Jimmy Kimmel's crack team caught the hot mic of Mike Pence on C-SPAN yesterday, while his team wheeled in empty boxes of PPE's to a medical facility in Alexandria, Virginia. Pence and his entourage weren't wearing masks themselves, of course. The ridiculous photo-op for the assembled media was more of the same from these sad sacks, a perfect metaphor for the entire administration. Or as Kimmel described it, a big box of nothin' delivering another box of nothin'.

UPDATE AND EDITOR'S NOTE: This post has been rated Partially False on Facebook because apparently Pence moved two small boxes with contents and pushed a cart with two full boxes to the door, helping to offload one of them.

Kimmel comments:
