Since January's Golden Globes, the Left has gushed over the idea of "President" Oprah. Perhaps coincidentally, there is no criticism from ABC's The View regarding the media icon's recent reference to her relationship with God, despite the gabfest having lampooned Mike Pence earlier this week for his faith.
On Tuesday's episode of The View, Joy Behar cackled her way through a scathing disparagement of Vice President Pence's Christianity, bolstered by co-host Sunny Hostin's -- and guest host Sherri Shepherd's -- squawking agreement. Behar mocked:
"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. Hearing voices...Can he talk to Mary Magdalene without his wife in the room?”
Hostin chimed in:
"I'm a faithful person, but I don’t know that I want my vice president, um -- speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him."
Even professed Christian Shepherd joined in:
"What concerns me is how long is the conversation with Jesus...anything that’s too much is concerning."
The Left has been bursting at the seams over a potential presidential run by Oprah; Behar in particular liked the idea of President Winfrey (or a Commander-in-Chief Tom Hanks) in a broadcast of the cluckfest from 2016. Given those facts, where was Behar and crew's anti-religious excoriation of Oprah, who told 60 Minutes Overtime Sunday why she was, as of yet, unconvinced to run for president?
“If God actually wanted me to run, wouldn't God kinda tell me? And I haven't heard that."
Where is Behar and the gang's mockery of Oprah's faith? Perhaps they're putting any potential insults on hold -- as the media did with Donald Trump -- unless and until Oprah becomes a Republican.
