With all the fake news drifting around the web these days, people have become quite prone to succumbing to mistruths, as Jimmy Kimmel regularly highlights on his late-night talk program in an ever-funny section “Lie Witness News.” (The Hillary Clinton impeachment edition being an especially winning section.)
In honor of Martin Luther King Day Monday, Kimmel’s roving press reporter struck the streets to quiz individuals about the Twitter fight that appeared between
“Why do not those 2 get along?” asked Kimmel’s fake news press reporter to 2 young women.One, rather diplomatically answered, “Well, it seems Donald Trump isn’t truly into African-Americans, we’ll say.”
Another lady was asked if it “was incorrect for Martin Luther King to call President Trump a ‘fish-eyed fool jive turkey?'” The woman answered: “No, not if it’s real.” Asked what people had been stating about the fake remark, she answered: “That it’s real.” Well, OK.One male was adamant that MLK was when a candidate on Trump’s previous truth show, The Celebrity Apprentice, on which the activist was beaten in a difficulty by rock star Bret Michaels.
“How much of their present fight stems from that?” asked the press reporter. The guy addressed: “There’s most likely a bit … I imply, there’s always a history. I do bear in mind that episode, yeah.”

Yeah, maybe a funeral service. Maybe he simply enjoyed it on TV.” Yeah, quite sure he didn’t.
On MLK Day Monday, Trump was spotted golfing at his Mar-a-Lago resort, which marked a break from tradition as past presidents have actually honored King by performing community service and other civic work.
