Elisabeth Hasselbeck called Bill Maher a "chauvinistic bigot" on The View

Bill Maher used Hasselbeck as a punchline for a joke in his "New Rules" segment, referencing the news that Egyptian police had released CBS News correspondent Lara Logan after detaining her during last week's turmoil in Cairo.

Maher joked:

"New Rule: Now that Hosni Mubarak has released Lara Logan, he must put her intrepid hotness on a plane back to the United States immediately. In exchange, we will send Elisabeth Hasselbeck."

Elisabeth Hasselbeck responded with this statement on Monday morning's The View:

"I will say this to boy Billy. It is unfair. It is chauvinistic what you said—and you’ll probably run this again and I find it disturbing but also amusing that I happen to be on your mind. Um, it is wrong to do to any person, but to any woman who just happens to disagree with you. And you obviously missed the call of civility from our President—Barack Obama and you were on the other line with ignorance and hate. Maybe next time you should pick up the call. That’s all."

Joy Behar defended Maher's politically incorrect style and then asked Hasselbeck: "Did it hurt your feelings?"

"No, he doesn't have the ability to hurt my feelings because he's not a real man," said Hasselbeck and then added: "I think he's a chauvinistic bigot."

it doesn't have anything to do with you being a woman, it has to do with you being a moron.

A better suggestion to say: She took off her clothes for a piece of chocolate on national television.
