Fox Host: Erickson A 'Jerk' For Calling Wendy Davis An 'Abortion Barbie'


Van Susteren said that Erickson did not smartly argue against Davis' views, and instead acted "boorish."

"Sometimes if you are smart in your debate, you persuade someone who otherwise had disagreed with you. And then there are the creeps who take cheap shots because they are too ignorant and small to engage in an important discussion," she said. "No one should pay any attention to them – they are not persuasive, they are noise, and in some instances boorish and obnoxious."

Van Susteren highlighted a few of Erickson's tweets about Wendy Davis, which were made after the state senator acknowledged inconsistencies in her bio.

After Van Susteren published her criticism, Erickson tweeted another dig at Davis.
