Elisabeth Hasselbeck's 'Fox & Friends' Debut Is Here, With Donald Trump's Help (VIDEO)

"I can't believe this is happening right now!"

So said Elisabeth Hasselbeck on her first official day as a host of "Fox & Friends."

After much buildup, the show's opening hours went about as viewers might expect. Brian Kilmeade and Steve Doocy noted that Hasselbeck sometimes didn't wear many clothes on "Survivor." Hasselbeck likened Barbara Walters to a fantastic surgeon. Hilarity ensued.

Also, they brought on Donald Trump, who gave Hasselbeck his seal of approval ("you made the right choice"). She then asked him whether President Obama should give up his Nobel Peace Prize.
