"I once invited President Trump to Bible study," Pence told the crowd, according to The Washington Post . "He really liked the passages about the smiting and perishing of thine enemies."
"As he put it, ‘Ya know, Mike, there’s some really good stuff in here,'" Pence claimed of Trump before he segued to the controversial recovery of classified documents at Trump's Mar-A-Lago.
Pence doubled down on his scathing jokes and used the Mar-A-Lago findings to further disprove Trump's claim of being Christian .
"I read that some of those classified documents they found at Mar-a-Lago were actually stuck in the president’s Bible," Pence continued on Trump. "Which proves he had absolutely no idea they were there."
While shocking, it wasn't the first time Pence publicly distanced himself from the Mar-A-Lago resident.
As the walls of justice began to close in on Trump — amid allegations of his company's alleged fraudulent business affairs to election denial claims, and, of course, the January 6 insurrection — Pence released a memoir, So Help Me God .
In November 2022, an op-ed from Pence , taken from his memoir, was published in the Wall Street Journal.
The memoir marked the beginning of a public back-and-forth between the ex-President and his former VP.
