Joy Behar, who mocked Vice President's Mike Pence's Christian faith and then resisted apologizing, has now done so. "She called me. She was very honest, and she apologized, and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you've been forgiven", Pence said.
Behar said hearing voices is a "mental illness" before Sherri Shepard offered a limited defense of Pence.
The offending remark was made on February 13 during a discussion of the Big Brother episode in which Omarosa Manigault spoke about Pence's religiosity. I was raised to respect everyone's religious faith.
Pence criticized the comments on C-SPAN, and Disney CEO Bob Iger also vocalized his objections.
Pence appeared on Fox News Channel's "Hannity" Monday evening, urging Behar to apologize to "tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended" during the conversation - and she obliged.
"My question is, can he talk to Mary Magdalene without his wife in the room?" she said. "If she doesn't want to work here let her a- go", Behar reportedly said before adding, "If I hear her say "my father" one more time on this show, I'm going to puke on live TV".
Behar last month made the remark about Pence in response to a clip where Omarosa Manigault-Newman, a former White House aide, said Pence "thinks Jesus tells him to say things".

Packers trade cornerback Damarious Randall to Browns for quarterback DeShone Kizer
Clearly, the Packers weren't satisfied with the way Hundley performed last season after Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone. In addition to the players involved in the deal, ESPN's Adam Schefter says the teams swapped 4th and 5th-round picks.
On "The View" on Tuesday, Behar said, "I think Vice President Pence is right".
Sure enough, on Tuesday morning Behar complied.
"It's just simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance". "He encouraged her to make the same apology publicly on the show that she did privately to him".
Behar's comment also sparked backlash from the conservative Media Research Center, which launched a campaign that sparked 40,000 protest calls to ABC.
"When they do that, this whole matter will be put to rest". She called me. She was very honest, and she apologized.
The host's remarks were called "slander" and "anti-Christian bigotry".
McCain was immediately interrupted and told her impression was "not actually true" by The View host Whoopi Goldberg.
