Kimmel Claims The Video Is Meant To Clear Up "The New American Way"
Schoolhouse Rock, ABC's animated musical education program, produced many memorable episodes. One of the most recognizable was "I'm Just a Bill," the famous song used to teach children about how laws are made in Washington.
Jimmy Kimmel, however, thinks it's not enough in today's political climate.
The talk show host kicked off the night by saying we "live in a world of alternative facts" and the President "makes up statements every day which aren't necessarily based in truth."
"We're raised to believe that the President tells the truth..."
Kimmel goes on to say that to bring children up to speed, they took a cue from Schoolhouse Rock and developed their own song to explain the President's actions and the "new American way."
"I wonder who that sad looking fellow over there is?"
Doing their best to mimic the original's style, Kimmel's "I'm Just a Lie" displays a similar tune and upbeat message. The Lie, sitting on Capitol Hill, explains to the young boy that some day he's going to be a Fact.
"I just popped out the President's brain, and the very idea of me's completely insane."
