Pence gets destroyed for trying to clean up Trump’s WikiLeaks lie: ‘Words don’t have meaning in Trumpworld’

Published

on

Vice President Mike Pence on Friday claimed Donald Trump’s 2016 declaration that he “loves WikiLeaks” was not an endorsement of the organization — and earned himself the scorn of Twitter.

After WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Thursday, President Donald Trump claimed he had no knowledge of the leak organization — in spite of him mentioning it over a hundred times on the campaign trail in 2016.

In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, Pence said that although “the president always welcomes information” — a reference to his many laudatory comments about WikiLeaks’ hacked Democratic National Committee documents — Trump’s comments were “in no way an endorsement.”

“Words don’t have meaning in Trumpworld,” Vox’s Aaron Rupar joked.

Another user shared a funny — albeit crass — anecdote.

“As a young man, I once worked cleaning up after livestock,” the user wrote. “I kind of know how the VP feels these days.”

“Does Pence think he gets his dignity and soul back at the end of the term?” another user quipped.
