Vice President Mike Pence is pressuring Joy Behar to publicly apologize for her comments about his faith on "The View", after she allegedly apologized to him in private. During a segment on Omarosa Manigault Newman's comments about Pence and his religiosity, made while taping Celebrity Big Brother, Behar joked: "It's one thing to talk to Jesus".

Behar told the millions who tuned into The View on February 13 that Vice President Mike Pence had a "mental illness" for claiming he could speak to Jesus.
"You and I know that criticism comes with public life", Pence explained to Hannity. "It's another thing when Jesus talks to you", Ms. Behar said.
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 February 13 episode of "The View".More news: Time and date for Champions League quarter-final draw
"I just think it demonstrates how out-of-touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people", he said. "Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a unsafe mental illness?"
Iger made the remarks during the shareholder meeting in response to a question from National Center for Public Policy Research general counsel Justin Danhof, who asked what he would say to the "millions of Christians and Trump supporters" the network offended. ABC insiders said executives initially wanted to keep the call between Behar and Pence, but Iger mentioned it while defending his company.
The controversial remarks were made on "The View" by Behar on February 13. He also expressed his wishes during that time that ABC, which is owned by Disney, to be associated with a television program that airs religious intolerance.More news: EU Dismisses Trump's Car Threats, Vows to 'Stand Up to Bullies'
