Vice President Mike Pence told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Monday that ABC News star Joy Behar called him to apologize for mocking his Christian faith -- and he urged her to apologize to “tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended” during the conversation.
Pence spoke on a range of topics including Behar’s recent comments -- which have led the Media Research Center to launch a campaign to hold Behar accountable for spewing “anti-Christian bigotry” after she said that communicating with Jesus is a “mental illness” during a Feb. 13 episode of “The View.”
“I give Joy Behar a lot of credit. She picked up the phone. She called me. She was very sincere, and she apologized and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you've been forgiven,” Pence told Hannity.
Hannity told Pence that his faith also taught him to forgive but added, “I'm not as good at it as you.”
