In the latest installment of “Lie Witness News” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, random people on the street were asked how they felt about Kid Rock winning the special election for Senate (which, for clarity’s sake, he did not), and people’s responses were eye-opening as well as hilarious.
As a publicity stunt last year, Kid Rock announced he was running for Senate, which is what gave Kimmel the idea of pranking unsuspecting passersby by claiming the multi-instrumentalist rocker/rapper/producer won in the midterm elections.
Prepare to laugh and shake your head:
Some commenters—mostly on YouTube—found the clip to be funny:

However, not many Twitter users felt that way:
This is why we pray

This is just sad. Shows how out of touch liberals truly are.

People are so ignorant.

Last week, Kimmel played a similar prank for “Lie Witness News” asking people what it was like to vote that morning … a week before the elections.
Commenters had a similar response:
Every damn time you do an addition of “lie witness news“ I cannot believe how stupid people are, God help us.

Now, people are clamoring for Kid Rock to be president:
