Jimmy Kimmel Catches People Lying about Watching First Lady Debate

Comedian Jimmy Kimmel sent a team out Wednesday night to ask people on the street who they thought won, “last night’s First Lady debate.”

Embarrassingly enough, everyone had an answer.

“I’d have to say Michelle Obama,” said one participant. “Her speech was, you know, more finely well cut, I think she has a lot of experience as the President’s wife.”

Other people admitted that they only saw portions of the debate because they were flipping between that and another show.

“I just saw a little of it to tell you honestly,” said another participant. “But I saw the personality came out and the connection came out she [Michelle Obama] seemed more to the ground than Ann.”

All of these participants clearly had already established their ideas about both of the potential First Ladies and no need to have watched a debate in order to decide who won.

“Definitely Ann Romney,” said a third participant. “I think she’s very classy and a wonderful lady.”

Kimmel’s “First Lady” sketch came directly after his show on Tuesday night where he asked participants, before Tuesday’s Presidential debate, to say who they thought won, “last night’s debate.”

“I’m gonna go with Obama,” said one participant. “I would say he was stronger this time around in his choice of answering questions and everything.”

Another participant said there were so many highlights that he couldn’t even begin to describe them all.

While Kimmel’s sketches are all in good fun, they point out a serious problem with the national electorate in their level of ignorance about this Presidential election.

It makes you wonder, just how many people are going to head into that voting booth in November without having watched a single Presidential debate, read any election articles or informed themselves about any of the issues at stake?

    Gee, I saw that debate on OTBS* and it was clear to me and all other viewers of that program that Ann Romney has mopped the floor with Michele; indeed, many have wondered aloud “How could it happen?” but alert constant observers have each said “It’s simply a matter of posture. Michele postures and Ann presents.” What channels are you guys watchin’?

    *Over the Top BS

    Yes, especially someone who looked at the video and drew that conclusion.

    1. You have no idea whether those people in the video were going along on the joke
    2. You have no idea whether those people in the video were actors
    3. You have no idea how many Jimmy Kimmel interviewed to get that sample
    4. Given that the video is taken in one part of the country it is silly to draw that conclusion about the national electorate

    Seriously, please do not embarrass yourself and ruin your chances of having your work linked at WE CNN, WaPo, and FOX “News” with this silly nonsense

    Maybe not at WE or FOX “News”, they’ll give you a show
