We can't believe stuff like this keeps happening!
It all started when Mississippi governor Phil Bryant put the blame for below average reading abilities of American students on their working mothers. He said:
"I’m gonna get in trouble if I … you want me to tell the truth? I think parents became, both parents started working, and the mom is in the workplace. It’s not a bad thing. I’m gonna get in trouble, I can just see, I can just see the emails tomorrow. But now both parents are working, they’re pursuing their careers."
Sexist, gross, and RUDE!
But then it got worse!
In an effort to start a dialogue around the governor's comments, Fox Business News anchors Stuart Varney and Charles Payne invited Kelly Cutrone on their show.
Cutrone accepted the invitation, thinking it would be a good opportunity to share her point of view as a single working mother and CEO of her own successful PR company People's Revolution.
"I was invited on the show and thought Stuart Varney would take the Varney route and I would take the Cutrone route and it would be a good discussion."
Instead of facilitating a healthy discussion, however, Varney attacked Cutrone for being single, saying:
"Do you have a man? Are you married? Why not? What happened?"
WHAT THE EFF???
But Kelly wasn't fazed. She responded:
"Men have a hard time when women make a lot of money. They feel very emasculated by that."
Well, think we know who won that debate!
