Mike Pence’s ‘Biggest Lie Of The Debate’ Gets The Treatment On Twitter

Critics scoffed at the vice president's bold claim about Donald Trump and their administration's mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Vice President Mike Pence was ferociously called out on Twitter for what some detractors believed was the biggest lie of Wednesday’s vice presidential debate.

“I think the American people know that this is a president who has put the health of America first,” Pence said as he defended the Trump administration’s catastrophic mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Pence leads the White House coronavirus task force. The public health crisis has so far cost the lives of more than 210,000 people in the U.S.

President Donald Trump contracted the virus last week following months of downplaying its deadly threat, holding packed rallies and mocking people (including Democratic nominee Joe Biden) for wearing face masks.
