Oh no she didn’t! While serving as a panelist during a conversation about climate change, Sarah Palin totally bashed Bill Nye the Science Guy by claiming he’s not even a scientist at all! Fans are completely outraged by her assessment, and are expressing their rage over it on social media. See the tweets!
Bill Nye fans are NOT happy with Sarah Palin right now! You might be wondering how these two are even being talked about in the same sentence, and it’s all because the controversial politician decided to publicly diss the TV personality during a conference on April 14. Yup, she just went there!
Sarah was a panelist for about 150 people who gathered to watch the documentary “Climate Hustle,” which claims global warming is a hoax and “busts” all the “myths” about it. Bill is briefly featured in the video, and in the clip, he says he hopes deniers of climate change will be rejected by the American people.
Since Sarah and the group watching the film were all non-believers themselves, they obviously scoffed at this comment. “Bill Nye is as much a scientist as I am,” the 52-year-old said. “He’s a kids’ show actor, he’s not a scientist.”
In case you’re not familiar with Bill Nye, he hosted the show Bill Nye The Science Guy from 1993-1998, on which he conducted experiments and taught preteens specific topics in natural science.
Fans flocked Twitter to slam Sarah for bashing Bill this way, mocking her for thinking she’s even a scientist in the slightest. We have to note, though, that others did point out that Bill’s degree from Cornell University is actually in mechanical engineering, which a bunch of commenters said they actually didn’t consider to be science.

If you agree with Sarah Palin's assessment of Bill Nye I strongly suggest you seek help: a psychiatrist, a minister, or Scientology auditor.

Sarah Palin saying that Bill Nye is as much a scientist as she is, is so incredibly disrespectful when you consider the the comparison.

Sarah Palin, Communications major, says she's as much of a scientist as Bill Nye, mechanical engineering major.
Gonna disagree on that.

What do you think of Sarah’s comments about Bill, HollywoodLifers? Do you agree with her, or do you totally think he’s a scientist?
