Late night host Seth Meyers blasted Vice President Mike Pence during his latest show and claimed he is “just as slippery of a liar” as President Donald Trump.
Meyers said Pence “doesn’t get as much credit for lying” as the President, because of his more formal way of speaking.
The comedian said Pence “crinkles his brow and he uses a solemn tone,” when lying, citing footage from 2017 in which Pence denied the Trump campaign had any contact with Russians.
“And, you know, he doesn’t get as much credit for it, but Mike Pence is just as slippery of a liar as anyone else in this administration,” Meyers said. “The only difference is when he lies he crinkles his brow and uses a solemn tone. And when Trump lies, he sweats like a fugitive being chased by a pack of police dogs.”
The late-night host then showed different videos of President Trump and VP Pence addressing the Russia rumors.
“It’s like when the cops separate two suspects in a bank heist and one of them says, ‘I’d like to speak to my lawyer.’ And the other guy is in the next room screaming, ‘It was all Mike’s idea!’” Meyers said.
