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

Disney chairman & CEO Bob Iger may not be as strong a candidate to replace Bud Selig as MLB commissioner as once believed

"So I think Vice President Pence is right", she agreed. "She called me. She was very honest, and she apologized and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you've been forgiven", Pence told Sean Hannity. On the reality show, the former White House aide told her fellow houseguests that Pence is an "extreme" Christian who believes that "Jesus tells him to say things". "That's called 'mental illness, ' if I'm not correct". Behar made a joke implying that Pence was mentally ill for saying he communicated with Jesus.

"I sincerely apologize for what I said", Behar added. "That you could have a major network like ABC permit a forum for invective against religion like that".

Watch Behar's apology in the video above. The MRC describes itself as the "nation's premier media watchdog", with the mission of exposing and neutralizing the "propaganda arm of the Left: the national news media".

"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. Pence was asked about it and responded by calling out ABC. ESPN is also owned by Disney. "I'm a great admirer of Mike Pence and his family", she said.


ABC News star Joy Behar apologized to mocking Vice President Mike Pence's Christian faith.

Behar's manager, Bill Stankey, confirmed to The Washington Post that Behar recently apologized to Pence during a phone conversation. Pence said was happy that Behar had apologized to him personally, but wanted her to apologize to all Christians. "He understood that Joy wasn't attacking anybody and that there was some miscommunication".

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". While claiming he accepted her apology, he then passive aggressively suggested she needed to make it public.
