Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a celebrity mom who is used to being at the center of controversy, and after reciting a poem live on The View about explaining Osama Bin Laden to kids, she is sure to get mixed reviews from parents. My guess is that people who love her will fluff off the poem like it’s nothing, and people who aren’t fans of Hasselbeck will get all bent out of shape over it.
To hear what she said, you can watch the video clip below of Elisabeth Hasslebeck sharing her children’s poem, detailing what she would say about Osama Bin Laden if her kids were to ask her about him.
The poem reads as follows:
“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.”
Upon finishing the poem, Elisabeth got laughter and cheers from the audience, and also from her View co-hosts, who don’t always agree with everything she says.
What do you think of Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s poem? Is it funny, or a bit over the top as far as what should be said to kids?
