Jimmy Kimmel is taking it upon himself to explain the Drumpf administration to the kids. 

On Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host introduced an animated video in the style of "Schoolhouse Rock," parodying the famous song, "I'm Just a Bill" in order to explain President Drumpf's rhetoric and what he called "the new American way."

"We are now living in a world of alternative facts. The president makes statements every day that aren't necessarily based in truth, which is frustrating to some people and confusing to others especially young people," explained Kimmel.

So he "took a cue from Schoolhouse Rock" to explain "how it all works."

In the video, an animated boy meets a Lie, sitting on the steps of the White House. Breaking into song, of course, the Lie explains, "I'm just a lie, yes I'm only a lie, I'm so untrue I just want to cry." 

"I just popped out of the president's brain and the very idea of me is completely insane." 

When the boy worries he'll be sick, the Lie winks: "Don't worry, Trumpcare is gonna be great!"
