Barbara Walters and Elisabeth Hasselbeck got into a bit of a tiff on Tuesday's "View."
Hasselbeck was defending the comments made by Mitt Romney in a leaked fundraiser video. Romney said that 47 percent of Americans are "dependent" on government. Hasselbeck endorsed this view.
"There's a general feeling that, with more and more people becoming dependent on the government, that by next July we could perhaps be celebrating Dependence Day, not Independence Day," she said, prompting immediate scoffing from Walters.
"Oh, Elisabeth," Walters said off-camera.
"This is not something that I'm just feeling alone," Hasselbeck continued.
"Yes it is," Walter said. This riled Hasselbeck up. "You can patronize me for what I'm thinking and you can put me in a corner but I'm not alone," she fired back.
"Elisabeth, don't take this personally," Walters said. "No, I'm not!" Hasselbeck replied.
