On Wednesday, Elisabeth Hasselbeck said goodbye to The View. By later that evening, Joy Behar and guests of her Current TV talk show, Joy Behar: Say Anything, were openly mocking The View and Barbara Walters’ handling of Hasselbeck.
Behar, who is also on her way out the door, was joined on her primetime show by several panelists including gossip blogger Rob Shuter who criticized Barbara Walters for being less than truthful about Elisabeth Hasselbeck leaving The View when reports first surfaced months ago.
Everyone agreed that Hasselbeck would be a ‘perfect fit’ at Fox News Channel morning show Fox & Friends, though Comedian Chuck Nice suggested that Barbara conspired with Fox News president Roger Ailes to take Elisabeth off of her hands.
Joy Behar was quick to quip, “You think she’s sleeping with Roger Ailes?”
