Vice President Mike Pence engaged in some textbook gaslighting during an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show Wednesday evening, asserting that the Trump administration has overseen record job growth in the United States.

According to the vice president, Trump has “seen us through the worst pandemic in 100 years” and “we’ve already created more jobs in the last three months than Joe Biden and Barack Obama created in their eight years in office.”

The problem is, that’s simply not true, as The Balance notes: 8.9 million jobs were created during Obama’s presidency. In contrast, only 4.7 million jobs have been created during Trump’s tenure as president, and many of those have been lost during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Pence’s blatant lie led to a spate of fact-checking on social media:
