With just two days left until he and his boss are unemployed, Vice President Mike Pence thought he’d try and brag about the Trump administration’s so-called military accomplishments, only to get a brutal fact-check on social media.
Specifically, Pence crowed about how the administration didn’t get into any new wars during their four years in office:
I’m proud to report with just a few days left in our Administration, our Administration is the first in decades that did not get America into a new war. That’s Peace through Strength. pic.twitter.com/uiSNxi67aT

That was all it took for people to remind the Veep that he and Trump are responsible for failing to contain the COVID-19 pandemic which has claimed the lives of nearly 400,000 Americans and infected at least 24 million. There were also mentions of the insurrection at the Capitol two weeks ago:
Does someone else want to tell him? Or should I?
We’ve been at war for 11 days.
And he and Donald Trump cannot leave soon enough. https://t.co/8tAk33JJ1G

And yet more Americans will have died than in almost any other war in the history of the United States.

This administration is one of the few to cause a civil war. This is the only one where the President called the VP a p*ssy. It’s the only one where the President sent an angry mob to lynch the VP and the VP did nothing.

More Americans died under your watch than most wars… along with MAGA taking the capital… I wouldn’t be bragging about ‘peace through strength’.
