Stephen Hawking’s description of Donald Trump is perfect

T.jpeg

Stephen Hawking is used to surveying empty holes of nothingness - so it should come as no surprise that the eminent scientist has just had his say on presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Asked by Good Morning Britain what he thought of the bewigged Republican’s rise to power, Hawking said: “I can’t”, adding, “He is a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator."

Magnificent. It really shouldn’t take the cleverest human on the planet to tell us what we were all thinking about the dumbest, but the fact the professor was even drawn into wasting his vowels on this celebrity politician highlights just how alarmingly real his candidacy is.

Not done there, Hawking also had his say on Britain’s forthcoming EU vote, warning the nation would face a recession if Brexit were to happen:

 “Gone are the days when we could stand on our own, against the world. We need to be part of a larger group of nations, both for our security and our trade. The possibility of our leaving the EU has already led to a sharp fall in the pound, because the markets judge that it will damage our economy.

Hawking also stated that a move away from the EU might also thwart the discovery of the next great scientist: “There are two obvious reasons why we should stay in. The first is that it promotes the mobility of people. Students can come here from EU countries to study, and our students can go to other EU universities. More importantly, at the level of research, the exchange of people enables skills to transfer more quickly, and brings new people with different ideas, derived from their different backgrounds."
