'The View's Joy Behar Apologizes For Mike Pence Mental Illness Remark

'The View's Joy Behar Apologizes For Mike Pence Mental Illness Remark

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

Behar said: "That's called mental illness. if I'm not correct, he's hearing voices". "I did encourage her to use the forum of that program to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended".

"I give Joy Behar a lot of credit". "She picked up the phone". The outspoken liberal said that when Jesus talks to you, it's called mental illness.

Behar received an onslaught of backlash from viewers following the anti-Christian remarks.

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". "I was raised to respect everyone's religious faith", Behar said. "I sincerely apologize for what I said", she said on Tuesday's episode of "The View".

So far, Behar has not apologized on the same forum in which she made the insult jokes against Christianity that many found offensive.

On Tuesday morning, Graham echoed that call, saying on Facebook that it was "disappointing that there's still been no action taken by the network and there hasn't been a public apology".

Stormy sued Trump in a bid to formally discharge the NDA last week, which she says she was made to sign in October 2016. Asked about the allegations last week, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders noted that Trump has denied them.


The offending remark was made on February 13 during a discussion of the Big Brother episode in which Omarosa Manigault spoke about Pence's religiosity.

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

Among the first to accept her apology: North Carolina-based evangelist Franklin Graham, who had called in a Tuesday Facebook post for her to publicly apologize.

After learning of the apology to the Vice President, Media Research Center's President, Brent Bozell issued a statement that it was "not almost enough" and promised the campaign against The View's advertisers would continue.

"The bigoted statements made about the Vice President's Christian faith offended hundreds of millions of Christians across the country, the largest faith group in the United States", Bozell told Fox News.

The host's remarks were called "slander" and "anti-Christian bigotry". "I would like to apologize to him and his family in particular". Thousands of Americans and the Media Research Center took offense to her comment and began a crusade, contacting the advertisers that sponsor The View to no avail.
