Elisabeth Hasselbeck Fires Back at Meghan McCain for "Misrepresenting" Her Words


Where is Barbara Walters to put these ladies in separate corners? Elisabeth Hasselbeck is hitting back at Meghan McCain's comments surrounding her statements on the coronavirus pandemic. Last week, McCain was a virtual guest on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen where she was asked by a viewer if she would co-host with The View's former panelist.

McCain didn't mince words when she stated said she didn't want to share the stage with Hasselbeck after her March 11 appearance on The View. The former Fox and Friends host talked weighed in on how President Donald Trump handled the situation and stated,

I think we should prepare. I think we should pray. I’m not going to let coronavirus rule me and let it be an idol. I’m going to use Purell.

McCain responded to Hasselbeck's remarks and said,

I think it’s really really unfortunate and dangerous that she said that, and I don’t need to co-host together with her again. And it’s unfortunate cause I’ve been a huge fan for a long time. Anyone who is screwing around with this virus and putting out misinformation, I really don’t have a lot of time for right now.

Meghan- i am going to call you and handle this in the best socially distanced direct manner possible - but hey girl - We are all just doing our best, and I don’t know why you are taking an opportunity to be so aggressive toward me during such a stressful time.
