Jimmy Kimmel Informs Pedestrians FDR Just Passed Away

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 4, 2014

Last month Jimmy Kimmel had an interviewer inform people on the street that Pres. Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) just passed away and asked for their comments.  The fact that FDR passed away in 1945 seemed unknown to them and did not stop respondents from making various interesting responses.

While the Kimmel interviews were humorous, they were at the same time quite distressing.  What a sad commentary on the knowledge of some of the electorate.  What a sad commentary concerning the state of the American education system.
