Updating a story CBN News continues to follow, the press secretary of Vice President Mike Pence has confirmed that Joy Behar of ABC News' "The View" personally apologized to Pence for comments she made against his Christian faith.

The spat dates back to last month, when Behar and her co-hosts were discussing comments that former West Wing staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman had made on "Celebrity Big Brother". "That's called mental illness, if I'm not correct, hearing voices", Behar said.

She later said she was joking, but Pence said the remarks were "wrong" and it was later revealed by Disney CEO Bob Iger that she telephoned Pence to express contrition for her comments.

Fox News reports that Pence accepted Behar's phone-in apology.

Co-host Sunny Hostin said, "I don't know that I want my vice president, um - speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him". "She picked up the phone; she called me; she was very honest, and she apologized". "She called me. She was very honest, and she apologized".

But Pence said he also encouraged Behar to publicly "apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended".

OR actually passed a similar state legislation protecting net neutrality earlier in 2018. We are also very proud that OR is about to get a similar (albeit narrower) law.

While Behar called to apologize to Pence, he decided it wasn't enough.

Behar garnered outrage from many for her comments on an episode of "The View" that aired February 13 in which she and her co-hosts discussed former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman's criticisms of Pence on the reality TV show "Celebrity Big Brother". I was raised to respect everyone's religious faith. "I sincerely apologize for what I said", she said on Tuesday's episode of "The View".

The vice president is not the only one wanting Behar to make a public apology.

Ms. Hostin, who identifies as Catholic, called Pence's Christianity "dangerous": "When you have a Mike Pence who now puts this religious veneer on things and who calls people values voters, I think we're in a unsafe situation. Call Clorox, their advertiser, at 1-888-317-2837 and ask them to weigh in".

Behar also apologized today on The View.

Among the first to accept her apology: North Carolina-based evangelist Franklin Graham, who had called in a Tuesday Facebook post for her to publicly apologize. "I would like to apologize to him and his family in particular". ABC insiders said executives initially wanted to keep the call between Behar and Pence, but Iger mentioned it while defending his company.
