Elisabeth Hasselbeck Recites Her Poem About Bin Laden

| Filed under: Elisabeth HasselbeckPerezTV

Guess that's one way to tell children who Osama Bin Laden is…

Check out the video (above) of Elisabeth Hasselbeck reciting a poem that she wrote for her children about Bin Laden, in case they ever ask her about him.

Here are the lyrics to her poem:

Osama Bin Laden was a very bad guy,
He hurt many people - don't ask me why,
We shot him in the head and now he is dead -
Now close your eyes and go to bed.

What do U think of Elisabeth Hasselbeck's poem about Bin Laden?

    Lovely. She is the epitome of tact and grace. Why doesn't she just give her children the NY Post cover? "Got the bastard!"

    I feel someone should do the same to her.

  3. 3

    Snicker. I've never cared much for Elizabeth, but I like her poem.

  4. 4

    Put it in context Perez - she was saying her children are too young to know about it but she would simplify it for them this way and she read the poem - short and simple, only because Barbara told her to. It was tongue in cheek you know.

    shut the fuck up, Elizabeth Simpleton

  6. 6

    0h america you amuse me, this girl is not very smart

  7. 7

    hey kids let me just tell you that we shot a guy in the head before you go to sleep… yeah that wont give them nightmares!

  8. 8

    not something she should recite to her children. nightmares?

  9. 9

    what an image to leave a child before going to bed! Jeez

  10. 10

    She was joking, right?

  11. Mimsi says – reply to this


    ….we shot him in the head ans now he is dead. now close your eyes and go to bed? REALLY? she is a crqazy bitch. Who would write a peom like that for her kids?

  12. 12

    When Elisabitch Hasselbeck's kids turn 18 and some1 says, 'well, you know what happened to Bin Laden…" They'll say- "I thought that was my mom's BFF, she loved him so much she made a lullaby for him!"

  13. 13

    If Lady Gaga said that you would be jerking off to the poem.

  14. 14

    she is a complete moron.

  15. 15

    a 'simplified' version will leave the children to think for some reason it's ok to shoot people, but not giving a reason for why they needed to do it will lead the children to come up with their own conclusions which is kind of irresponsible. let's not even get into the fact that condoning violence in a child's poem is all sorts of wrong. she should be protecting them from thoughts and ideas of violence. what a witch.

    Re: Ohiogirl – you think its appropriate to bluntly tell young children that a man was shot in the head and killed….especially before they go to bed? children are smart. sure they dont need to be watching cnn either, but this poem is upsurd. if they ask, it should be explained to them in words they understand. not "hey heres this short, morbid poem now go to bed."

  18. 18

    Awww….how old is she….6??? Yay for her! (I think)

  19. 19

    She's all class, that one.

  20. 20

    The way I explained it to my daughter when she asked went like this.

    "Osama Bin Laden was a very bad man. He hurt and killed lots of people. Its never ok to wish anyone were dead, but its a good thing that this man is gone."

    She seemed satisfied with that. We'll see what happens when she asks why he did the things he did.

    Found this brilliant comment made by a reader of the Huffington Post:
    In your dreams to come of death and guns
    Think that waterboard­ing prisoners could be fun
    A Republican you will be when you are grown
    Because of these nasty seeds I've sown.

  22. 22

    I used to like her …thought she was just a bit of an airhead…now I realize what a dumbass!!!! Hope she's on birth control!!

  23. 23

    Simple and to the point. It's an absolutely inspired poem.

  24. 24

    She is so weird.

  25. 25

    stupid!! wow i mean what if he is dead there is millions just like him what are we going to about them? we can kill them all but we don't solve the problem we can't see what makes them do what they do. oh yeah shut the fuck up you stupid bitch!

  26. 26

    I know he killed lots of people, but the way some people are talking about it is horrible. We killed a man. And that is horrible that she is telling her children that instead of saying "he was a bad man that hurt America and we protected our country".

  27. 27

    What a shitty mom.

  28. 28

    We killed one man out of the however many that will take his spot. If the United States actually backed out of other countries business, we might actually not have people attacking us. Who knows if it was actually him that died, it could just be the government doing it to prove Obama did something in office. I actually thought he died years ago..

    Re: I am awesome–o – Are you people morons?.. she made a poem to recite to the audience, NOT her children. She made light of an obviously difficult situation parents are facing & made a stupid little poem for the adults, which they ALL laughed at. Clearly they got the joke too. I'm no fan of hers, but realize she raises her kids way better than that and have the brains to differentiate between lame satire and actually saying this to your kids..

  31. 31

    people need to read/watch before they comment!/
    first, Elisabeth is a good person. She wasn't trying to scare her children. Just watched the view, and I believe she said "My kids are too young to ask, but i just wrote it anyway" I dont think she even said anything to her kids.
    Yes, maybe it's a bit harsh….but its a poem for kids….and it is the truth. Come on people!!!! It's EVERYWHERE! A kid walking to school could get the HUGE time magazine cover on the street…or hear it on the news…
    and you can't tell a little kid "Well, the navy seals went in, very secretly….and strategically" THEY WONT GET IT!

    let her be. she did what she did! IT'S HER! GET OVER IT PEOPLE!

