Schoolhouse Rock for Trump – I’m Just a Lie – Jimmy Kimmel

Schoolhouse Rock for Trump – I’m Just a Lie - Jimmy Kimmel

Donald Trump boasted last week that he created the term “prime the pump.” If Trump was deflated to learn that the term had been around since 1933, it may turn his frown upside down to take credit for the term “alternative facts.” If the Trump administration didn’t invent the term, they – and Kellyanne Conway in particular, certainly put it on the map.

It troubles Jimmy Kimmel that we were raised to believe that the President tells the truth, but we live in a world where that is rarely the case.  Because children may be confused by the ‘new American way,’ Jimmy took  a cue from Schoolhouse Rock to explain exactly how lies and facts work now. Tune in next week boys and girls, when former FBI Director Comey shows us why keeping good notes can be a wonderful  thing!
