Joy Behar Apologizes: 'I Think Vice President Pence Is Right'

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

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

'It's one thing to talk to Jesus.

Behar said: "That's called mental illness. if I'm not correct, he's hearing voices". "I was raised to respect everyone's religious faith", Behar said.

Behar's call to Pence was undisclosed until Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked about the controversy during last week's meeting with investors. And I'm like, Jesus ain't say that ...

In response, Behar claimed that Pence was mentally ill because he believes God talks to him.

Behar had previously apologized to Pence personally in a phone call, but broadened her sorry scope to include all Christians after Pence encouraged her to do so in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

"I sincerely apologize for what I said", she added, looking as if she just drank sour milk.

He said he told her that it was also important to apologize to all that were upset by what she said. After Bozell became aware of Behar's public apology, Bozell came forward with another statement, saying the MRC's campaign against The View and Joy Behar had concluded.

"The View" showed a segment of Newman telling her fellow competitors that Pence, an evangelical Christian, was scary and "extreme" and that "he thinks Jesus tells him to say things". Behar finally addressed the viewers and offered a twelve-second apology on the Tuesday, March 13 edition of The View.

"Yes, she did speak to Vice President Pence, they had a great, very nice conversation", Stankey said.

"It's just simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance", Pence responded a day later.

Co-host Sunny Hostin said, "I'm Catholic; I'm a faithful person, but I don't know that I want my vice president speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him". He added that he was glad she apologized and that he "takes exception" to the comments.

"When they do that, this whole matter will be put to rest", Bozell concluded.

The host's remarks were called "slander" and "anti-Christian bigotry".

Show moderator Whoopi Goldberg quickly moved on.
