For the camera.  It's what VPs and potential VPs do, right?

JerseyTim: No, Mike Pence Did Not Deliver Empty Boxes To A Nursing Home For A Publicity Stunt


Mike Pence also did not proposition the driver.

Man, taking a Jimmy Kimmel bit and running it as actual news is definitely on brand for journalism in 2020

Mike Pence.  Telling a joke.

Apparently he was joking and didn't actually carry empty boxes.

Jimmy Kimmel is not helping.  If he really hates Trump and the feeling is mutual, why provide him with fodder for his claims of "fake news?"

Just a moronic thing to do.
 
2020-05-08 2:08:27 PM  
Why are they keeping the empty boxes in the van? Why not leave them at whatever place you're delivering stuff to?

All we have is super honest Mike Pence and Buzzfeed to go on. It's not like Pence isn't made from the same shiat Paul Ryan is.

That's the problem.  1 side has to be absolute perfection while the other side only has to be right once out of 100 times and somehow it's still a tossup as to who will win in November.

Maybe Pompeo can clear it up.
 
2020-05-08 2:20:59 PM  
I know this is all a joke or whatever but it doesn't change the fact that Pence is the Vice President and taxpayer money and resources are wasted for stupid photo-ops like this. He should be in DC pretending to do his job instead of pretending to do a deliveryman's job.

I'm sorry, they accused Hillary Clinton and the podestas of being pedos, so fark their righteous indignation. Who farking cares if it's real or fake. People who hate him will believe it is true, while the covidiots will say it's fake. Doesn't matter any more. Nothing matter any more. Whomever has the stupidest story told about them loses.

This is America now.

Thou shalt not bear false witness. Maybe ask Pence to put his hand on a Bible and ask him to swear what was in the box? (Other than Gwyneth Paltrow's head)

This whole admin is a joke.

A really bad terrible joke with a Clorox punch line

Really good at tastless inappropriate jokes. Why were there empty boxes?

Despite Every thing it was still a staged photo op

The Republicans are gonna cry Fake News regardless. And that's despite the fact that Fox News has been spinning the news since the 90s. I'm not really concerned about the GOP having a fit about Jimmy Kimmel. Every Trump press conference is always filled with falsehoods.  He seems to get by.

Since the USPS is out of money, Pence delivered the boxes via sarcasm.

Meh, with all the free passes they've gotten for their actual fark-ups, I'm OK with them getting zinged once in a while on something flimsy. If they had any sense of humor at all, we'd be laughing WITH them, but since they don't we're relegated to laughing AT them every chance we get.

Being a humorless asshole is a great way to paint a target on your head for actual funny people to shoot at. Trump, Pence, et al qualify as humorless assholes and deserve whatever misfortune comes their way, earned or not.

Not at all what was being said...Just enjoying the fake outrage being posed by one of the hardest leaning GOP sites out there. ClownHall is upset because Kimmel made it look like Pence was going to photo op even with an empty box. Stupid on Kimmels part to edit that way, yeah.

Now, care to help me with a few of the classics? What about Hillary's "seizures" before the elections, or her coughing? What about Obama's "you didn't build that"? Or the already edited ads pulled by YouTube and Twitter for Biden being selectively edited? Btw, Kimmel does it for late he tv-he's not claiming to be a news source. Let me know when Julio and ClownHall got outraged about FauxNews carrying water for all three of the above.

"It would appear that @vp was joking about carrying empty boxes for a staged publicity stunt. The full video reveals that he was carrying full boxes for a staged publicity stunt. My apologies. I know how dearly this administration values truth," he wrote.

Nice.

So that negates the fact he wanted to carry empty boxes for the cameras? I don't get it.

He asked it as a very funny joke about empty gestures for political photo ops. It's totally fine for him to joke about that in the middle of a crisis, because he didn't actually carry any empty boxes.
