Joy Behar, The View’s consummate red-headed step-child, finally decided — after 30,000 phone calls from angry viewers — that she should probably offer a mea culpa for insulting Vice President Mike Pence (and all Christians by extension).
So, likely after pressure from ABC execs, she relented.
That’s when she called Pence personally and offered an apology.
But Pence wouldn’t let it slide. He then asked that she extend the apology publicly to all Christians.
We’re surprised to report that she has refused that request.
Typical liberalism will only allow for a private admission of guilt.
Here’s more from Fox News…
“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?” shareholder Justin Danhof asked Iger directly at Thursday’s meeting. “Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a dangerous mental illness?”
Iger responded by saying, “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.”
Iger told the crowd he was “glad to hear” Behar apologized because he “takes exception” to what she said.
“I don’t think it was right,” Iger said.
A White House source was critical of a statement that Behar’s manager, Bill Stankey, provided to the Washington Post that claimed Pence “understood that Joy wasn’t attacking anybody and that there was some miscommunication.”
“Joy in no way suggested her comment was ‘a miscommunication,’” the source told Fox News, saying Stankey “lied.”
