'Joy Behar, Not Jewish': Deranged Fox News Segment Becomes an Amazing Trainwreck

During Tuesday’s episode of “The View,” co-host Joy Behar couldn’t help but mock Vice President Mike Pence for Omarosa Manigault's recent claim that Pence 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 was reportedly “talking back” to Pence. She argued that Behar's comments were 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, again ignoring the allegation that Pence hears voices.

“Obviously, she doesn’t know Christ,” Ainsley Earhardt said of Behar. The comment was ironic given the panel had 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 added.

“Joy Behar, not Jewish,” Kilmeade cut in to clarify after the producers explained to him that Behar, a daughter of Italian immigrants, is not Jewish.
