He was also asked if Kardashian’s relationship with Blac Chyna could help improve the United States’ relationship with China. “It can’t hurt. It can help. It’s just an open door for communication, communication is important. Honest communication,” he noted.
Another woman discussed which Kardashian would be “next in line” to serve as Supreme Court justice. “The only one that has half a brain maybe would be Khloe or Kourtney.” A different man responded to a similar question, noting, “Kourtney would have made a great Supreme Court justice. Because I think out of all the Kardashian’s, she seems to have the best grip on life, on reality.” Check out the full video below!
