    Default Elisabeth Hasselbeck Vs Bill Maher over Lara Logan Joke

    “The View” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck confronted Bill Maher over a joke she thought was in poor taste, and Maher later addressed the controversy on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”



    Maher said on the Feb. 4 episode of his HBO program “Real Time” that “New rule: now that [then Egyptian ruler] Hosni Mubarak has released [CBS correspondent] Lara Logan: he must put her intrepid hotness on a plane immediately. In exchange, we will send Elisabeth Hasselbeck.”

    Logan and some of her crew were detained by Egyptian police on Feb. 3. CBS announced on Feb. 15 that Logan had been sexually assaulted by a mob in Egypt on Feb. 11.

    Hasselbeck said that on behalf of all women she was offended by Maher’s joke. It seemed pretty clear, though, that the joke personally bugged her. “You can talk about me or you can talk to me,” she told Maher. She added that she tries to teach her kids accountability.

    Hasselbeck also talked about details of the assault on Logan that hadn’t yet taken place when Maher cracked his joke on Feb. 4.

    What was interesting about the faceoff was the body language. Hasselbeck got close to Maher as she confronted him, patting his shoulder and putting an arm behind him. Maher, who makes a living pushing buttons, seemed somewhat chastened, and even said he might not have told the joke if he had known it would cause him so much grief on the show.

    On Letterman, Maher said that he actually likes Hasselbeck.

    “We have this relationship on TV where we play like we hate each other,” Maher said. He then joked about the married Hasselbeck: “It makes the sex hotter.”

    Of course, Maher didn’t crack a joke like that to Hasselbeck’s face when he had a chance on “The View.”

    I'm a conservative, and I actually really like Bill Maher.

    He's a lefty liberal, but he has an open mind, will listen to the other side of an issue, and if the argument is compelling, he will change his mind.

    Sure, some of the stuff he says is bat shit crazy, but he is a comedian too, he needs to stir the pot some.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I used to dislike the Carlin's, Maher and Jon Stewart's. But that's changed overtime. Lizzy is just mad that Maher is a lot better comedian than her husband was a QB.

    If hes so smart and has all the answers why doesnt he run for office? Hes a blow hard who makes millions just like Jon Stewart,Rush,Hannity, and so many others out there who prey on politics for their own financial gain. The new wave of entertainers. LOL.

    Yeah, because Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a real imposing figure.

    Even the rest of her pals there were not really siding with her.

    Because he doesn't have all the answers and will readily admit it. Whether you agree or disagree with his politics, one thing that is evident if you watch his show objectively is that he certainly is far brighter than not only many other comedians, but many other talk show hosts as well. As was mentioned by another poster, he may lean a little bit to the left (I think he's more a moderate independent than anything) but he's open minded and also agrees with many more conservative ideas than you might think. Plus, one needs to keep in mind that he is a comedian first and foremost and some of what he espouses should taken within that context and not necessarily too seriously.

    I watch the view regularly. Elizabeth is my least favorite part...I don't care about her politics but she has an almost
    Palinesque lack of sense of humor about herself.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.
