Elisabeth Hasselbeck threatened to quit “The View” after Barbara Walters humiliated her on the air

Elisabeth Hasselbeck was fired from “The View” in 2013 and I think it was about nine years too late. It’s one thing to have conservative views but another to be obnoxious about it. She’s resurfaced in recent weeks to promote a book and her reaction – make that overreaction – to Rosie O’Donnell having a had a crush on her shows that she is as self-righteous as ever. I try not to get too negative here on the blog but frankly, I can’t stand her.

Anyway, in the new book “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View,’” Variety‘s Ramin Setoodeh details a day in 2006 when Hasselbeck was having an argument with Barbara Walters and Joy Behar on TV about a proposal from the FDA to allow the morning-after pill for over-the-counter consumption.

Hasselbeck, who argued taking the pill is “the same thing as birthing a baby and leaving it out in the street,” wouldn’t let the other co-hosts provide their opposing points of view. Finally, Walters had to interrupt her. “Could you stop now?” Walters said. “We have to go on and we have to learn how to discuss these things in some sort of rational way.”

Below is audio of Hasselbeck quitting the show after – for about a minute – and the second video is Kathy Griffin goofing on the whole thing.

3 Remarks

  1. She is such an entitled and out of touch twat if I may be so bold. She is so incredibly ignorant. I say that not because I disagree with her on most every thing; but, because she’s just so informed and yet she speaks with such bravado and confidence. It’s laughable.

    Like many of her ilk, she sees these pills as something they are not. She sees clumps of cells as humans that must be protected and nurtured while turning the other way when they’re developed and birthed. At that point it seems to be their own fault they need assistance.

  2. Thanks for the posting. Wow, what a five-alarm bloody c**t!

    I have said this before and I will say this again and again and again and again. Why do these people care so much about fetuses (or in this case, not even that), yet they don’t care whatsoever about actual, living children? They do everything possible to make children’s lives a living hell, stripping money for education, healthcare, welfare. Anti-abortion believers don’t actually care about children; they just want to make sure women are punished for committing the most despicable sin imaginable: having sex with a man.

    And yes, Greg, I agree that she’s obnoxious and just repugnant. How competing on a reality show made her feel so entitled is beyond me, but the world is much better when she’s not in the public eye.
