Days ago, late night host Jimmy Kimmel tweeted a video of Mike Pence talking about carrying empty boxes into a nursing home during a publicity stunt. After Kimmel learned that a much longer version of the video revealed that Pence was merely joking, he deleted his tweet and apologized for the honest error.
You’d think that would be the end of it. But Mike Pence’s office apparently wrote to Jimmy Kimmel and demanded that he apologize on air. So Kimmel did a segment where he took full responsibility for his honest error, while absolutely shredding Trump, Pence, and the idiotic MAGA crowd (if the video below doesn’t load for you, click here instead):

Mike Pence just made it so much worse for himself by demanding that Jimmy Kimmel do an on-air apology. Kimmel was surely ready to move on from the incident, but thanks to Pence’s demands, Kimmel ended up absolutely eviscerating him for it.
