joy behar apologizes mike pence

“The View” co-host and known liberal bigot Joy Behar reportedly apologized to Vice President Mike Pence for despicable comments she made about his Christian faith last month.

Wall Street Journal reporter Joe Flint first tweeted Thursday that Disney CEO Bob Iger said during a shareholder meeting that he “took exception” to Behar’s comment, but that she apologized to Pence.

Los Angeles Times reporter Daniel Miller also tweeted that Behar apologized and further stated that Iger “agrees that was appropriate.”

Disney owns ABC, the network that airs “The View.” Following Behar’s comment, many industry watchdogs suggested that ABC News separate itself from the show and move it over to the network’s entertainment division.

On the Feb. 13 episode of the show, “The View” panel criticized Pence’s faith when co-host Sunny Hostin said, “I don’t know that I want my vice president, um — speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him.” Behar then chimed in and equated hearing from Jesus with “mental illness.”

Pence shot back at the comment, seemingly suggesting that ABC put an end to “The View.” “To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” he said. “It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.”

This is far from the first time Behar has offended an entire group of people while on “The View.” She routinely attacks Republicans as a whole and disparages women with whom she disagrees. In October 2016, she was forced to issue an apology after victim-blaming the accusers of former President Bill Clinton.

However, when Oprah Winfrey recently said that God hasn’t told her to run for president, Behar was notably silent. Clearly, Oprah’s affiliation with the Democratic Party kept her immune from Behar’s ridicule.
