Tune in Monday night at 9 p.m. ET to watch Vice President Mike Pence's full interview with Sean Hannity.
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.
The full interview airs at 9 p.m. ET on Fox News' “Hannity.”
Joy Behar criticized Vice President Pence's faith by saying that hearing from Jesus is actually called “mental illness.”
Hannity told Pence that his faith also taught him to forgive but added, “I'm not as good at it as you.”
While Pence forgave Behar, he encouraged her to publically apologize.
“I'm still encouraging her, to use the forum of that program or some other public forum, to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended,” Pence said.Read More...
