'Vice President Pence is right'

'Vice President Pence is right'

While claiming he accepted her apology, he then passive aggressively suggested she needed to make it public. In a quip that reportedly drew thousands of angry phone calls, Behar said, "It's one thing to talk to Jesus".

'It's one thing to talk to Jesus.

Her remark prompted thousands of angry Christians to flood ABC and the show's sponsors with angry phone calls.

"The View" showed a segment of Newman telling her fellow competitors that Pence, an evangelical Christian, was scary and "extreme" and that "he thinks Jesus tells him to say things".

Reacting to the comment, Pence criticized ABC when asked about Behar's words, saying he wanted to just laugh about it but could not let it slide.

Not surprisingly, she had no such criticisms for the liberal Oprah Winfrey, who said she would run for president only if God told her to do so.

On an interview on "Hannity" that aired on Monday, Pence told Fox News' Sean Hannity, "I give Joy Behar a lot of credit. I sincerely apologize for what I said", she offered.

White House Fires Trump's Personal Assistant
While everyone in Washington was talking about Rex Tillerson , a long-time aide to Donald Trump was shown the White House door. At a Make America Great Again rally for Rick Saccone, the president vowed that he would 'Keep America Great!' if reelected.

Her co-host Sunny Hostin said she does not appreciate Pence speaking in tongues, even though she is a person of faith, according to Charisma News.

"I'm still encouraging her to us the forum of that program or some other public forum to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended", Pence said, adding that he was trying to defend his faith and the faith of others against "slander".

Behar's original comments came on a February 13 show during a discussion that touched upon Pence's Christianity. "I was raised to respect everyone's religious faith", Behar said. Meanwhile, Behar, a comedian and commentator, should not be allowed to question the legitimacy of hearing Jesus Christ speak to you?

"I just think it demonstrates how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people".

Her comments launched a protest that made it all the way to a shareholder's meeting of ABC parent Walt Disney Corp.

"He's not very popular at all", she said.

Iger told Danhof that Behar had already apologized to Pence, which he believed was "absolutely appropriate". "He understood that Joy wasn't attacking anybody and that there was some miscommunication".
