Virginia’s governor falsely claimed that Republicans brought beer into the House to celebrate the passage of the AHCA.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) falsely claimed on CNN Friday that House Republicans were drinking “pallets and pallets of Bud Light beer” following the passage of the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Anchor John Berman called him out on the lie.
“What I really found highly offensive is, you know, they all celebrated last night,” McAuliffe said. “I read a story they were bringing in pallets and pallets of Bud Light beer that they tried to hide.”
“I think that ended up being not true,” Berman said.
McAuliffe stuck by his story nonetheless, responding, “Well, I think they did a lot of celebrating last night, John.”
However, Vice News’ Alexandra Jaffe caught up with the delivery to ask if the delivery was for the GOP conference:
