Jimmy Kimmel Convinces Pedestrians That President Franklin D. Roosevelt Just Died

In another of Jimmy Kimmel’s always terrific “Lie Witness News” segments — in which he asks the opinion of pedestrians on fictional bands and/or other things that did not happen — he broke the news to saddened pedestrians that former President Franklin D. Roosevelt had just passed away. FDR, by the way, would be 132.

He really was terrific in Pearl Harbor, and I’m sad that his Twitter account will be abandoned. Maybe Eisenhower can fill the void with a parody FDR account.

It’s the confidence they exude that really baffles me.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    … and it's not like they're asking about Millard Fillmore! FDR was a biggie! I even have his action figure!

  • TacoBellRey

    I really want them to walk up to someone and ask them these and then be floored with how smart they are to show that we aren't surrounded by idiots.

  • Uriah_Creep

    I'm sure that happens fairly often, but the show's producers would not use those segments.

  • Bedewcrock

    Do they tell them how horribly, horribly wrong they are? I kind of need to see that. Why don't they show us that?!

  • huh.

    They did ask the one woman where she was when she wasn't learning anything about American history. Just once though I would like to see one of these segments end when the person getting whacked on the nose with a rolled up newspaper.
    I will never forget catching an episode of "The Man Show" where Jimmy and Adam Carolla went on a campaign to end women's suffrage. The number of people who responded floored me. I was about 17 and it was the first time I realized humanity was doomed.

  • Oh god, the Twitter girl. How does that even happen? Do people not realize it's okay to just say "I don't know?"

  • becks2point0

    Seriously. That didn't seem like a little fib, she was committed. I can't decide if she's a pathological liar or if she was "trolling" as the children are wont to do these days.

  • cruzzercruz

    Oh, she just wanted to seem like she knew. She wasn't able to come up with any fake tweets off the top, but the gusto she showed when agreeing really sold it.
