Elisabeth Hasselbeck

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving The View to take over one of the host position on Fox and Friends vacated by Gretchen Carlson, who is moving on to her own Fox program in September. Remember back in March, news reports were that Ms. Hasselbeck’s contract was not E Hasselbeck_View Ladiesgoing to be renewed and Barbara Walters said that was not true? Well either Ms. Walters did not tell the truth or maybe Ms. Hasselbeck did not want to renew her contract and was not ready for the news be public back then.

I started wondering if Elisabeth was not going anywhere, why was she absent from the show as much as Joy Behar. Ms. Behar had officially announced her departure to be at the end of the season. Those two were absent once or twice every week since April. Elisabeth Hasselbeck was the only person on The View panel who identified as conservative.  I wander among the 2 replacements, will one of them be a conservative thinker!`

I am seeing a lot of happy reaction to Ms. Hasselbeck leaving The View and joining Fox News on various online news and social websites coming from politically conservative folks. These same folks are also making nasty comments about her View co-hosts. Oh, the nasty name calling! I guess the thinking is that the conservative Ms. Hasselbeck has nothing to do with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd and Ms. Walters outside of The View.

I know there are some extreme thinkers of political ideologies that cannot deal with those of differing political views. Ms. Hasselbeck does not fall into that category. She is particularly close to super Obama supporting Sherri Shepherd. People of differing political views can be loving friends. Watch Elisabeth Hasselbeck speak of her View buddies.

The Hasselbeck/Maher Confrontation

Bill Maher was on the View yesterday and Elisabeth Hasselbeck confronted him about him making women  in general (in the citation, it was Ms. Hasselbeck)  the butt of nasty jokes. His jokes and comments are quite vulgar in reference to Republican and conservative women. In his monologues on his HBO program, “Real Time with Bill Maher,” he called Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann vulgar names associated with female genitalia. Read more and view a video clip here.

Since Bill Maher was on a morning broadcast network TV program, he could not be his usual self. If he had the freedom he has on HBO, ABC would have had to cut the sound to keep viewers from hearing the foul language that would have flowed from his mouth. Real Time did its last show this past Friday before going on holiday hiatus. That is a good thing for Ms. Hasselbeck confronting Bill Maher, because if Real Time were on again this Friday, he would cut loose on her with the vulgarities something awful! Her husband would have to do something painful to him to her uphold her honor.
