2016-2021: So when did Mike Pence become expendable? [View all]

I always assumed that Pence was picked as VP in order to assuage those evangelicals who might be concerned about Trump's sordid past. Maybe it was. It isn't like Pence was immensely popular for any political expertise. But somehow, over a few years, Pence became totally irrelevant except as a Trump rubber stamper and hanger on. Whatever major players he had seemed to bring to the table were now in the Trump camp and no longer gave a s*** about Pence, even to the point that they still support Trump after the Capitol invasion and the attempts to capture and/or kill him.
Can we now put to bed this fable that Evangelicals are remotely concerned with any morality that doesn't fit into a political narrative? I think the answer is quite apparent.

To clarify:
Everyone is expendable to Trump. The OP is about Evangelicals, the Republican party and the now exposed facade of morality that brought Pence into the equation to begin with. Says a lot about Evangelicals.
