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?
