Far-left late show host Jimmy Kimmel has come under fire for falsely claiming that Vice President Mike Pence faked his recent effort to help a healthcare facility.
The crying late-night host has been bombarded with social media backlash, journalists at NBC News, and BuzzFeed News called out Jimmy Kimmel for putting out “misleading” and “selective” video, adding that the original C-SPAN footage disproves his claim.
Pence was seen on Thursday delivering boxes of personal protection equipment to a healthcare 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?”
Kimmel then chimed in: “Mike Pence pretending to carry empty boxes of PPE’s into a hospital is the perfect metaphor for who he is and what he’s doing — a big box of nothing delivering another box of nothing.”
But the longer C-SPAN version of the video tells a different story than the one Kimmel was spinning. In the original footage, Pence appears to make his remark as a joke before closing a van door and leaving the empty boxes for someone else to carry.
NBC News investigative reporter Emmanuelle Saliba called out Kimmel: “I went back to the original @cspan footage and sounds like @VP was making a joke about the empty boxes. He doesn’t carry those last boxes. He shuts the van doors and turns to speak CEO of @fedresources.”
BuzzFeed deputy director of breaking news David Mack noted that Jimmy Kimmel’s version of the video omits crucial context.
As usual, the far-left political and Hollywood hacks fell for Jimmy Kimmel’s deception and attacked VP Mike Pence.

Kimmel has yet to respond or apologize for purposely spreading fake news about VP Pence.
