Mike Pence Says He Forgave Joy Behar for Religious "Insult"

Mike Pence Says He Forgave Joy Behar for Religious

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

In case you missed this whole feud, the VP was ticked off last month over comments the comedian made while discussing Omarosa's "Big Brother" warning that Pence is an "extreme" Christian who believes "Jesus tells him to say things". "I sincerely apologize for what I said".

"It's one thing to talk to Jesus". "Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a unsafe mental illness?"

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

He said Behar owes an apology to them on her show. "She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate".

"It's an insult not to me, but to the vast majority of the American people who like me cherish their faith", he said.

"What do you say to the tens of millions of Christians, and President Trump supporters, that your networks have so blatantly offended and ascribed hateful labels?" shareholder Justin Danhof asked Iger.

Pence added, "I felt it was important that I defend the faith of tens of millions of Americans against that kind of slander".

"I give Joy Behar a lot of credit".

Mr. Pence's interview, scheduled to air Monday night on the Fox News program "Hannity", confirmed an account by Disney CEO Bob Iger at a shareholder meeting last week that Ms. Behar had apologized to Mr. Pence.

MRC President Brent Bozell issued a statement declaring that Behar's private apology was "not almost enough" and promised to continue his campaign against "anti-Christian bigotry" at the network.

A day after her initial joke, Behar attempted to clarify her comments on the air.

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.

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