“Fox & Friends” co-hosts on Wednesday took to bashing the religious beliefs of “The View” co-host Joy Behar, an Italian-American who was raised Roman Catholic.
“As a Christian, obviously she doesn’t know Christ,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt said of Behar after the comedian called out Vice President Mike Pence’s religiosity. “She doesn’t know the joy and the love that he provides for so many people.”
“She’s Jewish, isn’t she?” fellow co-host Brian Kilmeade asked.
The Fox News hosts took the oddly personal turn after Tuesday’s episode of “The View,” when Behar responded to former White House aide Omarosa Manigault’s claim on “Celebrity Big Brother” that Pence “thinks Jesus tells him to say things.”
Behar ripped into the vice president over Manigault’s assertion: “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you,” she said. “Can he talk to Mary Magdalene without his wife in the room?”
“Fox & Friends” contributor Tomi Lahren also blasted Behar on “Fox & Friends.” “Who is she to judge how often our vice president should speak to his Lord and savior?” Lahren thundered. “Who is she to mock anyone for their faith?”
Lahren, who hasn’t been getting much air time on Fox since she called Rep. Joe Kennedy a “little limp d—“ in an Instagram story, continued, “These people are really, really amazing to me because they preach day in and day about tolerance and love. Tolerance and love for everyone except conservative Christians and then they can mock you and it’s funny. It’s really disgusting.”
A spokesperson for Behar at “The View” declined to comment.
