CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Tuesday ripped Mike Pence for his tried spin of the U.S. Capitol riot, and mocked the previous vp for the way in which he lies.
Pence on Monday instructed Fox News character Sean Hannity that the media’s continued reporting on the Jan. 6 rebel was supposed to “demean” the supporters of former President Donald Trump and distract consideration from Joe Biden’s presidency.
Cooper charged Pence with “trying to rewrite history and pave his way to his own presidential run” and reminded the previous veep that Trump’s supporters had been truly calling for his demise throughout the mob’s assault on the Capitol.
“He lies in such an earnest way, doesn’t he? Hmm. Steely eyes lies,” cracked Cooper. “Pence’s comments are just the latest in a dangerous whitewashed campaign by Republicans who seem to be moving the party further and further from reality.”
