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

Screenshot

Joy Behar, who mocked Vice President's Mike Pence's Christian faith and then resisted apologizing, has now done so. "It's another thing when Jesus talks to you", she said, adding that hearing messages from God is a form of "mental illness". "When you have a Mike Pence who now puts this religious veneer on things and who calls people values voters, I think we're this a unsafe situation".

"So I think Vice President Pence is right", Behar said.

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.

Pence spoke out about Behar's comments on the Monday edition of the Fox News program, "Hannity."

"First of all, Joy Behar apologized to Vice President Pence directly", Iger answered.

On a Tuesday episode of the daytime talk show, co-host Behar reiterated the apology she made to the vice president in a private phone call.

The comments had Behar saying "it's one thing to talk to Jesus".

But Pence said he also encouraged Behar to publicly "apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended".

The Kremlin has denied any involvement in the incident and said anti-Russian hysteria was being whipped up by the British media. Skripal, who was shown wearing a track suit in a cage in court during his sentencing, was jailed for 13 years in 2006.

No matter how far Left she is, Behar revealed she agreed with the conservative Pence.

"The View" played the clip of Pence at the outset of Tuesday's show, and Behar responded as Pence hoped. "I sincerely apologize for what I said", she offered. However, the Vice President made it clear that he wasn't offended out of self-concern but on behalf of the millions of Christians who watch The View.

"That would make me mentally ill since I'm a Christian myself", she said when asked if she believes "Christians are mentally ill" the following day.

Pence added that he knows "criticism comes with public life", but called Behar out because he "felt it was important that I defend the faith of tens of millions of Americans against that kind of slander". He praised her, stating it showed strength of character to admit when when you've been wrong.

Pence has already accepted an apology from The View co-host, possibly on orders from the network, because, as he said, that's what a good Christian does, but if you give a mouse a cookie...

As of Thursday, Behar had not publicly apologized to Pence on "The View".

Look, but I said to Joy, of course, I forgive you. "We're better than that".
