Elisabeth Hasselbeck Fires Back at Rosie O’Donnell & Joy Behar
The “Fox and Friends” star received criticism from both O’Donnell and Joy Behar earlier this week and quickly responded with a post to Instagram.
Elisabeth wrote, "When asked about Barbara Walters announcing her retirement, I provided my analysis. When asked about [Sherri Shepherd] and [Jenny McCarthy] announcing their departure, I provided my analysis. When asked about ROSIE combing back, I provided my analysis. When the next two chairs get filled—if asked—I will provide my analysis."
She continued, "I don't hate Rosie. I actually called to talk to her 7 years ago. She did not want to speak to me."
From there, Hasselbeck posted a conversation between herself and Rosie from 2007- "I am happy to have a #momversation about why I would never defend her 2007 comments."
“O'DONNELL: 'I just want to say something: 655,000 Iraqi civilians are dead. Who are the terrorists?...If you were in Iraq, and another country, the United States, the richest in the world, invaded your country and killed 655,000 of your citizens, what would you call us?’”
Meanwhile, Whoopi Goldberg gave fans some perspective on the drama- "We don't know who's coming in, but I will tell you this: The respect that I have for the people who work here will not change.”
"I will do my best to respect the audience, to make sure that we bring you The View that Barbara Walters wanted you to have, which is women talking about issues. We are not little kids, we are grown ass women. The View is going to evolve as it always has...Let whatever's going to happen, happen, and we hope you will join us when we come back."
