During the meeting, Disney CEO Bob Iger faced questions. One came from Justin Danhof, who is general counsel for the National Center for Public Policy Research.
In audio of the event shared by the conservative organization on YouTube, Danhof slammed ESPN saying it “has seemingly become a 24/7 anti-Trump tirade channel.”
He called out sports journalist Jemele Hill for branding President Donald Trump “a white supremacist.”
But The View’s Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin especially angered him. Danhof accused the women of likening Christianity to a “mental illness.”

He said: “Co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin suggested that Christianity is… and I’m quoting them, ‘dangerous’ and that… ‘Christians suffer from mental illness.’
“In response, the show’s advertisers have come under tremendous pressure to severe ties with these anti-Christian bigots.”
Danhof accused Disney of being “willing to take a reputational and a financial hit just so long as it’s in service to bashing conservatives and religious Americans.”
