  1. The only kinda defense I can think of for them is that there are some people named after MLK, and without the Jr., as the host never put his suffix on his name, it can be a little hard to tell in the moment if they mean THE MLK or another person named after an icon. And at this point, if you hear a Trump story, it's hard to not immediately believe it, since he's such a gross person.

  3. Would you please pepper these Lie Witness News videos with some of the people you don't fool? I'm hoping you have to interview a ton of people to find a few marks for a clip like this. Hoping!

  4. It's too obvious that the Twitter feud isn't real because they forgot to have Trump give MLK a stupid nickname like "Fartin Poo-ther Ding-a-ling" or something like that.

  5. I think the worst part about this is knowing those people signed releases allowing Kimmel's crew to air their ignorance.

  6. Would it surprise anyone, if I would say that the name of MLK's father was MLK, and that his son's name (who's still alive and active) is also MLK? Not to defend anyone here, but

  7. only liberals could be this stupid and yet try to pawn themselves off as intelligent, informed, and superior to everyone else. yet these are the very people who will belittle, berate, and ostracize anyone who doesn't agree with them. these are the so called enlightened ones who have the moral high ground to tell everyone else how to live….yet they are too stupid to realize that MLK has been dead for over 5 decades. yea i'm definitely going to listen to ass clowns like this on other real issues like gun control, global warming, immigration, and oh yea the war on terror, cause after all they soo smart…

  8. I really wish these segments would show the twist being explained to people so you could see their faces when they realize how they are.

  9. I feel people answer different questions, then the funny questions are added later to make the answers funny.

    The interviewer asks any question whose answer is: "I do support it"
    then a question is added: "do you support the "grandmas bikini contest?" -voila! there's your joke.

  10. In case you guys are wondering how these videos are made, a combination of two things is happening. The first is the fact that many people are unable to think when you point the camera at them (especially stupid people). The second is that they start off the interview by misdirecting/lying to them “What did you think when you saw this?” The person cant think clearly under the pressure, and just goes along with the devious interviewer. So “lie witness news” starts off with the interviewer lying to people to mix them up in a street interview.

  11. i dont know what producer or director edited so that the audience's responses would be laughing? this is anything but humorous…?

  12. I'm going to say this is just due to self selection. The type of people who sign these waivers probably aren't the smartest.

  13. Remember these aren't Trump supporters this is California this is what happens when you vote for a liberal

  14. I don’t understand how they don’t say “ mlk? Isn’t he dead?” Like really I’m Hispanic and if they would’ve asked me that question I would’ve been like “that fool is dead” but then again if they pay me for it “oh yeah I think MLK should’ve have ran for president instead of Bernie Sanders”

  15. Please tell me that they were ALL Canadians! On another note, I went to an all white school for two years, and during that time I never once heard of MLK JR Day, never read or heard about any African Americans in history class or their contributions to world history (no mention of inventions, their fights for civil rights, their participation in politics, their contributions to the arts, science, technology, medicine, military—none of it)… I remember just a few pictures Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass in the chapter on the civil war (at least they didn’t fully deny the war was about slavery, although slavery was not a big unit in that chapter).

    I can only imagine how little white Americans know if they attend an all or majority white school from K-Uni. This is why diversity is so important: the fact that you can find even 1 person in North America who doesn’t know who MLK JR is should have us totally rethink our so called education system.

  16. that's sad , i'm from another country and i know who he was… how can these ppl cannot know their own country's history ?? it's crucial .

  17. You can clearly tell these people are confused, realizing somethings not right but I feel like they didn’t want to seem dumb even if that’s what they did do.

  18. Americans seems pretty chill in front of the camera and they play along with anything just for the sake of being on camera. I'm pretty sure most of them know about THAT Martin Luther King but think this is another one or maybe Americans are just that privileged that they don't need to learn stuff to have a good job/ life. Not saying there aren't stupid people in other countries as well, just saying America has more privileges.

  19. Well, Trump is the now President, Martin Luther King jr has passed away for several decades, so there's no complaints or any word between these two

  20. Smh……to every black person watching this……..some ignorance is just not funny. It says a lot about this country!!
