Elisabeth Hasselbeck is disgusted that "The View" is bringing Rosie O'Donnell back, as much as saying Rosie is a turncoat American.
Elisabeth -- who's on vacation from "Fox & Friends" -- called in to the show today to comment on the story TMZ broke Tuesday ... that Rosie's coming back for a second round on "The View."
Elisabeth said, "Here comes to "The View" the very woman who spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network and really in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there."
Elisabeth and Rosie pretty much hated each other ... which ironically made the show compelling.
Fact is ... "The View" now needs another Elisabeth to survive.
