Trump Presidential Campaign 'Outed' as April Fool's Joke in Kimmel Video

Well America, it looks like you just got punk’d!

Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday aired an “exclusive” announcement from Donald Trump revealing that his campaign for president has all been one nightmarish elaborate April Fool’s Day joke. Impressive, right?

In actuality, the former Apprentice host would like you to go out and vote for his friend, Hillary Clinton. (Obviously, this announcement is 100 percent real and has not been doctored at all.)

Watch ‘Trump’ reveal his elaborate ruse above, then sound off in the comments.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    If only……

    Oh how I wish this were true….

    We could only pray but he is right about one thing he is a joke. Unfortunately we have many uneducated redneck angry people who would support a candidate like him, because they don’t have a clue.

    • Frank says:

      People like you are the reason Trump has so much support, because people like you call anyone who doesn’t fall into lock-step with your opinion “uneducated redneck angry people” or worse, and try to demonize them.

      Many people, who do NOT fit stereotype, are tired of that crap. Which is why Trump support has less to do with him, and more to do with average, decent folks who are tired of being villainized and demonized deciding they finally found a guy so non-pc that he can essentially act as a middle finger to ignorant people like you.

      • Walkie says:

        Well that makes no sense whatsoever. You only reinforce the stereotype. You are choosing to throw your support behind Trump because he’s not PC? But what about his views? Do those matter?

        • DL says:

          According to a fair amount of polling, no, actually. Trump’s constituents are largely neither “uneducated rednecks” nor people who want to “reinforce stereotypes.” They’re people who have concerns about economic growth and trade policy, and many of them admittedly choose to overlook his radical social views.
          .
          I am absolutely not a Trump supporter. Nor do I think Frank’s intention of “giving the middle finger” is a reason to vote for someone for one of the most important posts in the world. But one thing Frank is right about is that the demonizing absolutely has to stop. We’re all Americans, and hurling insults at each other, regardless of who you’re voting for, is still just playing into all the angry rhetoric that Trump has inspired. Our discourse needs to be civil and constructive, no matter what we think of any group of citizens living in any part of this great nation. Period.

      • Mary says:

        It has nothing to do with being Politically Correct. It has everything to do Human Decency. Like it or not, A PRESIDENT, does need to show diplomacy. Your last statement has proved my point.

      • David4 says:

        People like you are the reason why America is no longer great.

    • lariet50 says:

      I have to call you out on your use of “redneck” here. If you’re referring to Southerners, we aren’t all uneducated, we aren’t all “rednecks,” and we don’t all support Trump. Plus, everyone is entitled to an opinion. Just because it differs from yours, you denigrate them. This is probably the biggest problem facing our society today – no one respects anyone else’s freedom to have their own beliefs. This coming from a college grad who was raised in the South and can correctly use words like “denigrate.”

      • Mary says:

        Wow where in my statement did I refer to Southerns, must hit close to home if you got that out of what I said. This is America and people can vote for whom they want, and they can also believe what they wish. However; they don’t have the right to infringe their beliefs on others who don’t feel the same. I think you know what I am talking about without getting into specifics. I still say anyone who would consider voting for a man who presents himself as an know it all, uncompromising human being, degrades certain groups of people, throws tantrums when one questions him as uneducated.

        • lariet50 says:

          I find it sad that there are so many people like you out there who are completely unwilling to admit they’re wrong, or respect the opinions of others. You’re entitled to your beliefs, but think twice before you start slinging hate from now on. This world is rough enough without people like you making it worse.

        • Mike M says:

          I find it sad also that there are so many people like you. Mary, you used the word redneck. Are you so stupid you use it with no idea what it means or where it comes from? Or are you even more stupid you are unable to check a words meaning before you use it? Or are you so utterly crazy that you STILL can not even understand you need to look at what you first wrote and check what might be meant before you respond to a reply and completely ignore the clear meaning of what the person is saying? And that’s before we even start on the fact that all you even had to say in the first place was that 1) You don’t like Trump (no reasons, no substance nor any actual logic why), and 2) Everyone that does like him is an uneducated redneck. In the end the most tragic part of all of this is that the only person that looks even remotely uneducated here is you, but that’s OK, half the people in the world have less than average intelligence; the rest of us know you when we see and hear you, we accept that you’re stupid and move on. But when you get seriously waay out of hand like this we will call you on it. Because it’s attitudes like yours that start(ed) civil wars, and are again the thing that’s really damaging America, never mind the politicians.

