Twitter Does Not Label “Manipulated Media”
However, Even WashPo Calls It A “False Claim”
Jimmy Kimmel showed footage of VP Mike Pence carrying PPE into a Virginia nursing home and clearly insinuates that it was “staged” and says listen in as VP is caught joking with his crew. After loading several boxes and carrying them to facility and returning back to the van, VP Pence starts to load additional boxes when he is told “those are empty.” VP Pence jokes, well, can I carry the empty ones for the camera…”
Unfortunately, while Kimmel eventually tweeted that “it would appear that @vp was joking about carrying empty boxes” it was after his video went viral.