  32. 32

    this is a very bad show.

  33. 33

    Horrible horrible woman…

  34. 34

    Gaga's already planning to steal it for her next album.

  35. 35

    Her husband's STEROIDS are going to kick-in and that BITCH is gonna wish the Plastic Surgeon to the Stars was not ran of the road……

  36. 36

    What a simpleton.

    Re: yeaman – ahhh i pressed send twice. sorry

  38. 38

    JUVENILE …. like most of her ill thought comments in general

  39. 39

    How about just talking to your kids like they're fucking people?

    Re: Norma Benítez – Sorry, I don't think she believes in B.C.

  41. 41

    Lame. Just like EH. Really stupid. Maybe cute for little kids, but leave it at home, lady.

  42. @v@ says – reply to this


    Hey, whatever floats her boat. I like the last line a lot. I also think that maybe she should look further into the "don't ask me why.'

    I do not like green eggs and ham.
    I do not like Elisabeth Hasselbeck - no ma'am,
    She's an annoying twit - yup,
    I wish she would just STFU.

  45. 45

    There are better ways to explain this situation to kids.

  46. 46

    I wrote better shit when I was in middle school. How could she possibly look at that and say `oh, what a good poem, I`ll have to share this with the world!`She shouldn`t be feeding that shit to her dog let alone the public.

  47. 47

    That is inappropriate. Hasn't anyone heard of "an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind"?? I don't think reciting your children a poem that offers no context and little information should, so nonchalantly include the line "we shot him in the head and now he is dead" followed by close your eyes and go to bed… So that's it? You tell your child "we" who is unspecified, shot someone in the head and that's it. The end. I don't care if she didn't actually plan on telling her kids this. The point is, the fact that she even wrote the poem makes her an idiot.

  48. 48

    wow, that was deep


  49. 49

    I'm afraid that something just popped in Elisabeth's head! She speaks out of a small corner of her mouth, blinks a lot, and doesn't make any sense, but then again she never did!

  50. 50

    Just as retarded as she is.

  51. 51

    Good gawd. What a fucking retard.

  52. 52

    No offense but it sounds really childish….

  53. 53

    Re: cbatower – omfg that was epic lol xDDD

  54. 54

  55. 55

    Is there a walnut lodged in her brain or something?

  56. 56

    God this is insane she should be ashamed!

  57. 57

    it is sick comments like this that make america a target.

  58. 58

    Reminds me of something a 4th grader would write.

  59. 59

    There has been reports and not from paps that she is mean and rude to her children. Regular ppl have been witness to her being mean to her kids. This was not a very good parent poem. She is such a stupid twat. I wish they would replace her on The View so I can start watching it again. I won't watch with her on it. I want to slap her across her pea brain face everytime I see her.

  60. 60

    Well, that's as much as we were told. He was not tried in a court of law. I was told he was a bad guy, I was told he was shot, I have proof of none of this!

  61. 61

    Wow, what an ego on this woman. Anything for attention i guess
    what really gets me is the "we shot him in the head" part..who the fuck are "we"? Why do so many take credit for this and why are "we" so fucken proud? but when the president or any other American does something stupid or embarrassing, they stand on their own?
    She makes me sick

  62. 62

    Not only is she stupid, if this is the kind of thing to which she exposes her children, she needs pareneting classes very badly. She and Star Jones are the worst things that The View has ever had.

  63. 63

    That is the dumbest poem I ever read. Seriously, did a 4th grader write that? The last part doesn't even make sense! Ok go to bed now right after I just left you on this note: shot in the head and now he's dead. What a pleasant last thought for a kid to imagine on their way to pleasant dreams. Idiot. Very innappropriate. I can think of a better way of explaining him to a kid:

    Kids, Osama was a very bad man that did very bad things to our country. He hurt a lot of innocent people and a lot of people in the USA have been very scared for many years. Sunday, our President and our military - the people that fight to keep us safe - made him go away and he's never coming back. Now we don't have to be scared anymore.

    Simple. Easy to understand. NOT GRAPHIC. And…you're welcome.

  64. 64

    "Don't Ask Me Why" - I'll tell you why. Osama bin Laden was apart of the cold war era, just old enough to remember what the American forces did to his country. We gave them weapons to keep the Russians out of Afghanastan and never helped rebuild a war stricken country. They were left with nothing. America should educate itself. This will better prevent another 9/11. You never know what type of things people will do when their backs are in the corner. And yes, thank God he is gone. But who's next?

  65. 65

    are you kidding me?
    who would want to watch a show with a bunch of elderly women sitting around a table talking anyway. all they do is interrupt each other and laugh at bad jokes. boring.
