The Donald Trump campaign is such an aberration that even one of the smartest men on the planet cannot understand it.

Courtesy of CNN:  

As one of the world's most renowned scientists, Stephen Hawking is regularly called on to help explain the universe's more mysterious phenomena. 

But asked to account for Donald Trump's political rise Tuesday, the British theoretical physicist was stumped. 

"I can't," Hawking told CNN affiliate ITV's "Good Morning Britain" program. 

"He is a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator."

Stephen Hawking has the kind of intellect that works through several complicated mathematical equations before breakfast, and who has helped human kind to gain an understanding of the universe that that we never had before, and yet he is completely unable to explain how a creature like Donald Trump could win the GOP nomination for President.

Well I think the answer is simply that there are a vast number of Americans who cannot even spell the word "equation" much less solve one, and whose understanding of the universe is contained in a book written a few thousand years ago by superstitious desert dwellers.

People like that are easily manipulated into believing just about anything, even that an arrogant egomaniac would ever put the needs of the country or the American people before his own all encompassing need for wealth and power.

The problem with Stephen Hawking is that he is so smart he simply cannot fathom the stupidity of the conservative American voter.

    The list of donations. Trump repeated that he personally gave one million to MC-LEF, a rush limpbaugh foundation. Sweet. Transparent, yes. If the press had a back bone they would have connected this HUGE dot along with the HUGE lease regarding the Old Post Office trump redo Who? I am sure in a small circle that mr trump is a great friend. But he will not be a good president of the usa because he is an ass, rude, crude and extreme narcissist.

  2. Hawking shouldn't waste energy thinking about it.

    Trump comes from a fever swamp of Americans who think reality television---- is real, our President isn't an American and Texas was targeted to be taken over by the U.S. government.

    There is only one true reason for the Trump phenomena though; his supporters are truly, hands down, drooling, idiots.

      That's why Drumpf "loves" the poorly educated.

    Remember when Sarah Palin confused Stephen Hawking with Richard Dawkins?

    1. Good times.
      When we thought she was as bad as it gets.

    Mr Hawkins knows about the last effort comical French twist campaign to occupy the 3rd slot and the well planned well executed, HUGE takeover of America by ______ yes. He knows about the strategy. He knows about the tripe, bribes, threats, payoffs. He knows about the players. He knows that it is better to be honest and real, than fake and stuck starring in a fake reality show.

    I just read an article that says "Republican" Senator John "America First" McCain is feeling the Bern. (Anybody surprised)

    "I am just beginning to feel the Bern," McCain said, chuckling. "Go Bernie, go. He is fighting a valiant fight and we are all behind him."

    LOL AGAIN. Isn't this the 2008 presidential loser who picked dimwitted beauty pageant loser Sarah Palin to be his vice-president? He put a dumbass loser beauty pageant contestant an old man's heartbeat away from the Nuclear Button!

    Now "Republican" Senator McCain is rooting for Bernie Sanders. Is that McCain's way of saying he hopes Sanders becomes the Democrat nominee because that's the only way the Republicans has a chance at the presidency?

    Is this McCain's way of showing his loyalty to the Republican Party without showing his loyalty to the man who called McCain a loser because as an American soldier he was a P.O.W.?

    Lowest common denominator, indeed. Visit any pro-Trump site and read comments to verify.

    I'm still giggling over David French myself.

    So now Hawking is next in line to be mocked by Hair Drumpf. He did such a great job with the disabled reporter, imagine his performance with this man.

      I've wondered that myself. He can't let a slight go unanswered.

    2. Would he dare mock SH? You betcha! Just how will he do it? and how soon?

    Washington Times:
    Sen. Bernie Sanders picks up superdelegate vote in HawaiiHONOLULU (AP) -

    U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders has picked up a superdelegate vote in Hawaii, but he still faces a steep uphill battle in his quest to overtake Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.

    The state Democratic Party elected Sanders supporter Tim Vandeveer to serve as party chairman. Vandeveer said Tuesday he plans to vote for Sanders at the Democratic National Convention in July.1

    (ANYBODY SURPRISED that a Sanders Superdelegate is voting for Bernie Sanders at the DNC?)

    It takes 2,383 delegates to win the nomination. Clinton has 2,312 delegate votes so far, according to an Associated Press count. Sanders has 1,545 delegates so far.

    The meaner, the nastier, the more racist, the intolerant they are, the more the conservative population love them.

    America has a lot of racist, xenophobic, sexist and mean people. They love Trump because he's like them. So they have made him their leader.
    There. I solved a problem even Stephen Hawkins couldn't. Of course, just about every black and brown person in America could have told you all this. But I'm going to enjoy my minute anyway!

    Einstein was a genius, but he could hardly tie his own shoes. Hawking hasn't proved over the years that knows anything about politics.

    1. Anonymous1:48 PM

      What Hawking said is what we've heard from friends in France and Denmark. They think Americans have lost their minds.

    "He is a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator."

    Wanna bet that the vast majority of Trumpsters have no idea what either "demagogue" or "lowest common denominator" even mean?
    But take comfort, dear neighbours. As Winston Churchill said (and I paraphrase) "Americans, having tried everything else first, eventually do the right thing".

    Trump's last tweet last night was about watching him on Hannity. Today at about 6:15 Eastern time, he again felt the need to complain about how he's not being praised for the vets money and the media are out to get him. So, he wakes up and the first thing he feels a need to do, maybe even before using the bathroom, is to tweet a complaint.

      Trump may not have to use the bathroom,considering he seemingly has terminal diarrhea of the mouth.

    Ever heard of Dunning-Kruger? It explains all of this.

    Some things just can't be explained, I'm sure Hawkins is next on meind duruphs hate list and will have something to say about it any day now.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
