Late night host Jimmy Kimmel recently mocked Mike Pence, in charge of the President’s Coronavirus Task Force, after the vice president was caught on a hot mic asking if he could carry empty boxes of personal protective equipment (PPE) off a van and into the front door of a nursing home “for the cameras.”

“Here he is, with no mask on, wheeling boxes of PPEs into a health care center, and doing his best to lift them,” Kimmel said, narrating the video. “What a hero.”

“And since it was going so well, and also because he didn’t realize he had a mic on, Magic Mike decided to keep it going.”

Someone tells Pence, “Those are empty sir.”

“Well, can I carry the empty ones, just for the camera?” Pence asks.

Kimmel, however, faced a backlash from critics who accused the comedian of making it appear as if Pence had only delivered empty boxes of protective equipment.

A spokesman for Pence tweeted: “This is absolute garbage spread by @JimmyKimmel. Pence is clearly joking about empty boxes & if Kimmel showed the full clip from CSPAN, not the one he selectively edited, you see and hear it.”

On Monday, The New York Times reported that President Donald Trump privately flew into a rage and threw insults at Democrats as his aides are struggling to negotiate a deal to extend coronavirus stimulus benefits, the unemployment portion of which expired at the end of last week.
