Kathy Griffin: Rosie quit because of the split screen

Such a child. What she means is she quit because Hasselbeck finally hit back at her hard enough to warrant that split-screen treatment.

But of course, she’s a good friend. Even when she’s defending the defacement of Hasselbeck’s photos.

“I don’t even know where to start,” she told a sold-out crowd at the Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. “I tell you who I got a call from [on Friday]. ‘Hey Kath. It’s Ro. What are you doing? Wanna hang out?’ I spent the whole day with Rosie! How about that!?'”…

Griffin has guest-hosted on The View twice in the last two weeks, “so I was there before, and after the whole split-screen, Hannity and Colmes s—,” she said.

Revealing a conversation she had with O’Donnell about how the show’s producers split O’Donnell’s image with Hasselbeck’s during their fight, Griffin said: “And that’s what it was. I said, ‘What was really it?’ And she said, ‘The split-screen.’ She said, ‘I don’t want to do Hannity and Colmes. ‘ ”

Griffin also explained O’Donnell’s reaction to news that Donald Trump had called Hasselbeck “stupid” in TV interviews. “Awww. that’s sad,” was her reaction, according to Griffin, who added: “So, she doesn’t even hate Elisabeth.”

Update: Wow. Tough week for Truthers.
