“I always tell people that to know President Trump is to know someone whose word is his bond,” Pence claimed Thursday during a “Life Wins!” event in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Twitter users quickly reminded Pence of the thousands of lies that Trump has told throughout his time in office.
“Do you think these guys wake up in the morning and say to themselves ‘What is the craziest thing I can say in defense of the boss today?’” asked Al Jazeera presenter Mehdi Hasan.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) weighed in as well.
“This is a ridiculous statement,” he tweeted. “It would make more sense with a laugh track.”
So his bond is used toilet paper. Got it.— Patricia Arquette (@PattyArquette) September 4, 2020
20,000 lies while in office as of July.— Jo (@JoJoFromJerz) September 3, 2020
He averages 12 lies a day.
His word isn’t his bond.
He’s literally incapable of telling the truth.
He lies about everything, big and small.
Crowd size and Stormy Daniels, the place his father was born.
All lies.https://t.co/5DJFaqC7NB pic.twitter.com/EBgaqkrlXT
Do you think these guys wake up in the morning and say to themselves ‘What is the craziest thing I can say in defense of the boss today?’ Or maybe they have a bet going with other WH colleagues as to who can go out furthest on a limb for POTUS? https://t.co/xsvQdsisrj— Mehdi Hasan (@mehdirhasan) September 3, 2020

It's the *very* deep breath before the hilariously obvious and insulting lie that makes this. https://t.co/Q2aeFUGk2a— Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) September 3, 2020

To know that somebody so shallow can say something so vapid about someone so empty https://t.co/2Z1hwtYXOK— Dom Joly (@domjoly) September 3, 2020
Completely disqualifying. By saying this, Mike Pence should never ever be elected to any public office again. https://t.co/R2UwVsxeUD— Joe Walsh (@WalshFreedom) September 3, 2020
And people say Mike Pence isn't funny https://t.co/V0LHmoQspw— Justin Baragona (@justinbaragona) September 3, 2020
