The View's Behar, Hostin Mock VP Pence's Faith as ‘Dangerous’ and ‘Mental Illness’

"Can he talk to Mary Magdalene without his wife in the room?”

On Tuesday's episode of The View, the left-wing cacklers embraced fired White House employee Omarosa Manigault, in response to the former Celebrity Apprentice star's return to reality television with gossip about President Trump's administration. Among the condescension featured on CBS's Celebrity Big Brother: Vice President Mike Pence's "scary" Christianity.

A clip from Celebrity Big Brother revealed Omarosa calling Pence an "extreme Christian" who talks to Jesus. The crew then attacked Pence, with left-wing attorney Sunny Hostin -- a professed Catholic -- calling Pence's faith "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 this a dangerous situation. Look I'm Catholic. 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."

Perhaps she doesn't want politicians speaking in tongues because those in her religion do not. Isn't that religious bigotry?

Joy Behar ridiculed Pence, calling his Christianity crazy:

“Like I said before, it's one thing to talk to Jesus. It's another thing when Jesus talks to you."

Hostin and the audience agreed. "Exactly. That's different!" the leftwinger-in-denial exclaimed. Behar continued:

“That's called mental illness, if I'm not correct. Hearing voices.”

Guest panelist and avowed Christian Sherri Shepherd perplexingly joined the pile-on:

"What concerns me is how long is the conversation with Jesus...anything that’s too much is concerning."

"Can he talk to Mary Magdalene without his wife in the room?” Behar squawked. Hostin again referenced "veneer," as if Pence's presentation of political issues as moral ones is somehow dishonest. "Do we want our politics served to us with a religious veneer over it?" she asked.

During the discussion, things got tense between token conservative Meghan McCain and Hostin. McCain referred to Hostin as a liberal, which Hostin ridiculously denied.

Sunny Hostin should be ashamed for calling into question Vice President Pence's sincerity. Furthermore, for the co-hosts of The View to label anyone else mentally ill is ludicrous -- the show is regularly filled with some of the worst bias and hypocrisy on the air, and their reputation for wacko statements is well established.
