And I'd like to laugh about it, but I really can't.

The vice president said "The View" hosts insulted the "vast majority of the American people who cherish faith".

Pence concluded, "It's just simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance". He added that he believes if Behar and other left-wing figures want to ridicule people of faith that Trump would not only be re-elected in 2020 but that Pence would be elected president in 2024.

He went on to say that Behar's comment illustrates a larger problem of denigration and ignorance of Americans' faith and values in the mainstream media. It's another thing when Jesus talks to you.

The women of ABC News' "The View" took a shot a Vice President Mike Pence's Christian faith on Tuesday, mocking the former governor of IN for talking to Jesus and even calling it a "mental illness".

Well, if hearing the voice God means that a Christian is mentally insane - then add my name to that list.

Vice President Mike Pence's silent protest at the opening ceremony at the Winter Olympics in South Korea was a hot topic on "The View" yesterday.

Fellow host Sherri Shepherd also shared her concerns and said: "As a Christian... you talk to Jesus, Jesus talks to you". "You talk to Jesus, Jesus talks back".

"I thought that Mike Pence said that it was inappropriate to make political statements at sporting events", co-host Sunny Hostin said, harkening back to Pence's attacks on the National Football League players taking a knee.

Meghan McCain interjected, attempting to defend Pence's actions by spelling out North Korea's human rights violations.

"We turned it into a discussion about the criticism of value voters in this country, a criticism of Mike Pence and his faith", said McCain.

"I can honestly tell you my faith sustains me in all that I do, and it's just a regular part of our lives", he said.

Comments like Behar's are the reason evangelicals overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump in the 2016 election, he asserted, as Christians are exhausted of being bullied for their faith in the public square. "I don't think he's that insane". I don't think he would get re-elected. He has no charisma whatsoever. I don't think he would destroy the environment.

Pence responded with class as usual.
