Jimmy Kimmel introduces his "Lie Witness News" segment on Wednesday's show.

"I think it's the biggest joke that ever happened in the entire country, in history," one man says of a fake Gary Busey pick.

People on Hollywood Boulevard had a lot to say when asked about Donald Trump's vp picks in a segment that aired on Wednesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The passersby didn't know that the picks were fake. 

In the latest edition of Kimmel's "Lie Witness News," people were asked about Gary Busey, a former castmember of Celebrity Apprentice, being picked by Trump to be his vice president.

One man thought the announcement was nuts but claimed he was aware of the news. 

"I think it's the biggest joke that ever happened in the entire country, in history," the man said. "I think they both reach the same level of insanity, and they both probably communicate very well." 

Another man was asked about a different vp pick: Dennis Rodman, another Celebrity Apprentice alum. 

"Not many people have gone to North Korea and improved U.S. relations over there in a good amount of time," the man said. "Now that Rodman's involved, just specifically, with North Korea — it's definitely a game changer." 

A woman was asked if she was impressed when, after he was named Trump's vp, former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger bench-pressed a cinder block that would be used for Trump's Mexico border wall. 

"It's a little publicity thing, but it gets people watching TV," she said. "It's impressive." 

In reality, Trump has said he will not name a running mate until the Republican National Convention in July.
