Joy Behar, a co-host of ABC’s “The View,” apologized Tuesday for mocking Vice President Mike Pence’s religious faith last month and suggesting his religious views made him mentally ill.
“I think Vice President Pence is right. I was raised to respect everyone’s religious faith, and I fell short of that,” Behar said. “I sincerely apologize for what I said.”
Her apology came after weeks of protests by viewers who were outraged by Behar’s remarks. Behar’s manager, Bill Stankey, confirmed to The Washington Post that Behar had apologized to Pence during a phone conversation.
