Elisabeth Hasselbeck vs. Bill Maher: Fight! Fight! Fight!

by at . Comments

There was a pretty intense showdown on The View yesterday.

Bill Maher appeared on the program, months after making a crack that the U.S. should have sent Elisabeth Hasselbeck to Egypt in exchange for Lara Logan after that CBS journalist was attacked there in February.

Soon after taking a seat on the couch, and making a statement in defense of women with regard to the Jerry Sandusky mess at Penn State, the comedian was asked by the host about this joke. He explained that he lived "on the edge" and it wasn't personal and his audience is HBO... but Hasselbeck was NOT letting Maher off the hook.

"I actually feel smarter sitting next to you," she said at one point, to which Maher replied: “Really? I feel like I’m in high school sitting next to you.”
