According to The Washington Post, President Trump has made 2,000 fake or misleading claims since taking office last January. On Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kimmel celebrated the occasion by making a mockumentary about the feat.
“Trump told his 2,000th lie since taking office. So happy Lie2K everybody!”
Reaching that number in 355 days means Trump is “averaging 5.6 false claims a day — which is impressive considering the fact he’s only working about 2.6 hours a day,” Kimmel joked. “He really packs it in.”
“Two thousand lies is an unprecedented achievement, so tonight we’re going to look back at his many prevarications with a new mini-documentary that shows us how we got to this remarkable moment in misrepresentation.”
