Commentator Erin Burnett Says China is Our Greatest Friend for Poisoning Our Food and Making Toxic Toys

Comments Off

It’s high time the American public speaks up and let’s the media know that we will no longer stand for programming that contains outrageous, shock commentary that is devoid of reason and simply designed to draw attention to the commentator. Ann Coulter is a perfect example. The more outrageous her statements, the more attention she gets. Recently, a CNBC bimbo commentator said that China “is our greatest friend” for producing poisonous foods and toys made with toxic lead paint. Her actual statement was:

“[I]f China were to revalue its currency or China is to start making, say, toys that don’t have lead in them or food that isn’t poisonous, their costs of production are going to go up, and that means prices at Wal-Mart here in the United States are going to go up, too. So I would say China is our greatest friend right now.”
Erin Burnett, host of CNBC’s Squawk on the Streets and Street Signs on Hardball.

Lead paint can cause permanent brain damage and even death. How can any responsible commentator call China our greates friend for manufacturing toys for toddlers containing lead paint?
