Hasselbeck: Muppets were ‘non-consensual participants’ in steamy Rielle photo

Published

on

Rielle Hunter, John Edwards’ former mistress, is upset over the sexy photos she posed for, recently published by GQ magazine — but nobody bothered to ask how her fellow models felt about the recent overexposure.

Thankfully, there’s The View co-host Elizabeth Hasslebeck, championing the cause of innocent-yet-fictional characters.

In one particular image shot by photographer Mark Seliger, Rielly poses sans pants with a unicorn, Dora the Explorer, Kermit the Frog and Barney the purple dinosaur.

All of them, “non-consensual participants,” according to Hasselbeck, who made the comment during a March 15 broadcast on ABC.

“If you’re gonna involve Kermit, Barney and Dora, put your pants on, okay?” she said. “I mean, aside from the story being disgusting, don’t bring them into … These are non-consensual participants in this. It’s borderline perverse.”

“She thought [the photos] were repulsive,” said View host Barbara Walters.

Fellow View co-host Whoopie Goldberg didn’t quite understand what Hunter is so upset about.

“This interview was done for GQ magazine, and GQ is a sexy magazine for men,” she said. “It does not seem to me that it should be as surprising. […] It’s GQ, so I’m not quite buying it.”

Walters noted that Hunter was not paid for the GQ interview or the photos.

The government's response to the pandemic has further enriched the wealthy, while everyday people, especially Black and Brown workers, face sickness, death, and destitution. Government handouts to the rich are unsurprising, since they repeat the century-old pattern of "rescue packages", but another pattern is more perplexing: why have business leaders not stepped up to demand a robust public health response, which would ultimately be in their own self-interest? The titans of industry have mostly stood by in the face of Trump's criminal negligence, which has devastated much of the 99% but also endangers the wealthy.

The Trump Organization is planning a massive real estate development, according to a new report by Martyn McLaughlin in The Scotsman.

"In what would be one of the most ambitious and expensive foreign projects undertaken by Donald Trump’s family business since he assumed the presidency, his company has commissioned a detailed masterplan to develop as many as 225 properties, as well as leisure facilities and shops, on an expanse of rolling farmland adjacent to Turnberry’s lauded Ailsa course, a four-time host of golf’s Open Championship," the Scottish newspaper reported.
