After fellow ex-host Joy Behar slammed Hasselbeck for comments made on Fox News, Hasselbeck took to Instagram
New platform, same old fight.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck went digital with her latest volley in the three-way battle with Rosie O’Donnell and Joy Behar, responding to Behar’s criticism of her criticism of O’Donnell, who was rumored to be returning to “The View” at the time (which was made official on Thursday).
Yes, this is getting complicated.
It began when Hasselbeck, speaking on “Fox and Friends,” charged O’Donnell with “spitting in the face of our military,” as well as several other faces. Behar called that a “below-the-belt” and “hate-filled” remark, which led to Hasselbeck’s late Thursday Instagram volley, which was hand-written for some reason.
“I actually called to talk to her 7 years ago,” Hasselbeck wrote, speaking of O’Donnell. “She did not want to speak to me. I am happy to have a #momversation about why I would never defend her 2007 comments below,” she added in a sentence structured to sound way less harsh than the message it delivers.
Hasselbeck included the statement from O’Donnell that set off this disagreement underneath, saving everyone a Google search and making it clear that the Iraq War will never stop being a divisive issue.
