Jimmy Kimmel Continues To Confuse The Hell Out Of People About The Government Shutdown

10.04.13 4 years ago 4 Comments

Fresh off a beautifully frustrating segment in which people were asked whether they prefer Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act, Jimmy Kimmel enlisted another correspondent to hit the street armed with a confusing political question.

This one (“Do you think it’s right that President Obama refuses to end the government shutdown until the government shutdown ends?”) is pure wordplay entrapment, preying more on people’s lack of comprehension (and/or willingness to listen to an entire question) than their ignorance. But the result is mostly* the same: as soon as the interviewees hear “Obama” you can see their responses ready to burst out of their mouths, rest of the question be damned.

*Stick around until the end of the video if you want to have a sliver of your faith in humanity restored.
