“It’s two-on-one,” the Indiana governor said on Fox News’s “Hannity." "The media’s going to continue to do Hillary’s work for her.

“The media is overwhelmingly biased in electing Hillary Clinton the next president of the United States. I think it’s amazing. My late father used to say, ‘It is what it is.’ ”

Pence cited news coverage this week of Clinton’s campaign receiving praise from the father of a mass shooter as one example of unfairness.

“The father of the terrorist who took 49 lives in Orlando was sitting behind Hillary Clinton,” he said of the Democratic presidential nominee's rally in Kissimmee, Fla., last Monday. “That got a fraction of the attention that Donald TrumpDonald TrumpUkraine's president compares UN to 'a retired superhero' Collins to endorse LePage in Maine governor comeback bid Heller won't say if Biden won election MORE’s remarks about protecting the Second Amendment did."

Pence then cited stories about GOP reluctance to rally around Trump, the party's presidential nominee, as more evidence of journalistic prejudice.

“We’re getting support from members of Congress from literally all over the Congress,” Pence said. “Those who are giving their support are not getting anywhere near as much attention as those who say they’re not or they’re not there yet.”

The father of the Orlando shooter on Monday praised Clinton’s presidential bid as “good for the United States” after attending her campaign event.

“It’s a democratic party, so everyone can join,” Seddique Mateen said of his appearance at Clinton’s event last Monday.

Mateen’s son opened fire on Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla., on June 12 in what would become the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. He was killed in a shootout with police at the nightclub.

Trump, meanwhile, is weathering criticism after seemingly joking that gun owners should take action against Clinton and her potential Supreme Court picks should she be elected president on Tuesday.

“By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks,” he said during a rally in Wilmington, N.C. "Though the Second Amendment people, maybe there is. I don’t know."
