Elisabeth Hasselbeck Makes Her ‘Fox & Friends’ Debut

Elisabeth Hasselbeck wasted no time in her debut on Fox & Friends early Monday morning. After handing the guys new coffee mugs, and speed-marveling at the new set, she sat down on the new curvy couch, dismissed her time on The View with a couple nice comments (Barbara Walters is like “the best surgeon”) — ditto Survivor and her college softball team — then jumped right in to a new report claiming Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi investigation let top officials off the hook. Barely pausing for breath, she and the guys began to debate the shocking disparity between the questions asked of the two Miss America finalists the previous night. One finalist got asked about the Obama administration’s threats to attack Syria over the use of chemical weapons — the other about Miley Cyrus twerking at the VMAs and nude music video. “In defense…in our home, twerking is a weapon of mass destruction,” Hasselbeck said. “I see nothing wrong.”

Hasselbeck, in a chic sleeveless lavender dress, joined Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, in the position formerly held by Gretchen Carlson, who moved out Friday and will helm a one-hour daytime show on the cable news network. Carlson got sheet-caked on her final day on the show she started on in 2006 — one year after joining FNC.  Ironically, Carlson did not get to weigh in on Monday’s segment about Miss America question disparity — she’d exited the show on the 25th anniversary of her having been crowned Miss America.  In July, Fox News announced Hasselbeck would leave ABC’s The View and join F&F this month.
