Jimmy Kimmel on Friday released a video showing Vice President Mike Pence joking about carrying empty boxes of personal protective equipment into a health care facility "for the cameras." Kimmel labeled the entire ordeal as a public relations stunt.

"A big box of nothing, delivering another box of nothing," Kimmel said in the now-deleted tweet. 

But the real video shows Pence made the comment after carrying actual boxes of PPE.

Twitter rightfully labeled the video as "manipulated media," which can be seen in McDermott's tweet with the highly edited video.

Kimmel issued an apology. 

But the most popcorn-worthy moment of the entire ordeal came when Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough for sharing Kimmel's video. 

Scarborough deleted the original tweet and also apologized to Pence. 

Instead of owning up to sharing fake news, Scarborough decided to launch an attack on Cruz.

But the senator gave a mic-drop worthy response, reminding Joe that he has continually hailed attacks on President Trump since he took office.

Apparently Cruz's remarks really triggered Joe. He replied in a mini thread, claiming the senator sold his soul to Trump. And somehow what universities and colleges the two went to have some sort of bearing in this argument?

The unhinged, anti-Trump BS that comes out of the media's mouth is precisely why the American people can't stand them. It's why CNN and MSNBC have low ratings. It's why more Americans are doing their own research and, quite frankly, started tuning out the talking heads on major networks and no longer reading the opinions of the "highly esteemed" that are published in the New York Times and Washington Post.
