Rosie ODonnell vs. Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View They tried to make nice as co-hosts on The View but with such drastically divergent political views, a flare-up between Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Rosie ODonnell was inevitable. Hasselbecks support of the Iraq war, coupled with ODonnells adamant opposition to it, led to constant bickering, and in 2007, their arguments reached fever pitch. O'Donnell called Hasselbeck "cowardly" for not defending O'Donnells use of the word terrorist in a prior discussion. Defend your own insinuations, Hasselbeck shot back. ODonnell soon left the gabfest for good.
