Every once in a while, a person says something so profoundly stupid that we have to call a spade a spade and call them idiotic. When it’s a “celebrity”, it’s even worse because for some strange reason, the public gives people they recognize or like more credence even when they are spouting utter nonsense on a topic in which they are completely untrained in and thus exhibiting gross misunderstanding.
Suzanne Somers, actress, was live on Huffington Post (why anyone would have her as a guest for anything other than on the subject of entertainment, I have no idea). She proceeded to prattle on about ridiculous excuses for the actions of the Newtown shooter – toxins and diet.
The country’s leaders are busy debating gun control following the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., but Suzanne Somers says we should be looking at something else as a contributing factor: diet.
Somers told HuffPost Live Thursday that she feels diet and household toxins may have “electrified” Adam Lanza’s brain.
“Everybody’s looking at guns — I look at it and go, ‘what is the diet of that guy who went nuts? What toxins was he exposed to? What kind of household cleaners are they using?’” Somers told HuffPost Live’s Nancy Redd.
Yep. Not drugs, not alcohol. Not mental illness. Household cleaners. Because she once talked to a neuroscientist. This insanity qualifies at the worst POS I’ve heard all day and if you knew the news I sort through to find this stuff, that’s a PRETTY stinky accolade.
At the end of this piece, they mention that she may not be so off base, since there was that story about lead.
HuffPo – a wretched hive of scum and quackery. (I think Orac said that.)
