Mike Pence Fires Back At “The View” Hosts Over “Mental Illness” Comments

Fired White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman got attention from the liberal media when she made comments about Vice President Mike Pence’s extreme faith, saying that if Pence ever became president, people would be “begging for Trump.”

During Tuesday’s broadcast on “The View” the hosts discussed this topic, and seriously insulted VP Pence.

One of the hosts, Joy Behar started by saying: “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct.”

Behar’s co-host Sherri Shepherd continued: “As a Christian, that’s just par for the course. You talk to Jesus, Jesus talks back. What concerns me is, how long is the conversation with Jesus?”

Sunny Hostin also took shot at Mike Pence by saying that she herself was a faithful Catholic, but she wasn’t sure how se felt about Pence “speaking in tongues.”

However, VP Mike Pence actually heard about their inappropriate comments, and fired back:

“I actually heard that ABC has a program that compared my Christianity to mental illness. And I’d like to laugh about it, but I really can’t.

It’s just wrong. And it’s an insult not to me, but to the vast majority of the American people who, like me, cherish their faith. My Christianity is the most important thing in my life.”

The Vice President also criticized ABC for allowing religious intolerance to be broadcast from a national platform by a longtime employee:

“But I just think it demonstrates just how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people that you could have a major network like ABC permit a forum for invective against religion like that.

And I call them out on it.”

Pence finished by saying that he, as well as other millions of Americans who value their Chrisitan faith, felt personally attacked. “We’re better than that. Our country’s better than that. I’d like to be light about it, but I really can’t,” Pence concluded.

What do you think about this? Do you stand by VP Mike Pence?
