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.
