Many of us have long suspected this.

A whole lot of people, on both the left and the right, were hoping that Donald Trump's campaign for president would turn out to be a big joke. Comedian Jimmy Kimmel took that wish a step further Thursday, airing a parody April Fools' Day announcement from the Republican front-runner on ABC's late-night "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

Kimmel told the audience he had a "bombshell revelation" to share that would shake up the current election cycle. The mock video, a cleverly edited parody PSA made to look like it was from Trump himself, claims that the businessman's campaign has been a lark the whole time.

Can you help us out?
