Mike Pence Urges View Co-Host Joy Behar to Apologize to ‘Millions of Christians’

Vice President Mike Pence reportedly accepted comedian Joy Behar’s apology for mocking his faith, but he had hoped the ABC television star would make a bigger apology to the “millions of Christians” who tune in to The View. “She apologized to the vice president, he accepted and said he wasn’t offended by her comment for his own sake but on behalf of the millions of Christians who watch ABC and her show,” a White House source told Fox News. “He encouraged her to make the same apology publicly on the show that she did privately to him.” Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed at a shareholder’s meeting Thursday that Behar, who co-hosts the daytime talk show The View, apologized to Pence for her comments saying that the vice president suffered from a “mental illness” for speaking to Jesus. “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus,” Behar said on February 13. “It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct, hearing voices.” “My question is, can he talk to Mary Magdalene when his wife isn’t in the room?” she added. Pence described Behar’s comments as an example of “religious intolerance” and an “insult” to many Americans who are faithful. “To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” Pence said. “It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.” More than 30,000 callers complained to ABC television network over Behar’s comments after Media Research Center president Brent Bozell launched a campaign to target the network’s advertisers. Behar has a history of criticizing conservatives and President Trump on the daytime talk show. On a February 27 broadcast of The View, she suggested that attendees of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) have a “penchant for Nazis.”

Joy is such a loser..  And, while her apology to VP Mike Pence was a step in the right direction (whether she did it of her own volition, or was probably directed to do so), she didn’t have the courage or integrity to do it on tv.  She’s a nauseating, hate-filled, bigot…and she thinks shes witty, when really, she’s stunningly stupid.

More Than 30,000 Callers Blast ABC over View Co-Host Joy Behar’s ‘Anti-Christian Bigotry’

More than 30,000 callers blasted ABC for allowing The View’s Joy Behar to spew “anti-Christian bigotry,” but the parent company has not taken action on any of their complaints. An estimated 30,588 angry viewers called the television network as of Wednesday morning, outraged after ABC broadcast an episode of The View this month in which co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin mocked Vice President Mike Pence for his religious beliefs. Media Research Center president Brent Bozell urged the television network to apologize for allowing religious bigotry to be tolerated on network television. The MRC posted contact information for 14 advertisers that broadcast on ABC, as well as information on how to get in touch with the president of ABC television network. “I am sure the advertisers of ‘The View’ will be just as appalled as I am about the anti-Christian remarks made on the show,” Bozell wrote. Behar and Hostin criticized the vice president for voicing his belief in Jesus Christ on the February 13 broadcast. “Look, I’m Catholic, I’m a faithful person, but I don’t know that I want my vice president talking in tongues,” Hostin remarked. Behar replied that Pence’s talking to Jesus is not a sign of faith, but a sign of “mental illness.” “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct, hearing voices,” Behar said. The ABC television network, which includes entities such as ABC News and Disney, has not yet commented on the matter or addressed the callers protesting the network. Despite the outcry from ABC’s viewers, the daytime talk show has not toned down its anti-conservative rhetoric. On Monday’s broadcast of The View, Behar said attendes of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) “have a penchant for Nazis.”

The View is, of course, mindless garbage..  And, Joy Behar is so nauseatingly stupid it boggles the mind that ABC has allowed her to be on “Baba Wawa’s” show (The View) this long.  But, her brazen attack on those of Christian faith is a bridge too far even for Joy.  ABC needs to fire her immediately, and apologize to the millions and millions Joy has offended….as well as the Vice President.

Pence slams Joy Behar, ABC News over ‘religious intolerance’

Vice President Mike Pence delivered a jaw-dropping rebuke of ABC News after “The View” host Joy Behar compared Christianity to mental illness. “To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” Pence said Wednesday on C-SPAN. “It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.” Behar’s anti-Christian remarks were in response to a segment on Omarosa Manigault Newman, the reality television star turned White House staffer turned reality television star. “As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence — everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life,” Omarosa said in a clip from “Celebrity Big Brother.” “I am Christian. I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things,” Omarosa told her fellow contestants. Well, that bit of news was more than Behar and the other gals on “The View” could stomach. “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct, hearing voices,” Behar declared. Pence said on C-SPAN that his faith is the most important thing in his life. “My faith sustains me in all that I do,” he said. The vice president said “The View” hosts insulted the “vast majority of the American people who cherish faith.” “It demonstrates how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people that you could have a major network like ABC permit a forum for invective against religion like that,” he said. Well, if hearing the voice of God means that a Christian is mentally insane – then add my name to that list. Because – just like Vice President Pence — I too — have heard the voice of God. And I suspect many faithful followers of Jesus have heard His voice — including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Does Behar believe that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was mentally insane, too? Later on Tuesday’s program, Behar backtracked slightly — but held firm to her belief that listening to Jesus is odd behavior. “I think Mike Pence, say what you want about him and his religiosity. I don’t think he’s mentally ill. Even though he is saying he hears voices I don’t think he’s that crazy,” she said. Oh, she only thinks Christians are just a little crazy. Whatever. If ABC News wants to employ an anti-Christian bigot — that is their business. It’s a free country. But let’s be honest — had Joy Behar said about gay people what she said about Christians — she would’ve been fired on the spot and hauled out of the studio on live television.

Agreed, Todd.  Veteran culture warrior Todd Starnes is responsible for that piece.  Todd, of course, is exactly right.  Joy Behar is a nauseating, extreme liberal blow hard.  And, if you listen to her talk, she’s stunningly stupid.  She just spouts whatever liberal talking points the DNC, or other Democratic party organ, feeds her, and really has no command of the issues or the nuances of policies, etc.  And, she goes into these silly, ad hominem personal attacks on various random Republicans because…well, they’re Republicans.  That’s it.  If you’re a Republican, she hates you and is very open about it.  She won’t listen to you or consider a viewpoint that isn’t in line with what her approved, Democrat party talking points consider acceptable.  And, in fact, she’ll shout you down and belittle you and your viewpoints if they are conservative or Republican in nature.  Have ya ever noticed how much turn over there is in the one Republican position on The View over the years?
