During the Vice Presidential debate this Monday, Mike Pence tried to do a lot of cleaning up for his running mate Donald Trump, but as a new ad from the Hillary Clinton campaign devastatingly points out, that cleanup effort mainly consisted of Pence lying about the things that have come out of Trump’s mouth.
According to polls, many agreed that Pence came out of the debate with a slight edge, but the ad aims to demonstrate that if Pence is going to claim a win, he did it by outright lying.
Showing segments from the debate where Pence squarely denied that Trump said certain things, the ad then cuts to past clips of Trump actually making the comments that Pence denied he made.
“At the #VPDebate, Mike Pence tried really, really hard to deny pretty much everything Donald Trump has said and done,” Clinton said in a tweet. “Let’s replay the tape”
“It’s okay, Mike,” the ad concludes. “We’d have a hard time defending him, too.”
