Joy Behar to apologize to Christians about Pence joke

Joy Behar to apologize to Christians about Pence joke

Last month Behar derided Pence for saying he communicates with Jesus through prayer.

"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, hearing voices".

"That would make me mentally ill since I'm a Christian myself", she said when asked if she believes "Christians are mentally ill" the following day.

"You know, I give Joy Behar a lot of credit", Pence told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Monday.

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

The vice president concluded his answer by saying that he hoped Behar "and others on the airwaves will come to appreciate the meaning and, if I could say it, the joy that comes from faith and respect that". "She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate". "I sincerely apologize for what I said".

"So I think Vice-President Pence is right". I don't mean to offend people but apparently I keep doing it.

The vice president added that while that was enough for him, Ms. Behar had wronged tens of millions of Americans who deserve an apology too.

Behar's call to Pence was undisclosed until Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked about the controversy during last week's meeting with investors.

"I said to Joy, 'Of course, I forgive you".

McCain added that she has sometimes felt that "liberals say, "We need to be tolerant of everyone" except prolifers, except Trump supporters, except gun owners, except for everyone in the red in the middle of the country".

In contrast, "Pence didn't back down and that sets a good standard", Showalter opined.
