Elisabeth Blasts Rosie: I'm No Donald Trump!

5/23/2007 1:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The bitchfight between Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck officially went nuclear -- and we mean nuclear -- on this morning's "The View," and it's a miracle, frankly, that fists didn't fly.

As usual, Rosie and Elisabeth started in on one another on the topic of Iraq, but it quickly got personal when Rosie, clearly still miffed that Elisabeth hadn't defended her over the whole soldiers-as-terrorists fracas, demanded to know whether Hasselbeck really thought Rosie felt that U.S. soldiers were terrorists, "as my friend, since September." When Elisabeth didn't give her a yes-or-no answer, the verbal fisticuffs began in earnest. In fact, producers saw fit to go split-screen, just to amp up the volume.

Name-calling ensued, with Rosie calling Elisabeth "cowardly," and Elisabeth spitting back at Ro that she's not "poor little Elisabeth," even smacking down guest co-host Sherri Shepherd's suggestion that she chill for the sake of her unborn child, saying, "The baby's FINE."

Joy Behar -- not at all wisecracking and with not inconsiderable exasperation -- asked, "Who's directing this show?! We need a commercial break! What is this, PBS?"

Neil, shame on you voting for Bush! So, you didn't even care that he not only created the anti-gay marriage amendment, but also pushed it down everyone's throat. Do you always cut of your nose to spite your face?
What's the matter, you can't stand outspoken women, even if they are fighting
for your rights too?

LOW CLASS, NO CLASS, ZERO CLASS -- NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE WITH ROSIE. I AM SO TIRED OF HEARING THIS PERSON ATTACK EVERYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH HER VIEWS. THE PROBLEM WITH ROSIE IS SHE IS SO NARCACISTIC . BIG PROBLEMS FOR ROSIE -- DOESN'T SHE HAVE A THERAPIST - NOT DOING HER MUCH GOOD. I DON'T THINK SHE WILL EVER BE TRULY HAPPY. IT'S SO OBVIOUS, SHE IS STILL SEARCHING CONSTANTLY FOR CONTENTMENT! I ACTUALLY FEEL SO SORRY FOR THIS POMPOUS ASS!

how is it that rosie manages to attack anyone/anything /everything? has nobody noticed she can no longer get along with ANYONE? from the 9/11 commission(where was she when the report was being constructed?)her magazine, all the employees there, and anyone who doesnt think the way she does?

for someone who speaks of freedom of speech, she wants to do the speaking...and anyone else who has an opinion is treated like scum?

since she took over the view, and i mean TOOK OVER, the show has become a mini rosie show..from the gifts, contests, and that stupiod freaking group of dancing ppl when a person has been chosen out of the audience. i thought this was a news show...rosie has turned it into a freaking talk show and she refuses to show respect to the others...

what is worse is that barbara waleters has condoned rosie's behavior. she has allowed the show to turn into a carnival and allows rosie to hog the show. this shows a lack of respect for the other women.

as far as rosie saying she "never tried harder to be friends with somebody" meaning EH< that is a crock. very time i tuned in rosie has some crappy remark putting EH down. im not a big fan of EH, but how is it people condone rosie's behavior..would you let her treat YOU the way she treats others? the show isnt a forum for her conspiracy theories...so she took her toys and went home..

i refuse to watch her ever again and will write any sponsor of any show she is on, talk show to jay leno. if everybody did this, maybe she would get through her thick head that she is paranoid and plain cruel.

rosie has changed dramatically in the time her show went off the air. all she does is show anger and hate and self-righteousness. how is it everyone is wrong but rosie? and i would bet she will say something nasty to anyone who disagrees with her. that is her style.

My hope is that all this uproar will force Elizabeth to see that she is out of her element. E really needs to watch back every show, and take a good look @ how perdictably boring she is. E will never be able to compete with true intellegence on the View panel. Go back to School Elizabeth.........You Go ROSIE!

PEOPLE BRINGING UP THEIR CHILDREN IN THE MANNER IN
WHICH THEY (AND MANY OTHER PEOPLE) BELIEVE IS 'RIGHT'
YOU ARE SCREAMING ACCEPTANCE, WHILE HATING OTHERS-
IF YOU ARE SO INTO ACCEPTING OTHERS, THAN DO IT!
