'Sick in the Head': Hilton Blasts Alex Jones for Battle With Sandy Hook Families
Jones reportedly seeks $100,000 from victim's family.
Steve Hilton blasted conspiracy theorist Alex Jones over his continuing legal battle with the families of children killed in the Sandy Hook school shooting.
In one of several defamation lawsuits against Jones, the parents of six-year-old Noah Pozner say they have had to move seven times due to harassment and threats motivated by conspiracy theories put forth by Jones and others about the 2012 massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.
According to the New York Times, Jones has since counter-sued, seeking more than $100,000 for his legal costs and arguing that the Pozners' lawsuit should be dismissed on free speech grounds.
Jones has suggested to his millions of listeners and viewers that the Sandy Hook attack was staged - using crisis actors - by the government in order to impose new gun control laws. Online conspiracy theorists have harassed the victims' families, even claiming their children did not die in the attack.
Reacting on "America's Newsroom," Steve Hilton called Jones' claims "sick" for his claims.
"He's got the right [to say what he wants], but you also have to ask what sort of person is he? ... What is the matter with this person? It's really hard for me to understand how anyone can be so sick in the head as to behave like this and to keep going with it year after year," he said.
