You know, with all the focus on Barack Obama, you really can’t blame a liberal for making this mistake. However, it doesn’t make it any less funny when it happens.
On Thursday’s “The View,” the ladies were having a discussion about Britney Spears, and where she could go to escape all the paparazzi and attention. Co-host Joy Behar proudly exclaimed: “She needs to go wherever Obama bin Laden is hiding, because we can’t find him!” (video available here courtesy of our friend Ms Underestimated).
At that point, Rosie O'Donnell asked surprisedly: “Obama bin Laden?”
Joy confusedly asked, “What’s his name?” Barbara Walters then corrected Behar as the audience broke out in laughter and applause.
Rosie saved the day by making a mock public service announcement to a wildly enthusiastic crowd: “We would like to apologize to all of the Obamas in America who felt offended by Joy’s slip of the tongue.”
Honestly, could you boil water with the combined intelligence quotient of these panel members?
