Elizabeth Hasselbeck calls Kathy Griffin ‘scum’

Elizabeth Hasselbeck called Kathy Griffin ‘scum’ after the comedian called a senator’s daughters ‘prostitutes’

On Monday morning, co-host of “The View” Elizabeth Hasselbeck called Irish American comedian Kathy Griffin “scum” after Griffin said Senator Scott Brown “has two daughters that are prostitutes" on her show “My Life on the D-List.”

Hasselbeck, who was backed up by co-host Whoopi Goldberg, said, “You defend your daughters against scum who come after them.”

Goldberg agreed, “If somebody talked about my daughter as a joke like that, I would beat their ass.”

The conversations escalated between the co-hosts as follows:

“Are you calling Kathy ‘scum’ now?” Joy Behar asked Hasselbeck.

“In general, if someone called your daughter a prostitute would you think they’d be scum?” added Hasselbeck.

“I’d call them [sic] scum.”

“I know my daughter’s not a prostitute, so it [would be] funny,” said Behar.

“It’s just a joke, Elisabeth.”

Hasselbeck wasn’t impressed and told Griffin to “cut it out.”

Dana Bash and John King who are both reporters for CNN showed Griffin a picture of Brown, and she retorted that he was a Massachusetts Senator and that the two girls he has are prostitutes.

Brown was upset at Griffin’s comments and said his daughters were “off limits.
