Elisabeth Hasselbeck calls Kathy Griffin 'scum'

Posted on

This morning on The View, Elisabeth Hasselbeck called Kathy Griffin “scum” for joking on her Bravo show My Life On The D-List last week that Sen. Scott Brown “has two daughters that are prostitutes.” “You defend your daughters against scum who come after them,” said Hasselbeck. Whoopi Goldberg followed that up by saying that “if somebody talked about my daughter as a joke like that, I would beat their ass.”

“Are you calling Kathy ‘scum’ now?” Joy Behar asked Hasselbeck.

“In general, if someone called your daughter a prostitute would you think they’d be scum?” countered Hasselbeck. “I’d call them [sic] scum.”

“I know my daughter’s not a prostitute, so it [would be] funny,” said Behar. “It’s just a joke, Elisabeth.”

Hasselbeck commanded Griffin to “get in line, and cut it out.”

I don’t think Griffin’s joke was funny, but then, I don’t think Griffin is funny in general. I’d say that Griffin may want to avoid visiting The View in the near future, but it’s unlikely she’ll be invited back for a while anyway, after this.

What do you think?
