July Fourth Jimmy Kimmel Video: Watch Independence Day “Lie Witness News”
There’s little Jimmy Kimmel loves more than proving the stupidity of everyday people. And with Independence Day this Saturday, Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” debuted a new holiday edition of “Lie Witness News.” Check out the video below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, the classic segment features a Kimmel staffer going on to the streets of Hollywood to ask random bystanders about a timely topic. But the twist is that the questions posed aren’t accurate, and the strangers, proving dumbness knows no bounds, fall for it. In this case, the subject matter was the Fourth of July.
Kimmel explained that “another part of being American is not knowing anything,” and he proved it by having his crew ask people if they heard the governor of California wanted to “reschedule” the holiday, and move it to February. Other questions included, “What was your reaction when you learned Katy Perry had trademarked the word ‘fireworks’ and now people have to refer to them specifically as ‘sky sparkles?” and “Will you be watching President Obama’s planned Fourth of July Confederate flag burning with the last surviving Tuskegee airman and the Wu-Tang Clan in the Rose Garden?”
Another query had some believing James Van Der Beek, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Nathan Fillion were Founding Fathers, and of course there was a play on Donald Trump’s controversial comments about Mexican immigrants. The responses, of course, were priceless. Watch below!