    Don’t vote Hilary, she is almost as bad as Trump, except she’s got the positive wind of diversity pushing her along. She’s one end of the spectrum, he’s the other end.

    • wrstlgirl says:

      Exactly. No matter what happens if/when Hilary or Trump win this country is doomed for at least the next four years. People think it’s bad now, it will get worse.

      • Mike M says:

        Sigh – as usual I agree with another of your posts. But I really really wish you weren’t so right this time. But ask yourself these questions. 1) Can there possibly be NOBODY better than these two people to run this country out of 325 million candidates? 2) How can 325 million people let it come to this? 3) If it is all due to the “system”, and isn’t actually the fault of the 325 million people, and there was nothing the 325 million people could do to stop it, then just how seriously “lucked” are the 325 million people?

    • Phoenix5634 says:

      And diversity is a good thing, but it’s being overplayed because people are too impatient to let the system( by the system, I mean basically everything ) to catch up, and because of that its almost becoming sexist towards white males. Employers are looking to diversify and to hire more minority and female employees, but that means white males are losing or being passed over for jobs, regardless of their qualifications. And thats happening in post-secondary schools, many other similar institutions. Equality is good. But if we overshoot it and go too far, all we’re doing is reversing the roles of race and gender we had in previous centuries, and that’s not equal.

      • Jess says:

        This argument always frustrates me. As someone in a hiring position for a company focused on hiring diverse, well rounded, forward thinking candidates, I can assure you that no qualified candidate is being passed over for someone less qualified regardless of race and gender. The push to hire diverse candidates means broadening the candidate pool in order to identify talent that you haven’t previously reached, it’s not about sliding white males to the bottom of the pile. When the candidate pool expands there is, naturally, more competition. That’s a good thing. It should be a challenge to the entire work force to step up, work harder, improve their skills, and learn to promote what they bring to the table. If you’re the best person for the job, you’ll get hired.

        • Phoenix5634 says:

          I’d like to point out the recent Supreme Court nomination… Even though it was openly admitted he was more than qualified, if not the most qualified person for the job… But there was outrage over it, why? They made the argument that it should be someone more diverse…even though most state and civil courts have been widely diversified in past years. When white people are being passed over for the sole reason that they arn’t from a minority or a female, how is that any better that… Imagine if that argument was made in reverse… It’s just puts us back from where we came from but in reverse for gender/race. It’s not equal.

          • Amelia says:

            But here’s the thing Phoenix. You’re saying there was an outrage over Garland’s nomination but at the end of the day, he was nominated. He wasn’t passed over for someone more diverse.

            I completely agree with Jess. Qualified people aren’t getting passed over for a less qualified person of color. BUT I would argue that woman and people of color are passed over with higher qualifications but no one is going to come out and say that “Yeah I didn’t hire her because she’s a woman” or “I didn’t hire him because he’s black” but we know it happens.

          • Phoenix5634 says:

            The point is, even though he was the most qualified for the job, people were outraged, and wouldn’t even meet with him for days. He only managed to hold on to the nomination so far because he is actually the most qualified. But what if he was only just equally as qualified as someone from a minority or a female, exactly as qualified…then diversity is a positive for the one, and just being white with diversity, by default gives the other a negative. Maybe 10 years ago it was the way you say, but today it’s starting to become, as you said ” yeah we didn’t hire him cuz he’s white” but your right they can’t say that, so what they actually say is “we’re diversifying”. And its only white males who suffer from this sort of thing, because white females are part of diversifying too. And everyone is quick to basically attack white man in today’s society, if they don’t tip toe around certain issues, they get called racists or sexists.

          • Josh Killen says:

            As a white male what you are saying sounds really white privilege like. As if because you are white and a male you should be first priority that entitlement is absurd, because others are being recognized and given better positions, white men are losing out?. That’s Not true,up until recently and even today people of color who were qualified or over qualified are looked over. And there are times I’m sure white people who were not as qualified are employed. I don’t doubt that some companies do diversify so it doesn’t look bad on their part but the whole woe is me I’m a white man in America.. please stop it. I went to college I have a job I’m doing well for myself because I put in the work just like that black man, woman Asians and Latinos put in the work to get that position. It’s easy to blame the “other” and create this fear that “they” are taking everything away from “us” to create divide. We live in a unjust country it’s always been this way. I just don’t buy the whole qualified white men are becoming worst off because diversity is being forcefully instrumented with unqualified people

          • Phoenix5634 says:

            @ josh.
            Your arrogance, and willingness to overreact so quickly is exactly what is wrong with America today.

