Stephen Hawking Crushed Donald Trump And His Supporters In One Sentence

By

We here at Elite Daily seem to really love a good hot take on Donald Trump.

We've written before about women taking down Donald Trump using his own sexist quotes, shared what other countries think about the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, blogged about Chelsea Handler's message on the real estate magnate and, of course, featured John Oliver's epic episode dedicated to the man with the "big hands."

But, Trump's latest critic may be our favorite one yet.

In a recent interview with CNN affiliate ITV, legendary scientist Stephen Hawking was asked to explain why someone like Donald Trump would have such a meteoric rise to political fame.

However, the most brilliant mind living couldn't find an answer.

He simply stated, "I can't," adding,

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

Here are a few appropriate reactions to this comment:

However, believe it or not, Hawking still thinks there is one thing worse than Donald Trump.

Hawking added in his interview, he believes climate change is the single biggest threat facing all of humanity. He says,

A more immediate danger is runaway climate change. A rise in ocean temperature would melt the ice-caps, and cause a release of large amounts of carbon dioxide from the ocean floor. Both effects could make our climate like that of Venus, with a temperature of 250 degrees.

So remember to reduce, reuse, recycle and, according to Hawking, don't vote for Trump.
