Vice President Mike Pence was caught lying on MSNBC when he repeated the widely debunked claim about 4,000 terrorists trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough skewered Pence for lying:
We now move from suspected terrorists to “special-interest immigrants.” Mike Pence once again floating that number 4,000 around when the overwhelming majority comes in through airports..
This what I find so vexing. Mike Pence knows that he’s lying. Mike Pence knows that we know that he is lying, and yet Mike Pence and the administration continues lying.
Six, count ’em, six people tried to cross the southern border illegally who were in a terror database. Forty-one tried to cross the northern border. It’s incredible that he just keeps lying when we all know he’s lying and he knows that we know that he’s lying.
