People Pretending They Know Anything About The Pope

On late night talk shows, they love to show just how much people would lie to look good on camera. Jimmy Kimmel’s version of this is called “Lie Witness News”. Since the pope quitting has been big news lately, they went out and asked the ignorant among us questions about the new pope, who doesn’t yet exist because the cardinals still have to choose one.

What’s amazing is the level of detail in some of these lies; while most people are vague and just throw out plausible guesses to questions presented as fact, one woman said the new pope was awkward, another that he was from New York, and a guy said the pope’s ex-wife is hillarious.
