“When it comes to politics, you don’t want to seem like you’re uninformed, even if you are uninformed,” Jimmy Kimmel told his audience Monday night as the Iowa caucuses were underway. Although a crucial part of the election process, not many citizens really understand the purpose of the caucus, and to prove that theory, Jimmy Kimmel Live deployed its Lie Witness News team.
In the segment, the faux news squad hit Hollywood Boulevard to see how many Los Angeles dwellers would fib about voting in Monday’s caucus, an impossibility considering it was only open to Iowa residents. However, that doesn’t stop at least three L.A. denizens from insisting they just voted in the caucus. The length at which people go to prove they’re politically active – making up polling places, describing the free coffee and donuts the non-existent polling place offered, even how long the imaginary lines to vote were – is astounding.
