Elisabeth Hasselbeck on David Hernandez Elimination: An American Idol Conspiracy

by at . Comments

Let's at least give Elisabeth Hasselbeck some credit: unlike former coworker, Rosie O'Donnell, this host of The View didn't refer to 9/11 as a conspiracy.

But the conservative blonde is singing a conspiratorial tuner over David Hernandez being voted off American Idol last night.

"My mind went, 'You know what? This is a conspiracy," said Hasselbeck during this morning's show.

"American Idol maybe didn't want to deal with the fact that he had this shady - so-called - past and they blocked all of his phone calls of people voting for him.'"

Whoopi Goldberg was taken aback at this accusation, reiterating Hasselbeck's stance in amazement: "They blocked his phone calls?!?"

Sounds like a controversial, attention-getting viewpoint to me, Elisabeth basically responded. We wonder if she also thinks Eliot Spitzer got a raw deal.

"I'm making up my own conspiracy theory. This is my paranoia," she said.

"Because he's good - he is good - despite his... whatever he was doing on the side. But I think he actually deserved the spot to be there and I feel like maybe they were just trying to get him off the show."

What do you think? Did American Idol conspire to give David Hernandez the boot?

No. I do not think it was a conspiracy. He did bad on Tuesday night. At least four of the contestants did bad. I thought that the blonde Kristy Cook should have went home. But, definitely not a conspiracy. His song sucked!

He is creepy and not natural. So try-hard. Elizabeth does not know talent. She gets sucked into the hype.

So, it doesn't occur to anyone that perhaps this is actually public backlash at Hernandez's gay stripper past? 'Cause the guy deserves to be in the top 10 due to his immense talent.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
