READ: White House Official Transcript Claims ‘(Applause)’ Where There Was None During Mike Pence’s Munich Speech

The White House wants you to believe that Vice President Mike Pence received applause when he mentioned President Donald Trump at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday, but video of the event shows something entirely different.

“I bring greetings from the 45th President of the United States of America, President Donald Trump,” Pence said in the televised speech.

The White House, however, embellished the vice president’s words in its official transcript.

It reads:

“To them and to all of you, it’s my great honor to speak to you today, on behalf of a champion of freedom and a champion of a strong national defense, the 45th President of the United States of America, President Donald Trump,” the transcript reads.

Then they add for good measure:

“(Applause)”

As you can see from the video below, however, no one clapped.

At all:

Remember when Trump said at a rally in July: “what you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening?” Looks like the White House is running with it.

But the American people are smarter than that.

Note how Pence’s expression shows that he was not expecting such a cold reception in response to greetings from Trump.

This was Pence’s “please clap” moment… just a little over three years to the day.

And it was the second time a European audience snubbed Pence during his trip.
