So how do you explain Trump’s continued popularity? Perhaps the physicist can shed some light on the situation?
“I can’t,” Stephen Hawking said, after being asked in a interview with CNN affiliate ITV to explain Trump’s unprecedented political ascension.
For someone who has the ability to explain the unexplainable, this observation is a bit disappointing. However, the (arguably) smartest person on Earth did go on to offer his personal take on the man:
“He is a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator.”
Trump has yet to comment, but don't be surprised if there’s a tweet storm a’ brewin’.
