VP Pence: Joy Behar called and apologized so I forgave her

Joy Behar, who mocked Vice President's Mike Pence's Christian faith and then resisted apologizing, has now done so.

On an episode of "The View" last month, Ms. Behar agreed with co-host Sunny Hostin's discomfort with "my vice president, um - speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him". "She was very honest, and she apologized and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you've been forgiven", he added. The conversation had been spurned by a warning from Omarosa Manigault-Newman on Big Brother, who said of the vice president: "I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things. That's called 'mental illness, ' if I'm not correct".

So far, Behar has not apologized on the same forum in which she made the insult jokes against Christianity that many found offensive.

Last week, Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked about the spat between View co-host Joy Behar and VP Mike Pence during a shareholders meeting.

"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", the source reportedly stated. "I was raised to respect everyone's religious faith and I fell short of that", Behar said at the start of the show. "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". "She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate".

"I think Vice President Pence is right". Iger revealed in his response to that question that Behar had personally apologized to Pence.

"I give Joy Behar a lot of credit".

A day after her initial joke, Behar attempted to clarify her comments on the air.

The right-wing Media Research Center launched an effort to hold "The View" accountable for promoting "anti-Christian bigotry", according to an open letter to ABC News from the group's president, Brent Bozell.

In contrast, "Pence didn't back down and that sets a good standard", Showalter opined.
