In the name of transparency, supporters and opponents alike want Donald Trump to release his personal tax returns before November. However, when Jimmy Kimmel sent his “Lie Witness News” reporters to the streets of Hollywood, he inadvertently discovered that the general public doesn’t really care what Trump spends his money on:
“Donald Trump says people don’t care about his tax returns, I disagree, I care about his taxes. I think a lot of people care,” Kimmel said in the clip introduction.
Kimmel made up a bunch of absurd claims about Trump’s tax returns, including a fictional donation to the dentist who killed Cecil the Lion and a legal defense fund for former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle.
Kimmel “reporters” asked random people on the street what they thought about Trump’s fictional net worth of $42,000, instead of the $10 billion the Republican nominee insists he is worth.
“Everyone fibs a little bit,” one interviewee responded.
“Well, that settles it, he can get away with anything,” Kimmel concluded.
Perhaps the real lesson to be learned here is: everyone hates the IRS.
