In a series of tweets late Friday night, Vice President Mike Pence attacked CNN for their coverage of his photo-op visit with undocumented immigrants being imprisoned in camps near the border, with Pence whining that the network was "dishonest."
According to Pence, "CNN is so dishonest. Today we took reporters to a detention facility on the border for families and children and all told us they were being treated well." he tweeted before adding, "Rather than broadcast the full story, showing the compassionate care the American people are providing to vulnerable families, tonight CNN only played video of men in the temporary facility and didn’t play any footage of the family facility at all."
Twitter users were quick to expose the VP with links to photos from what are being called "concentration camps," while others bluntly called Pence a liar.
