Don’t you just love it when two famous people yell at each other from their respective national television shows but not face to face? Indirect non-confrontational confrontation is fun!
In this case, it’s Bill Maher vs The View‘s Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Turns out, Maher made a joke on his show Real Time about how he’d like to swap Hasselbeck with CBS correspondent Lara Logan, who was detained but then released by bad men in Egypt. Why?
Well, because Maher is super liberal and Hasselbeck isn’t and so this is funny-ish. The joke would’ve worked better, though, if Logan was still detained.
In the end, it comes down to Maher telling a crappy joke (not because of the political undertones, but because it’s just not good) and Hasselbeck’s moronic defense. Can you feel the sexual tension, folks? Here we go!
