Elisabeth Hasselbeck Takes Sick Day From 'The View' After Argument With Bill Maher

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 16th 2011 1:00PM
The day after getting into an awkward argument with Bill Maher that made headlines around the Web, Elisabeth Hasselbeck was noticeably absent from 'The View.'

As it turns out, the whole ordeal may have left Hasselbeck with a big headache. On her Twitter account, she attributed the absence to a "major migraine."

A representative for 'The View' confirmed that Hasselbeck went home sick, telling AOL TV, "Elisabeth was here this morning in studio and was scheduled to be on the live show, she went home because she wasn't feeling well."

On Tuesday's show, Hasselbeck got into an extended confrontation with the comedian about a joke he made in February involving her and CBS correspondent Lara Logan. Despite the fact that Maher made the joke before it was publicly known that Logan had been sexually assaulted in Tahrir Square, Hasselbeck asked him if he would "say that again, if you're so supportive of women?" Later in the interview, she sarcastically said to Maher, "You're so brilliant, wow, I actually feel smarter sitting next to you." Tuesday night on 'Letterman,' Maher continued to joke about the uncomfortable interview.

If I was Elizabeth Hasselback I would be sick too! After seeing many of Bill Maher's shows I really hated the guy! He is funny but when it comes to politics he is a TOTAL idiot! He is also a jerk, pure and simple and I am glad that he was challenged by Elizabeth! The only good thing about him is that he is not as bad as his progressive buddies!

Humor. It is a difficult concept. For one side of the fence, that is. :)

Well, if you consider factual inaccuracies to be "dead on," then yes, you're right. Anyone with a brain, however, realizes she's a twit.

Oops, forgot to ask: what does "arogrant" mean?

Thanks.

I just don't understand why she is even on any show spewing her opinion. It is not her politics that bothers me but they are never her thoughts, she mimics all those conservative airheads, they aren't even hers. Her problem with Bill Maher should have been dealth with behind the stage. Her staging that she might even be close to Bill Maher intellectually, just made me laugh. Not a classy person.
