The delightfully snarky and no-holds-barred comedian Nicole Arbour is blasting late-night host Jimmy Kimmel for spreading fake news about Vice President Mike Pence.
Arbour posted a video demolishing Kimmel’s narrative and requesting he apologize to his viewers on the next episode of his ABC show.
“Did Jimmy Kimmel just release 100% fake news that him and his team created, lying to his audience?” Arbour asks in her video response. “Yup. Yup he did.”
Arbour then played the footage that Kimmel’s show aired, and the real unedited footage.
Kimmel was busted for playing a misleading clip of Vice President Pence carrying boxes of personal protective equipment into a hospital on Thursday.
During the clip, Pence had joked with the staff that he should carry an empty box in for a photo opportunity, but in the full footage of the encounter it was clear that he was joking around. Kimmel only aired a small portion of the exchange, however, to deceive his viewers.
“Here he is with no mask on, wheeling boxes of PPEs into a health care center, and doing his best to lift them, what a hero… since it was going so well, and also because he didn’t realize he had a mic on, Magic Mike decided to keep it going, listen in closely here,” Kimmel said before playing a snippet of the video.
In the portion that he aired, Pence made a joke about carrying empty boxes.
“Well can I carry the extra ones? Just for the camera?” Pence asked.

“Mike Pence pretending to carry empty boxes of PPEs into a hospital is a perfect metaphor for who he is and what he’s doing. A big box of nothing,” Kimmel said.
In the full footage, aired on C-SPAN, it is clear Pence is joking about carrying the empty boxes and the person he is fooling around with says “Absolutely. They’re a lot easier!” Pence laughs before shutting the van door.
The clip was deleted from Kimmel’s social media after BuzzFeed News deputy director David Mack pointed out how misleading their segment was.

Kimmel went on to tweet “apologies” for his fake news, but still took a jab at the Trump administration in the process, Fox News noted in their report.
“It would appear that @vp was joking about carrying empty boxes for a staged publicity stunt. The full video reveals that he was carrying full boxes for a staged publicity stunt. My apologies. I know how dearly this administration values truth,” Kimmel wrote on Friday.

In her video blasting her fellow comedian, Arbour asserts that “Kimmel you got caught, and now I’ve got to wonder how much of what you tell me on the daily on your show is also bullsh-t — just against people you don’t like. I’m sure you’ ll issue an apology and retraction, tonight, on your show.”
Arbour concludes by noting “the level of disrespect that you have to have for your audience to just lie to their faces and hope that they spread it.”
Woman Paints Over Black Lives Matter Mural in NYC, Shouts ‘Bill de Blasio Doesn’t Care About Black People!’
De Blasio is planning to paint four more of the ridiculous murals throughout the city.
The state-sanctioned Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower in New York City has been vandalized by a protester for the third time since it was painted.
A black woman covered multiple letters of the bright yellow eyesore with multiple gallons of black paint while shouting “Refund the Police” and “Bill de Blasio doesn’t care about black people!”
The woman urged people to find Jesus while she worked, attempting to cover as much as she could before being detained and arrested.
The mural was also vandalized the previous day by four protesters who oppose the Marxist political message painted in the street by the mayor. The brave activists shouted “Blue Lives Matter” and “All Lives Matter” as they painted over the city-approved vandalism.

Onlookers shouted at them hysterically as they did it.
NBC New York reports “the alleged vandals threw the paint in what appeared to be a coordinated effort involving about 10 people around 4 p.m. Friday. There were plans going around on social media with a group of people discussing doing the stunt.”
On Monday, the mural was splattered with red paint.
Unlike the rioters and looters that took over his city recently, he has made it a priority to arrest those who dare to vandalize it. In fact, Mayor de Blasio has seemingly been more concerned with protecting the tacky painting than about the rising crime in the city since he tied the hands of his police force.

War on Christianity: Virgin Mary Statue Honoring WWII Servicemen Lit on Fire in Massachusetts
Imagine if this was happening to any other religion.
Following three churches being lit ablaze across the US over the weekend, a statue of the Virgin Mary honoring fallen WWII soldiers has been lit on fire in Massachusetts.
The statue at St. Peter Parish in Dorchester was found charred around 10 p.m. Saturday.
“Fire investigators say it appears someone set fire to plastic flowers that were in the hands of the statue, which caused the face and upper body of the statue to be burned,” NBC Boston reports. “The charred statue startled parishioners on Sunday, with one man saying he was ‘very disturbed’ by the incident.”
“This is ridiculous,” a woman added. “This needs to stop.”
St. Peter Parish’s Pastor Currie said he would like to help the person who did this and believes that they are a “troubled soul.”
“This is obviously someone disturbed, someone who has a lot of trouble, a troubled soul,” he said. “But I know our Lady in Heaven is looking down on the soul, or whoever it might’ve been, and saying, ‘I love you! If you need help, come get help. We’re here for you.'”
The Boston Police are asking anyone with information on the incident to contact them at 617-343-4335.
Over the weekend, three churches were burned across the nation.
A fire destroyed Faith Tabernacle Pentecostal Church in Elkmont, Alabama Friday night.
On Saturday a man drove into a church in Ocala, Florida, before lighting it on fire.
Next, a fire destroyed the roof of 249-Year-Old San Gabriel Mission Church in California.
Had these been places of worship for any other religion, it would have been leading the news cycle for at least a week.
Communist Hammer and Sickle Painted on North Carolina WWII Memorial
The names on the memorial “are veterans and deserve the honor, respect, and dignity.”
The Communist hammer and sickle symbol was spray painted on a North Carolina World War II Memorial over the weekend.
The memorial in the Evergreen Cemetery in Charlotte honors over 500 people from the county who died in the war.
The vandals also wrote “Glory to the day of heroism June 19, 1986,” a likely reference to the violent Communist Party of Peru.
“On June 18, 1986, the Shining Path began to protest the Peruvian government’s use of torture on its members and their movement to different prisons,” the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported when another statue was vandalized with the same message in May. “Although the Peruvian government at first tried to negotiate with the Shining Path, the members refused, he said, and the government sent troops into the prisons the next day — bombing two facilities and executing inmates who were in the Shining Path.”
Over 200 people were killed.
“That day immediately began to be called ‘The Day of Heroism.’”
Fox News reports that a portion of the WWII monument that read, “Dedicated to the memory of the Mecklenburg heroes of World War II who made the supreme sacrifice that you might live in liberty, freedom and peace,” was also covered in yellow paint.
