Rosie O’Donnell in the shadow of Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s return to “The View”

Rosie O’Donnell called Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s return to The View “strange” and suggested a conservative personality, so she no longer watched the show.

“I watched it,” the 60-year-old comedian said Thursday in the TikTok music video, referring to Hasselbeck’s appearance on ABC’s talk show the day before.

“I remembered why I don’t want to watch it with her anymore. Her little post-it notes, I don’t know – she added.

O’Donnell was referring to the decision of a Fox & Friends alumni to criticize President Biden with sticky notes during the segment.

“Americans Can’t Afford Your America” ​​read first, then “Gas Prices Are Hurt Us.”

Alum “Survivor” completed these notes for others, reading “Recession is real” and “Although I did not vote for you, you have my prayers.”

O’Donnell called Hasselbeck’s move “strange”, concluding: “Yes. Um, I hope you have a good day. And if you saw it yesterday, hope you’ve recovered.

The actress worked alongside Hasselbeck on “Widok” from 2006 to 2007, leaving the series after the infamous fight.

Hasselbeck quit in 2013 – and had words chosen for O’Donnell when the “SMILF” alumnus returned the following year in her absence.

“What could ruin a holiday more than hearing the news like this?” Hasselbeck said in a 2014 show “Fox & Friends”.

“Talk about unsecuring the border,” she said then. “The same woman comes to” Widok “who spits in the face of our army, spits in the face of her own net, and in fact in the face of the person who stood by her and conducted civilized debates until she was there.”

When O’Donnell spoke to Variety five years later about how she had previously “had a crush on” Hasselbeck, the former Look for Less host called her comments “disturbing” and said she “immediately” began to pray for them.

“[Hasselbeck] She was so afraid of the concept of a lesbian in love with her that she had to go directly to Jesus, not to pass or collect $ 200, ”quipped O’Donnell on Instagram in March 2019. “She kept calling on Jesus.

“Yes, Jesus wanted to save her from a gay man who found her lovely!”
