VP Pence slammed for praising free press in Myanmar while Trump attacks reporters back home

Vice President Mike Pence took to Twitter Tuesday morning to praise the release of two Reuters journalists who had been imprisoned for over 500 days because they reported on the murder of ten Rohingya Muslim men and boys by security forces in the nation of Myanmar:

The news that these two brave reporters is indeed good news, but as many Twitter users pointed out, Pence’s celebration is the height of hypocrisy in light of the fact that his boss, President Donald Trump, often refers to the American news media as the “enemy of the people.”
