The cohosts over at ABC’s ‘The View’ tried to turn the page on Joy Behar’s viciously anti-Christian comments Thursday, just one day after Vice President Pence called the show “intolerant” for implying he was “mentally ill” over his religious beliefs.
“Do you think Christians are mentally ill?” asked co-host Whoopi Goldberg.
“That would make me mentally ill since I’m a Christian myself. That would make my mother mentally ill, my father, my aunt, my daughter. Of Course not. I don’t mean to offend people but apparently, I keep doing it,” deflected Behar. “It was a joke. Comedians are in danger these days.”
“This is a show that has had great relationships with all kinds of leaders of different religions,” added Whoopi. “We sit with each other, we don’t always agree, and we listen. We do make jokes, it is what happens on this show. You don’t have to agree with what we’re doing, but you have to understand that it does happen.”

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.”

BRAZILE VS BEHAR: Watch Donna Brazile SHUT DOWN Joy Behar On LIVE TV
Former Democratic National Committee chief Donna Brazile went head-to-head with The View’s Joy Behar on Tuesday, firing back at the liberal host after she accused the DNC boss of “giving red-meat to Trump” supporters with her new bombshell exposé of Hillary’s troubled campaign.
“You threw a lot of people under the bus. The DNC is mad at you, Robby Mook is mad, maybe even Hillary might be mad,” said Behar. “Here’s the question I have for you: Why the timing of this book? Today’s Election Day, why are you giving red-meat to Trump’s side?”
“A lot of people ask me that. I set my launch for my book when I sent in my proposal,” fired-back Brazile. “I thought a year after a Presidential election, that’s when you have a lot of debate and dissent. Everyone is writing books. Mr. Biden’s book is coming out, Mr. Sanders’ book has come out, Mrs. Clinton’s book.”
“I wanted to tell my story about what happened. I wasn’t writing to make someone upset, I was upset. I cried enough for everybody, I apologized enough for everybody,” she added.
