Jerry Seinfeld Thinks He Has Autism
In an interview with NBC Nightly News last night, Jerry Seinfeld told Brian Williams he “believes” he has autism which naturally made the whole Internet gasp because somehow this is Jenny McCarthy’s fault. It has to be:
“I think on a very drawn-out scale, I think I’m on the spectrum,” said Seinfeld. “Basic social engagement is really a struggle. I’m very literal, when people talk to me and they use expressions, sometimes I don’t know what they’re saying. But I don’t see it as– as dysfunctional. I just think of it as an alternate mindset.”
Of course, Jerry Seinfeld hasn’t actually seen a doctor or been diagnosed with autism, but I’m sure he took that into consideration before launching 18,000 mommy blogs about what it’s really like to live with someone who has autism that I’ll now have to see all over Facebook when I’m trying to judge people from high school or make clever observations about how much I love burritos. My time is a precious gift.
