Pence on Michelle Wolf jokes: ‘I count it all joy when I endure trials or criticisms’

Vice President Pence brushed aside comedian Michelle Wolf's recent jokes about his stance on abortion as an occupational hazard. 

Wolf made fun of Pence, a devout Christian, for his staunch anti-abortion views at the annual at the White House correspondents' dinner last weekend, calling him a "weird little guy."


"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."

Wolf has faced steep criticism from Trump and Republicans for her monologue, where she skewered the Trump administration, Congress and the media, among other targets.
