VP Pence Hits Joy Behar and Mainstream Media For ‘Demeaning Terms’ About Faith: ‘I Just Couldn’t Stay Silent’
Vice President Mike Pence spoke out against Joy Behar yet again in an interview with Fox & Friends that aired Monday morning — after the View host mocked him for his religious beliefs.
Like far too many stories in 2018, this one starts with Omarosa: the former White House aide dished about Pence’s beliefs on Celebrity Big Brother, claiming the VP “thinks Jesus tells him to say things.”
In response, ladies of the View — save Meghan McCain — mocked Pence, with Behar even joking that believing God commands you to speak is a sign of “mental illness.”
Pence next pushed back on Behar in an interview with Axios, calling the comments “just wrong.”
And in his Monday appearance on Fox & Friends, filmed at the Southern Border, Pence explained how he simply could not stay silent while the ladies of The View tarnished his faith.
“When I heard that ABC had a program that likened my Christianity to mental illness, I just couldn’t be silent. My Christian faith is probably the most important thing in my life,” Pence said. “To have ABC have a forum that spoke in such demeaning terms, I think it’s evidence of how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people.”
