During Tuesday’s episode of “The View,” co-host Joy Behar couldn’t help but mock Vice President Mike Pence for the recent claim by Omarosa Manigault that he hears the voice of Jesus Christ speaking to him.
Behar was paraphrasing the old joke, “if you talk to God it’s prayer. But if God talks to you it’s schizophrenia.” But the joke fell flat with Fox News and right-wing commentator Tomi Lahren.
During an interview with “Fox & Friends,” Lahren tried to spin the joke into Behar attacking the Christian faith of the vice president.
“Who is she to judge how often our vice president should speak to his lord and savior?” Lahren said, ignoring the fact that Jesus is “talking back.” She went on to argue that it’s part of the left’s war against Christianity. She went on to call the women “catty.”
“If you want Joy Behar to be quiet just say that maybe someone is speaking to Allah and Allah talks back. She would not be mocking that,” said co-host Brian Kilmeade.
“Again, they live in a world where women can be men and men can be women. But if you’re a conservative Christian, you have a mental illness,” Lahren said, attacking transgender Americans and again ignoring the allegation Pence hears voices.
“Obviously she doesn’t know Christ,” Ainsley Earhardt said of the Catholic comedian. The comment was ironic given the panel just denounced Behar for attacking someone else’s faith.
“Well, she’s Jewish, isn’t she?” Kilmeade asked.
“Meghan McCain said that Jesus speaks to her every morning,” co-host Steve Doocy said.
“Joy Behar, not Jewish,” Kilmeade cut in to clarify after the producers explained to him that the daughter of Italian immigrants is not Jewish.
Lahren went on to tout “Blue Lives Matter” and honoring law enforcement. The comments come weeks after Lahren attacked the FBI.
