Elisabeth Hasselbeck

Rosie O’Donnell reduced Elisabeth Hasselbeck to tears on Wednesday’s episode of The View. Lo and behold, it wasn’t from the pungent aroma emanating from her folds. Page Six reports,

“Elisabeth just can’t take it any more,” the insider said of her tensions with O’Donnell, who constantly slams her conservative stance. Things got especially ugly on Wednesday. Hasselbeck said she supported the government’s access to citizens’ phone conversations. Liberal O’Donnell responded, “Elisabeth, you are very young and you are very wrong.” Hasselbeck accused Rosie of ageism and broke down later off-camera. By yesterday afternoon, Rosie had blogged: “i said some of elisabeth’s comments were ignorant which was ignorant itself.”

Despite our differing opinions, Elisabeth and I are in the same boat. I also cry when I see Rosie. I cry for humanity and I cry for that turkey that made its way through Rosie’s front door. Jesus, one bite and poof, gone, just like that.
