Liberal comedian and host of ABC’s ‘The View’ Joy Behar finally apologized to millions of religious Americans Tuesday morning; saying she was “raised to respect” people of all faiths and that “she fell short of that.”
Behar was asked to weigh-in after Vice President Pence discussed the issue on ‘Hannity,’ saying he urged the left-wing comic to apologize to “tens of millions of Americans” who were offended when she equated religion with “mental illness.”

“You and I know that criticism comes with public life, but I felt that it was important that I defend the faith of tens of millions of Americans against that kind of slander,” Pence told Hannity. “I did encourage her to use the forum of that program to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended.”
“I think Vice President Pence is right,” said Behar. “I was raised to respect everyone’s religious faith, and I fell short of that. I sincerely apologize for what I said.”
BEHAR GOES NUCLEAR: The View Host Calls Pence’s CHRISTIAN FAITH a ‘Mental Illness’
Left-leaning comedian Joy Behar viciously attacked Vice President Mike Pence’s faith on Tuesday, equating his faith to a “mental illness” and mocking the former Governor of Indiana’s steadfast belief in the power of prayer.
The comic’s intolerant rant began after ‘The View’ played a clip of former White House adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman discussing the Vice President’s faith, where she baselessly claimed on reality television that “Jesus tells him to say things.”
“He’s not very popular at all,” said cohost Sunny Hostin. “I think when you have a Mike Pence who now sort of puts this religious veneer on things and calls people ‘values voters,’ I think we’re in a dangerous situation.”
“It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you,” added Behar. “That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct, he’s hearing voices.”

HELL FREEZES OVER: Joy Behar APOLOGIZES to MIKE PENCE After Mocking His Faith
Liberal comedian and co-host of ABC’s ‘The View’ reportedly apologized to Vice President Mike Pence after she publicly mocked his religious beliefs; claiming the national leader suffered from a “mental illness” because he believes in the power of prayer.
Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed Behar’s apology during a shareholder meeting Thursday, telling investors she apologized shortly after her outrageous comments.
“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?” asked Justin Danhof, a shareholder and general counsel for the National Center for Public Policy Research.
“Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a dangerous mental illness?” he pressed.
“I don’t know where I start. First of all, Joy Behar apologized to Vice President Pence directly. She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate,” said Iger.
“I don’t think it was right,” he said, distancing himself from Behar’s vicious smear.
The left-wing comedian made national headlines last month when she equated the Vice President’s religious faith and belief in prayer with a “mental illness,” baselessly claiming Pence was “hearing voices.”
