Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Joy Behar Rumble on The View

by at . Comments

The presidential election is under two weeks away and tension is rising around the country. The set of The View may be the epicenter of political squabbling.

As usual, the show's resident hot conservative pundit, Elisabeth Hasselbeck clashed with Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar over Barack Obama and taxes. But apparently, that was nothing compared to a confrontation taking place after the broadcast.

Hasselbeck was reportedly pissed that Behar has been using The View to tout Behar's upcoming stand-up performance, which she called "political in nature." Elisabeth, sporting a tight little John McCain t-shirt, demanded equal time.

Joy got in Elisabeth's face, screaming "If you do that again I will burn you down." (!?) Elisabeth turned beet red and started to stammer out something. At that point, Joy turned around and yelled, "Shut the f*%k up!" and stormed off.

Just another week at the office.

Below is one of the exchanges (follow this link for more classic, past and present, inflammatory Elisabeth Hasselbeck videos) that sparked it...


Joy Behar I use to love the view but you make It so hard to even turn my TV on. I dont care where you go but just GO!
you are showing how unhappy you are . they say the older the wiser but you Joy are showing the older the more bitter one get's. NOT A GOOD EXAMPLE for anyone watching the view! I used to love the show now I wish they would pull it , if you stay on! and this has nothing to do with Elisabeth. it the show is fine until you open your mouth and thats all it takes for me to grab the remote and do something more worth while with my day. whoopi you do a great job but you have become more of a mediator due to Joy being on the show. but i give you a two thumbs up! BARBARA IT's your creation where are you ??????


Joy Behar is indeed ridiculous. The name of the show is "The View" and as long as your view suits Joy...that's fine. If you don't see it her way...your "view" doesn't mean a thing. She is an idiot, rude, and extremely hateful. Never will I watch the show again. I thought Barbara Waters was above what she has actually proven to be! I'm disappointed in Barbara after admiring her for years.


Josie Says: Don't you feel well? You seem a bit confused as to where to place your hostility. Get well soon.


Joy Behar is ridiculous. Being a comedian may be her job, but in her private life she must be miserable to have such a nasty, rude, attitude toward people she disagrees with. She has no patience unless you espouse her views. Barbara lost respect a long time ago for having people like Behar on her show. The odds are stacked against Elizabeth. The othere lean so far left they almost fall over. All but Joy can for the most part be civil. I tune in once in a while, but it never takes long before I tune out. Who cares what their opinions are. Who are they?


Joy Behar is not a smart women or interesting. She is angry and bitter, over who knows what, and frankly no one cares now or ever. Her bias is unbelievable to be on network programming. I stopped watching this show after the 1st 6 months, Barbara Walters had to come on to give it some kind of credibility and now her standards have dipped to an all time low. I don't care what any of these womens politics are, why would they think that we would?


I agree, The View has become a circus !! I do not watch this show anymore ... if I wanted to be informed I would watch Meet The Press. I choose to watch The Today Show with Cathy Lee for intertainment.


You have to be crazy if you believe that Elisabeth is Smart. It is so frustrating to sit and watch someone who misquotes and is really ignorant when it comes to politics. If I hear her say one more time how qualify Sarah is and how Barack isn't. Well this time lets vote for a smart one. It is hard to show someone respect when she has no clue what she is talking about. Sarah is being investigated tomorrow.


I'm an independent who just cast my early vote for Obama. I've watched The View for several years. I think Elisabeth is intelligent and somtimes too passionate about her views. I think Joy has become about as bad as Rosie. Both disgusting. Elisabeth might be young but she does have something Joy really lacks and that is Class!


Elizabeth is a bleached blond like Cindy Mccain. The bleach seems to hae reached their brains. Elizabeth just want to be invited to all thoes White House dinners. She wants to feel smart and listened to by someone other than her narrow-minded friends.


Joy Behar should have left the show with Rosie O'Donnell. J.Behar is a BIG Mouth with nothing to say. Her & Rosie make a great couple. Go!Elizabeth Hasselback. Even Barbara Walters is not what she used to be!

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Quotes

Right now, with two kids, one 3 and one 5 months, a little walk for ice cream with the kids is perfectly romantic. When they are falling asleep in the stroller and [we can] just take in the city together.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck [on the spark in her marriage]

Body image has nothing to do with scale numbers, it's how you feel inside. This is the first time I've felt free from that, because I am working out in a way where I feel so strong that there's no room for those doubts.
