Jimmy Kimmel Marks the ‘2,000th Lie’ of the Trump Administration

Welcome to Best of Late Night, a rundown that lets you sleep — and lets us get paid to watch comedy. What do you think of it? What else are you interested in? Let us know: thearts@nytimes.com.


If The Washington Post’s lie tracker is to be believed, President Trump recently told the 2,000th untruth of his presidency. Jimmy Kimmel christened the moment “Lie2K,” and he presented a mini-documentary to mark the milestone.

“According to The Washington Post — which has been keeping track, I guess — yesterday Trump told his 2,000th lie since taking office. So happy Lie2K, everybody. Two thousand lies in 11 months. He’s averaging 5.6 false claims a day, which is impressive, considering the fact he’s only working about 2.6 hours a day.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
