CNN Legal Analyst Shreds Alex Jones For Using Psychosis as Excuse for Sandy Hook Trutherism: ‘An Insult to Psychotics’

In a video deposition released a few days ago, InfoWars’ Alex Jones attributed his belief in a Sandy Hook shooting hoax to “a form of psychosis.”

CNN legal analyst Paul Callan told Brooke Baldwin, “I was going to explain why ‘pond scum’ was an accurate way to describe him.”

Regarding the claim of psychosis, Callan said, “Personally, I think it’s an insult to psychotics… It’s a cheap excuse, it’s a cheap attempt to use legitimate mental illness as an explanation for his utterly indefensible conduct.”

He added that if they settle the case, Jones would likely “issue a public apology retracting his mindless, idiotic theories about how the shooting went down.”
