Sarah Palin: Bill Nye Is a Kid’s Show Actor, Not a Scientist
Sarah Palin, who resigned as Alaska governor for no reason other than to make millions selling ghost written books hawking resentment and stumping for dangerously crazy congressional candidates, was hustling for climate change denialist hustler Marc Marano when she attacked Bill Nye’s science cred by saying he’s nothing but a kid’s show actor.
Thank you again, Senator John McCain, for bringing this woman to the forefront, and for contributing to the dumbing down of America.
Which has helped, in large part, to make Donald Trump the Republican Party frontrunner for the 2016 GOP nomination.
Sarah Palin tore into Bill Nye’s scientific qualifications on Thursday, saying he has no authority to say climate-change skeptics are wrong.
Palin, the former governor of Alaska and the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, said the man known for his show “Bill Nye the Science Guy” is using his position of authority to harm children by teaching them that climate change is real and man-made.
“Bill Nye is as much a scientist as I am,” Palin said at a Capitol Hill event held to roll out a film that aims to discredit climate scientists. “He’s a kids’ show actor; he’s not a scientist.
Palin said behind the “alarmism” that the climate is changing is a “predetermined” and political agenda “of those, I think, who are controlling the narrative right now on changes in the weather.”
And in case you’ve got a mean hankering for a Palin word salad, she did not disappoint:
She has endorsed Donald Trump in the 2016 election, though she largely shied away from talking about presidential politics Thursday, except to suggest that candidates talk more about the controversy over climate change.
“It’s something that our candidates should be talking about and giving us their view on and hopefully acknowledging that it needs to become, in the science community, less political,” she said. “Otherwise, it leads us to believe that so many things coming from perhaps the scientists could be bogus. If this is bogus, you know, what else are they trying to tell us and trying to control us around if they can’t get this one right?”
