“The View” co-host Joy Behar took a shot at Meghan McCain after her old conservative sparring partner Elisabeth Hasselbeck returned after nearly six years.
Hasselbeck, who was part of the show for almost 10 years, appeared Tuesday to promote her new book, “Point of View: A Fresh Look at Work, Faith, and Freedom” — which details the shock and betrayal she felt after her 2013 dismissal.
“I grew up here, I had babies here, this feels really good,” Hasselbeck said, adding that she had initially been reluctant to promote the book on the show she once co-hosted. “I have to say, I’m thankful. God’s been good to let me come back. I’ll be honest, when I wrote this book, one of the things I said was, ‘I’ll write this book, God, but I won’t go back to ‘The View’ to talk about it.”
Behar joked that God knows “The View” helps sell books, and Hasselbeck fired back with her own joke.
“Are you telling me, Joy, that you, too, now hear God?” Hasselbeck said. “I love you. I love that I bother you today, still.”
Behar insisted that she didn’t bother her, and Abby Huntsman tried to smooth over an awkward moment by teasing Hasselbeck for being “too skinny.”
“She’s always been skinny,” Behar said. “We used to fight on the air all the time.”
That’s when McCain, who frequently argues with Behar on the air and reportedly backstage, chimed in.
“What’s that like?” McCain shouted, laughing. “I don’t know.”
Behar said her relationship with Hasselbeck was different, and she took a subtle shot at her current colleague.
“It’s a little different,” Behar said. “But truthfully, we never fought backstage. See, that’s the difference.”
The audience hooted in recognition of the pair’s feud, and McCain moved on to her next question.
REVEALED: Jeffrey Epstein used his fake passport to enter multiple countries

Robert Hooke: The ‘English Leonardo’ who was a 17th-century scientific superstar
Considering his accomplishments, it’s a surprise that Robert Hooke isn’t more renowned. As a physician, I especially esteem him as the person who identified biology’s most essential unit, the cell.
Like Leonardo da Vinci, Hooke excelled in an incredible array of fields. The remarkable range of his achievements throughout the 1600s encompassed pneumatics, microscopy, mechanics, astronomy and even civil engineering and architecture. Yet this “English Leonardo” – well-known in his time – slipped into relative obscurity for several centuries.
WHO declares Ebola epidemic in DR Congo an international emergency
The World Health Organization on Wednesday declared the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo a "public health emergency of international concern," a rare designation only used for the gravest epidemics.
The Ebola epidemic in DR Congo, the second deadliest on record, has largely been contained to remote areas, but this week saw a patient diagnosed with the virus in the eastern city of Goma, the first case in a major urban hub.
