Fox News Channel’s Shannon Bream shut down hypocritical liberals who thought to “insult” her with a comparison to Barbie.
The Fox News anchor called out trolls who regularly bash the network’s accomplished female journalists as mindless Barbie dolls who are all looks and no brains.
Bream had responded to a tweet about her comments on former President Obama being critical of the U.S. Supreme Court when another Twitter user chimed in, calling Bream “Barbie.” Even more worthy of an eye roll than the intended insult was the fact that the person tweeting was a woman.
Barbie, criticism allowed. Deliberate destruction of the reputation of one of the foundations
of the Republic to sow dischord to gin up his base to come to his aid should Mueller or impeachment make it necessary, that is new by Trump and unacceptable.https://t.co/GiIu9Orpwt

Bream dropped an explosive reality check on Halli Casser-Jayne, who is herself an author, blogger and talk show host.
I’m never sure if people calling me Barbie is supposed to be an insult? I mean she has been a surgeon, paleontologist, served in every branch of the military, firefighter, architect, pilot, computer engineer, astronaut, etc. I’m just a measly law school honors grad ?♀️ https://t.co/qrwmj7VnLs

The 47-year-old Fox News anchor may not have Barbie’s resume but she is an accomplished talent on her own. The Florida native and Liberty University graduate was a semi-finalist in the 1991 Miss America pageant and changed from a law career to a career in television news. She currently anchors the prime time news program, “Fox News @ Night.”
Twitter users applauded Bream’s classy take down on Twitter.
@ShannonBream I have only heard someone that is attractive or beautiful called “Barbie.” If it was meant to be an insult think of it as a compliment because you are beautiful!

Great comeback, Ms. Bream.

You have a great ability to handle such “back-handed compliments” with total class. To me, that is a sign of a mature, self-confident, and strong person. Your beauty, combined with your intelligence, is apparently threatening to some, but that’s their problem to work thru!

@ShannonBream , Barbie is an American icon! Little girls love her! I think that’s a complement❤

That is the best tweet I have read in a really long time! You go, Shannon! (I have a daughter named Shannon, so I am kind of partial………)

Smart and beautiful is a lethal combination!

And they came to her defense against the left’s blatant double standards.
Smart, beautiful women are always a threat to insecure people. You are both smart AND beautiful. When people have no sound argument to put forth, they start attacking those who do. Love you, Shannon! ?

The old saying is true…If it weren’t for double standards, liberals would have none.

Sad the way #TheLeft‘s women have a continual habit of trying to make themselves feel smarter by using patronizing nicknames directed to other women. @TheHalliCJShow is just jealous because you have beauty, brains, & class. I’d take it as a compliment for sure. #HatersGonnaHate
