Vice President Mike Pence is a class act. So it’s no surprise that he responded in an amazing way when crude comedian Michelle wolf joked about him an abortion at the White House Correspondents association dinner.
As LifeNews reproted, The backlash against the disgusting performance of comedienne Michelle Wolf is growing. So much so that even the Washington Post writes that this year’s dinner “should be the last.” Wolf even joked about abortion and by the end of evening, few people were laughing.
Many in the room were clearly outraged by Wolf’s two back-to-back jokes about abortion. First, Wolf said, “Mike Pence is also very anti-choice. He thinks abortion is murder. Which, first of all, don’t knock it ’till you try it. And when you do try it, really knock it. You gotta get that baby out of there.”
Groans could be heard as this was said. Wolf followed it up by saying, “I know a lot of you are very anti-abortion. You know, unless it’s the one you got for your secret mistress.”

But Mike Pence took the disgusting jokes in stride. He responded to Michelle Wolf’s WHCD jokes with a Bible verse, insisting that he took the criticism and ridicule as “joy.”
“I’m pro-life and I don’t apologize for it,” Pence told CBN News in an interview published Thursday. “It comes with the territory.”
He quoted the book of James, saying, “As the Bible says, I count it all joy when I endure trials or criticisms.”
Pence also replied by lavishing praise on President Donald Trump as “the most pro-life president” of his lifetime.
“I’m pro-life and I don’t apologize for it,” Pence replied. “And I couldn’t be more honored to serve shoulder to shoulder with the most pro-life president in my lifetime,” Pence said. “I mean, President Donald Trump has taken one step after another to affirm this administration’s commitment to the sanctity of life”
