Elisabeth Hasselbeck Kicked Off ‘The View’ for Being ‘Too Extreme and Right Wing’

Joy Behar announced her departure from The View last week saying she wanted to focus on the play she’s writing and her stand-up. Stand-up as in comedy not stand up like in actual standing up like I thought she meant when I found out she was 70.

While Behar is willingly leaving in August when her contract is up, Us Weekly reports Elisabeth Hasselbeck is being fired from the show.

According to sources, the conservative Hasselbeck isn’t popular with TV audiences because they consider her “too extreme and right wing.” This according to a recent poll. “People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed.”

A rep for The View acted coy saying, “Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of The View and has a long term contract.”

That probably means they’re still trying to figure out how to tell her without having her make a scene. I’d suggest they do it with a singing telegram or even better, a strippergram. No one ever breaks down and cries while a guy thrusts his penis in their face. Ever!

If you’re not a liberal douchebag that supports saving whales and aborting babies, you can’t succeed in Hollywood. Besides, why would she want to be on a show with all those screeching hags? They hate her because she’s beautiful.
