Mike Pence is likely the most useless Vice President ever, and, as if we needed more evidence of that, Pence has made a spectacle of himself on camera. Pence is Trump’s loyal lapdog, always standing just behind the president, nodding and gazing adoringly at his master. This time, Trump wasn’t there, and the entire spotlight was on Pence, which is probably why he forgot he had a mic on.
Pence recently visited a nursing home to deliver PPE or personal protective equipment to staff and patients residing there, but there’s just one small problem.
The boxes were empty.

The video begins with Pence pushing a cart with two boxes on it. He stops the cart at the entrance of the nursing home and barely manages to unload the boxes at the door. Then Pence returns to the van for more boxes, at which time he is told that they are empty.
Pence, forgetting that he was mic’d, said:
“Well, can I carry the empty ones, just for the camera?”
See, in America, it’s not about what you can do for your country, it’s what you can pretend to do, because so long as it’s on camera, it can’t be refuted. Unless you’re dumb enough to not realize your voice is being recorded too.
People responding to Kimmel’s tweet were astonished at the idiocy of Pence. You can see what they are saying below:
