Former Republican Vice President Mike Pence spoke with Fox Business host Larry Kudlow on Monday.
Kudlow made some dubious comments about Democratic President Joe Biden then asked Pence if he’d ever seen a President who “commits so many falsehoods.”
You can see the excerpt here:
\u201cLarry Kudlow asks Mike Pence if he's ever seen a president say as many falsehoods as Biden. Pence says "never in my lifetime." Not a single shred of self-awareness between these two guys.\u201d— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar) 1655756380
Kudlow who served as former Republican President Donald Trump's Director of the National Economic Council said:
"Have you ever seen a President who refuses to accept blame, and I want to add to that, commits so many falsehoods?"
"I’m being very polite here, calling it falsehoods—falsehoods, you know, on any given day."
"He’s out there saying stuff that just ain’t true. Have you ever seen anything like that?"
Pence who has indicated he has his eyes on the Oval Office in 2024 but still publicly supports Trump, responded:
"Never in my lifetime."
"I said today that there has never been a time in my life where a President was more disconnected from the American people than we see today."
People were left wondering where Pence and Kudlow were from January 20, 2017 - January 20, 2021—Trump's tenure as President.

\u201c@drlfarrell That's fair. I think "shameless" is a better word.\u201d— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar) 1655756380
\u201c@thesecondrider @Squirrelgirl510 Well, he has to know he's not on the ticket for 2024, but he's trying to get back on, I guess.\u201d— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar) 1655756380
\u201c@SwingStatement @westernsea16 @atrupar Today I didn't run through the stop sign at the end of my block. Came to a full stop for 2 seconds and looked both ways before proceeding. No one has called yet to ask me to be on their cable news program. WTF do I have to do?\u201d— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar) 1655756380
\u201c@bmckenz44559503 @atrupar Great meme. Hope you don\u2019t mind if I save this. \ud83d\ude0c\ud83d\ude4f\u201d— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar) 1655756380

\u201c@KeithOlbermann @atrupar It's hard to find a day when that is not the case.\u201d— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar) 1655756380
\u201c@maudi63 @atrupar I remember when he removed his water bottle from the table just because he saw Trump remove his water bottle. But when he went to the football game just so he could turn and immediately leave when the players took a knee, I was finished.\u201d— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar) 1655756380
\u201c@73SNAngel @atrupar @Mike_Pence @LarryKudlowShow Do these guys just go in the back room after this is over and just laugh and laugh at the rubes that want to believe this stuff?\u201d— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar) 1655756380
Presidential candidate Trump lied so often during his campaign that major news organizations in the United States and internationally set up fact checking and lie tracking apparatus to handle the volume.
Scales were created to express the size or scale of the Trump lies—from slight spin to complete falsehoods withno basis in reality.
The Washington Post—which put Trump's total lie count as he left office at over 30,573—developed the Pinocchio scale and eventually went with bottomless Pinocchios for the complete falsehoods Trump repeated over 20 times.
Apparently Kudlow and Pence missed them all.
