“We are now living in a world of alternative facts,” Jimmy Kimmel explained to his audience.
“We are raised to believe that the president tells the truth, but that isn’t necessarily the case anymore,” Kimmel said.
In the video, a boy visiting Washington, D.C. approaches what looks to be a bill from the old “Schoolhouse Rock” episodes. But it’s actually a lie.
“I’m a lie,” the lie said. “Let me try to explain.”
“I’m just a lie. Yes, I’m only a lie. I’m so untrue I just want to cry,” the lie then starts singing. “Well, I just popped out of the president’s brain and the very idea of it is completely insane but someday I am going to be a fact. Oh, yes, I will try and will try but today I am still just a lie.”
The boy asks the lie why he is so determined to become a fact if it is untruthful.
“You see kid, I make the president feel good about himself. And sometimes I can even help him sell his policies to voters.”