            You clearly either barely read, or didn’t understand anything I said above..

          • Mike M says:

            I support and agree with both you and Jess, because neither of you are wrong. You are just both coming at the same issue from different angles. Quick recap 101: America was colonized by peoples from all over the world. It is huge in size compared to many other countries and was largely empty, so it continued to grow and grow, again by migrants from all over the world. People spread north and south and there was room for everyone. Those from highly industrialized countries did best and got wealthy the fastest. Largely those were European countries where people where white. Those with money became powerful and a class system evolved. People without money looked for every way to make money to also be powerful. Vast areas of land were suitable for farming, but required people to farm the land. But there simply were not enough people to do the work required. Someone had the bright idea that you could bring in people to do the work, and better yet not even pay them. Huge numbers of African people are imported. Things roll on. The rich get richer and then the empty land runs out. The rich now have to battle with the rich. Many also do not like the fact so many people are slaves against their will. Civil war, 750,000 dead. Slavery abolished. It’s 1865 and yay, everyone now finally has the right to equal liberty. Fast forward 151 years… it’s 2016. We should all be one big happy people right? Wrong. In terms of time, 151 years isn’t a needle in a haystack, it’s an atom in a haystack. Heck it was only the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that abolished segregation. That took another 99 years. So all the right words have been spoken and all the right laws have been made, but racism and discrimination is still alive and well. It’s not anyone’s “fault”, it is because REAL change takes REAL time. Fundamentally each of us exists as an animal with a desire to preserve our own gene pool, most of our parents partnered with a person of the same color, most of us did, and most of our children will too. Then in life we are naturally drawn to those that are like us. But we also learn to appreciate, like and even love those that are not like us, but that is not instinctive. In 1000 years it will probably be a whole lot different but right now we are actually all to some degree born to be racist and discriminating. And so I can totally agree with Phoenix about diversity being good, and that there is impatience for the system to magically BE there. It won’t just magically BE there, and you can’t make it magically BE there – it takes time. And I also agree with Jess, and what Phoenix says should not frustrate you. You should be looking to always hire the BEST person and I have no doubt in my mind that Phoenix has any argument there either. But no, NOT all employers are now looking at it that way at all. There most certainly are more and more employers (especially large corporates with shareholders) that are being scared into looking at the ethnic and gender diversity ratios of their employee base and giving much higher weighting to candidates purely based on the threatening social stigma of having fingers pointed at them. Trust me that issue is hugely alive and well. Nobody can possibly argue that there are issues, just look at the history above. But the issue that first needs to be addressed is INCLUSION. That is, fostering and growing a pool of talent for any given role or profession that includes all the diverse people that it should, without excluding them. THEN from that pool you hire the BEST person for the job, giving EVERY person the exact same evaluation. It will happen, but it will not happen overnight. Society sees it is wrong, and some companies see the threat and want to treat the symptoms and not the disease by balancing the numbers based on numbers and not based on talent. And yes Phoenix, that is just as bad, if not worse.

    • Walkie says:

      How is she almost as bad as Trump? I don’t get that comparison.

    • David4 says:

      While I agree that both are evil and corrupt at least Clinton isn’t trying to ban American citizens from the country.

  5. Phoenix5634 says:

    Check the Mexican president when asked about Trump, lol…

  6. Sean Milton says:

    ABSOLUTELY the funniest April fools joke ever

  7. Whatevah says:

    I wish..

  8. Phoenix5634 says:

    Check out Hillary freaking out at a question from green peace. Hope she’s not that hot headed if she’s win office, and hope she’s more mindful of the environment…

  9. David4 says:

    Trump supporting Clinton is yet another reason we need Bernie Sanders. ;)

  10. HAP says:

    There may be truth here than meets the eye. I’ve always believed that lifelong Democrat Donald Trump was a Manchurian candidate from the start.
