Liberal comedian and co-host of ABC’s ‘The View’ reportedly apologized to Vice President Mike Pence after she publicly mocked his religious beliefs; claiming the national leader suffered from a “mental illness” because he believes in the power of prayer.
Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed Behar’s apology during a shareholder meeting Thursday, telling investors she apologized shortly after her outrageous comments.
“What do you say to the tens of millions of Christians, and President Trump supporters, that your networks have so blatantly offended and ascribed hateful labels?” asked Justin Danhof, a shareholder and general counsel for the National Center for Public Policy Research.
“Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a dangerous mental illness?” he pressed.
“I don’t know where I start. First of all, Joy Behar apologized to Vice President Pence directly. She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate,” said Iger.
“I don’t think it was right,” he said, distancing himself from Behar’s vicious smear.
The left-wing comedian made national headlines last month when she equated the Vice President’s religious faith and belief in prayer with a “mental illness,” baselessly claiming Pence was “hearing voices.”
