"I hope that doesn't taint that relationship because they have been such supporters of one another and been a good team," co-host Ainsley Earhardt said during Thursday morning's program. 

"How could it be good after that!?" Doocy exclaimed.

In the days before a joint session of Congress met to certify President-elect Joe BidenJoe BidenTexas announces election audit in four counties after Trump demand Pennsylvania AG sues to block GOP subpoenas in election probe House passes sweeping defense policy bill MORE's victory in the November election, Trump pressured Pence, who presided over the legislative proceedings as the president of the Senate, to "come through" for him and stop or delay the process. 

“But he’s going to have a lot to say about it and you know one thing with him, you’re going to get straight shots. He’s going to call it straight,” Trump said during a rally in Georgia on Monday night.

But just minutes before Congress met on Wednesday, Pence issued a statement saying he had no intention of standing in the way of lawmakers' duty. 

"It is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not," Pence wrote. 

A mob of pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol just hours after Trump's remarks at a rally on the White House Ellipse earlier in the morning, forcing both chambers of Congress into a recess for most of the afternoon. 

In the resulting chaos, four people died and local police made dozens of arrests.

Congress reconvened shortly after 8 p.m. and certified Biden's win early Thursday.
