A new original satire video from Jest’s comedy website proves that “people will believe anything about politics if you look like a news man and are holding a microphone.”
The fake news caster runs around New York City proving typical idiocy by saying things that simply aren’t true — like that President Barack Obama dumped Joe Biden over his looks after Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan as his veep.
“It seems like a very unprofessional thing to do, but I guess it’s strategic,” a woman holding a to-go coffee cup postulated as she shook the hair out of her eyes.
The anchor tells another woman President Obama won the state of Ohio and asks her what she thinks this means for Romney’s chances in the election.
“I’m sure it’ll definitely affect it. I don’t really know like what states Romney has won and what the ratio is,” she responded, apparently unaware that Election Day isn’t until November.
People even seemed to buy that Romney would rather live on a yacht on the Potomac River than in the White House and that “the cost of free speech is rising.”
The only thing people wouldn’t buy? “Clint Eastwood gave a speech to an empty chair representing an invisible Barack Obama.”
Watch the video, uploaded on Jest on Sept. 7.
‘Do a lot of stupid sh*t as quickly as possible’: Ambassador Power breaks down ’The Trump Doctrine’
The former ambassador to the United Nations explained "The Trump Doctrine" during a Friday evening interview with comedian Bill Maher on HBO's "Real Time."

"Obama's foreign policy doctrine was famously summarized as 'don't do stupid sh*t," Maher noted. "Trump's, of course, is 'Do stupid sh*t.'"
"Do stupid sh*t as quickly as possible," Power clarified.
‘Brett Kavanaugh’s penis is back in the news’: Bill Maher breaks down the latest Supreme Court scandal
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher broke down the latest scandal facing the United States Supreme Court.
"Brett Kavanaugh's penis is back in the news," Maher said. "The New York Times kind of tripped over his dick on this one."
Maher suggested the report reflects poorly on Kavanaugh's manhood.
"The problem is the woman, the victim, has no recollection of it happening -- which isn't really a ringing endorsement of his penis," Maher said.
CNN analyst has a question for Dems: ‘How low will Trump have to go for you to impeach him?’
Following a day of bombshell reports on the rapidly-growing scandal involving President Donald Trump and Ukraine, a CNN analyst wondered what it will take for House Democrats to impeach the commander-in-chief.
Earlier on Friday, in an interview with NPR, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she was still not in favor of impeaching Trump.
CNN analyst and New York Times contributing op-ed writer Wajahat Ali wondered what -- if anything -- could result in Speaker Pelosi backing impeachment.
