ABC’s Left-wing late-night host Jimmy Kimmel is getting blasted for airing a deceptively edited video implying that Vice President Mike Pence was faking his recent effort to help a health care facility.
In addition to social media backlash, journalists at NBC News and Buzzfeed News called out Kimmel for putting out “misleading” and “selective” video, adding that the original C-SPAN footage disproves his claim.
Vice President Pence was seen on Thursday delivering boxes of personal protection equipment to a health care facility in Alexandria, Virginia.
At the end of the version that aired on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the vice president is heard saying, “Well, can I carry the empty ones? Just for the camera?”
Edit is misleading.
He doesn't carry those last boxes. He shuts the van doors and turns to speak CEO of @fedresources
