Just Another Meltdown on ‘The View’ Between O’Reilly, Hasselbeck and Behar

with one comment

Bill O’Reilly spent time on the sofa at “The View” today, providing some much needed entertainment.

Highlights of their verbal sparring include:

* O’Reilly called Sen. Barack Obama a “communist,” but later amend his comment to describing him as a “socialist.”
* O’Reilly told Joy Behar, “Your name is Joy, you should be joyful.”
* Behar told O’Reilly that “I don’t hate you. I dislike you.”
* O’Reilly said that Keith Olbermann and other critics are “jealous.”
* Behar told O’Reilly, “I don’t believe anything you say.”
* O’Reilly called Behar a “Kool Aid drinker,” and Behar responded, “You drank the Kool Aid on George Bush for eight years, Bill.”
* Behar, referring to a picture of O’Reilly as a kid, “That’s what the devil will look like when he comes.”

I would not expect that Behar is getting an invitation to O’Reilly’s show anytime soon.

Here’s the first segment:

Here is part of the transcript of today’s quarrel on “The View.”

BARBARA WALTERS: Elisabeth, Elisabeth. Do you ever, ever doubt anything about the Republicans? Do you ever doubt, well, you’re saying-

ELISABETH HASSELBECK: Sure, I’ve sat here and I talked about Rush Limbaugh.

JOY BEHAR: He’s not a Republican.

HASSELBECK: I actually, when Barack Obama gave his speech and I said this, when I have said I-

BEHAR: He’s a terrorist. Rush Limbaugh is a terrorist. You heard it here ladies and gentlemen.

[applause]

HASSELBECK: Make your news headline. The-

WALTERS: I mean people running, people. Can I get into-

HASSELBECK:
When I came here, Barack Obama actually could have potentially had my vote after his speech at the R- DNC.

BEHAR: Oh, come on!

HASSELBECK:
You don’t believe me?

BEHAR: No, I don’t.

HASSELBECK:
Call me a liar then Joy.

BEHAR: No, not that you’re lying, you’re being delusional.

HASSELBECK: I believe I was the first person to say- no I’m not being delusional.

[laughter]

BEHAR: I just don’t believe that. That is like me saying-

HASSELBECK: Do you want some more Barack Obama Kool-Aid or what would you like?

BEHAR: That is like saying I would have voted for George Bush. That was low, but we’re okay.

  1. I don’t belive that Hasselbeck didn’t mean Oobama Kool-Aid as a racist stereotype. The $10 Obama Food Stamps designed by racist Diane Fedele of a Califorina GOP Women’s Group shows Obama on the front next to images of Kentucky Fried Chicken, BBQ Ribs, Watermelon, and (wait for it) KOOL-AID!With comments like this I PRAY Hasselbeck doesn’t become a victim like Anne Pressley!As a person of color I am DEEPLY offended and Hasselbeck owes an apology!
