'The View' host Joy Behar apologizes for Christianity comment

Share

Monday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity", Vice President Mike Pence called on ABC's "The View" co-host Joy Behar to apologize for "slander" against Christians. But Vice President Mike Pence couldn't handle the joke. She picked up the phone.

"It's one thing to talk to Jesus, It's another thing when Jesus talks to you", Behar quipped at the time.

"The View" played the clip of Pence at the outset of Tuesday's show, and Behar responded as Pence hoped.

The spat dates back to last month, when Behar and her co-hosts were discussing comments that former West Wing staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman had made on "Celebrity Big Brother". It's another thing when Jesus talks to you.

While Pence forgave Behar, he encouraged her to publically apologize.

"I just think it demonstrates how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people". "I'd like to be light about it, but I really can't - not for my sake, but for the tens of millions of Americans who cherish their faith, I just, I can't be silent".

Prior to Behar's personal call to Pence, the vice president issued a statement during the C-Span that took place a day after the tirade was aired about his opinion, saying that comparing Christianity to mental illness is simply wrong. "I sincerely apologize for what I said".

Bestselling author and conservative radio talk show host Larry Elder tweeted Saturday, "If @JoyVBehar has said 'people who talk to Allah had a mental illness, ' she'd have been placed under 24/7 security protection".

Last week, Disney CEO Bob Iger became the first person to break the news that Behar had made an apology to Pence. While claiming he accepted her apology, he then passive aggressively suggested she needed to make it public.

"Joy Behar apologised to Vice President Pence directly".

By the end of February, the MRC's campaign had led to at least 30,000 calls insisting that Behar apologize, as well as 6,000 calls to the daytime show's sponsors, according to Fox News. He added that he was glad she apologized and that he "takes exception" to the comments.

"You and I know that criticism comes with public life", Pence added.
