Hawkings and Trump

Stephen Hawking, 74, is one of the smartest men in the world—and even though the theoretical physicist is capable of explaining some of the biggest mysterious of the universe, when it comes to the Donald Trump’s shocking political rise, he is lost just as any of us.

Stephen Hawking told UK’s ITV he cannot explain how come Trump is where he is today on the American political landscape.

But the professor wasn’t totally clueless, he said Trump is “a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator.” That’s exactly what Trump is–an indication that he’s not only the problem—the American Republican electorates are equally “insane.”
