Bill Maher on Elisabeth Hasselbeck Feud: I Feel Like a Teenage Boy at Penn State!

by at . Comments

Bill Maher talked to David Letterman about his fight with Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View, and needless to say, didn't seem eager to apologize and put this to bed.

On the contrary, the outspoken late night comedian seemed more amused than anything that Hasselbeck ambushed him about a joke he once made about her.

"You kind of walked into a deal there, huh?" Letterman said. Maher's response? Diss her and make a reference to former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, obviously ...

"I was abused. I felt like a teenage boy at Penn State," quipped Maher, never one to pass on an un-PC zinger. "It's funny, I am never in the role of the victim... It was like, thank you, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, for making me look good!

"She had some bug up her ass," he added, but then softened his tone. "Look, I'm only kidding. I like her a lot. We have this relationship on TV where we hate each other."

Watch the aforementioned exchange on The View after the jump:


I don't consider her shrill. To me she is just a younger version of Sara Palin. Stupid and uninformed.


I am generally a fan of Bill Maher & his show (I thought his movie Religulous was fantastic & very timely). I am usually not a fan of Elisabeth Hasselbeck-I think she's shrill, and I pretty much never like conservatives.(just my opinion) HOWEVER, in this case, Bill Maher took it too far. Rape (Lara Logan) & child molestation (Penn State scandal) are NEVER funny topics to joke about--and considering that Logan's horrific assault was recent and we are only in the beginning stages of the Penn State scandal, Maher is just rubbing salt into these wounds-NOT making anyone laugh.


I never have found Maher to be funny...he has a mean streak that idiots seem to laugh at, but it is akin to bullying...not funny, just mean. In this day and age, I am surprised so many people tolerate his kind of bullying...but then maybe I shouldn't be at all surprised...seems to be ok if a celebrity does it. Idiots.
