Joy Behar Apologizes on 'The View' for Mike Pence 'Mental Illness' Joke

Joy Behar, who mocked Vice President's Mike Pence's Christian faith and then resisted apologizing, has now done so.

During a discussion of Pence on the daytime talk show last month, Behar said, "it's one thing to talk to Jesus".

Behar responded: "It's one thing to talk to Jesus".

Multiple reports revealed that Iger was asked during the company's shareholder meeting on Thursday about the controversial tirade of Behar against the United States vice president during the daytime talk show where told her co-hosts that Pence's faith is a "mental illness" during the show's February 13 broadcast. "That's called 'mental illness, ' if I'm not correct".

On C-SPAN the next day, Pence attacked ABC, saying that the network should not have broadcast a "forum that compared Christianity to mental illness".

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

Pence reportedly told Behar she should apologize to Christians during a private phone call, but the vice president doubled down on Fox News and apparently "The View" co-host took notice. "I was raised to respect everyone's religious faith, and I fell short of that. She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate". "She called me. She was very honest, and she apologized". "So I think Vice President Pence is right", she agreed. "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". "I'm a great admirer of Mike Pence and his family", she said.

The right-wing Media Research Center launched an effort to hold "The View" accountable for promoting "anti-Christian bigotry", according to an open letter to ABC News from the group's president, Brent Bozell.

"So does mine, but I'm not as good at it as you", Hannity remarked. "He encouraged her to make the same apology publicly on the show that she did privately to him".
