Jimmy Kimmel's latest edition of Lie Witness News tested whether or not people believed that Trump had nominated Rob Kardashian to the Supreme Court
Rob Kardashian sure has a lot on his plate: He’s a new father to baby Dream, a reality star, and he’s secured Donald Trump’s Supreme Court Justice nomination. Or, at least, that’s what Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s latest round of Lie Witness News had people on the streets of Los Angeles believing.
In reality, Donald Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to the position on Tuesday, but that didn’t stop people from believing Kimmel’s crew when they were told Kardashian had been nominated, as they similarly did last month when being quizzed on the differences between the Affordable Care Act and Obamacare.
“Honestly, that was the first wrong move I’ve ever heard him actually make since he’s been president… If he’s really going to do this, he shouldn’t bring somebody that is that famous into this,” said one woman who proudly declared herself a Trump supporter after agreeing that she thought reality TV personalities should stay out of politics.

Another man was certain that Rob’s relationship with Blac Chyna could help U.S. relations with the country of China for the crystal clear reason of “communication,” while yet another insisted that of all the Kardashians to serve on the Supreme Court. It should be Kourtney because she has “the best grip on life, on reality,” he claimed.
