Starring on “Baywatch” must severely lower the IQ.
This morning on the PMS Bitch-fest known as “The View,” former “Baywatch” and “Knight Rider” star David Hasselhoff couldn’t figure out how to defend his girlie-man crying on the “American Idol” finale. (WATCH THE very brief VIDEO OF DAVID HASSELHOFF CRYING HERE for a big laugh.)
So he turned to a Hollywood standard. He attacked the White House.
When asked why he cried on the awards show, in whose audience he sat, the excessively cheesy Hasselhoff exclaimed:
Well, maybe if we had more emotion in the White House, we wouldn’t be having this mess we’re having.
Predictably, the mindless desperate housewives that populate “The View’s” audience gave Hasselhoff–who was on the show to promote his roles in the movie “Click” (it stinks; stay tuned for review, Friday) and as a judge on Regis Philbin/Simon Cowell’s “America’s Got Talent”–loud applause and cheers for his outburst.
While Hasselhoff didn’t say to what he was referring, presumably his caustic remark was a criticism of the War in Iraq. We guess if President Bush cried like a girlie-man in public at silly awards shows, all would be solved. The beheadings would end, and the whole Islamic world would respect us. Peace through crying. That’s a new one.
Thanks, David Hasselhoff, for this useful advice.
