Late night host Jimmy Kimmel took to the streets of Los Angeles for a new edition of his “Lie Witness News” Monday, pranking pedestrians by telling them that former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt had just died.
“There are a lot of presidents who we don’t know much about so we sent a camera crew out to Hollywood Boulevard today to tell people that Franklin Delano Roosevelt died,” Kimmel explained.

“Did you follow his account on twitter?” one individual was asked.
“Oh yeah,” the woman affirmed, later adding she thought he was a “funny guy” and enjoyed his “Obama ear jokes.”
One couple was asked, “Did you think it cheapened the Oval Office when he made that brief cameo in the movie ‘Pearl Harbor’?”
“No, it made them put more focus on Washington, D.C.,” the unidentified woman replied.
