Vice President Pence faced outrage and the wrath of many a meme after news broke that he had used an AOL email address to conduct state business as Indiana's governor.
So, naturally, at a dinner with Washington journalists on Saturday, Pence tried to get ahead of the story with his own jokes.
"My wife said it was good for my image," Pence said. "She said now America knows I'm not stuck in the '50s. I'm stuck in the '90s."
Pence also read some other Twitter users' jokes, including, "Your grandma is hipper than Mike Pence" and "#MakeAOLGreatAgain."
It's not clear if he saw the photo of Hillary Clinton reading a newspaper on an airplane. The photo shows a report on Pence's email scandal on the front page and went viral.
Pence said there was "no comparison" between his email use and Clinton's.
Here's that Clinton photo.
People here can keep a secret. This isn't the White House.
Other politicians got their own digs in on Pence. USA Today reports House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) asked him to refill her coffee, as he was wearing a black tie to a white-tie event.
Pelosi also joked that Pence should have told Trump he was at a dinner with "enemies of the American people."
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) quipped that Pence was behind Stephen Bannon in the White House.
Pence fired back, saying "With all of (Senate Minority Leader) Chuck Schumer's obstruction, I'm just glad enough we had enough to fill the head table."
But he also promised that despite the differences between the Trump administration and the press, he supported the First Amendment. He also insisted "we've all just got to do better."
He echoed that sentiment on Twitter.
Hours beforehand, he demanded the Associated Press apologize for publishing his wife's email.
