After admitting he often prays for his critics, Vice President Mike Pence’s comments were immediately mocked on Twitter, with many chastising the VP for his choice of words.
The great irony is, however, that the VP most likely took a moment to pray for them.
Speaking at an event hosted by the Alliance Defending Freedom, Pence said: “No. 1 is spend more time on your knees than on the internet.” Obviously, the Vice President was alluding to the act of praying to God.
Unsurprisingly, however, his comments were immediately mocked on Twitter, with many chastising the VP for his choice of words.
The widespread response was, in essence, a damning indictment of our modern digital era — we simply cannot allow someone to say something civil without engaging in a response of mockery. Pence, through simply dishing out a piece of sound spiritual advice, had somehow invited the criticism and online trolling that he was addressing — how ironic!
