Joy Behar has apologized to Christians for a joke she made about Vice President Mike Pence in February after Pence urged her to say she was sorry. "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", Pence told Hannity... 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".
Prior to Behar's personal call to Pence, the vice president issued a statement during the C-Span that took place a day after the tirade was aired about his opinion, saying that comparing Christianity to mental illness is simply wrong. Behar made a joke implying that Pence was mentally ill for saying he communicated with Jesus. ABC insiders said executives initially wanted to keep the call between Behar and Pence, but Iger mentioned it while defending his company.
Behar said Tuesday she'd been raised to respect all faiths and that she fell short of that last month. "She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate".
On "The View" on Tuesday, Behar said, "I think Vice President Pence is right". Iger revealed in his response to that question that Behar had personally apologized to Pence. I don't mean to offend people but apparently I keep doing it. "I'd like to be light about it, but I really can't - not for my sake, but for the tens of millions of Americans who cherish their faith, I just, I can't be silent".

He addressed the regular meeting of Cabinet ahead of his spring statement to the House of Commons. The economy has seen higher employment and lower unemployment, adding 3 million jobs, he said.
"I give Joy Behar a lot of credit".
MRC President Brent Bozell issued a statement declaring that Behar's private apology was "not almost enough" and promised to continue his campaign against "anti-Christian bigotry" at the network. While claiming he accepted her apology, he then passive aggressively suggested she needed to make it public.
"So does mine, but I'm not as good at it as you", Hannity remarked.
