Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant men alive and Britain’s leading cosmologist and physicist has had enough of Captain Orange’s climate denial bullsh*t and he is letting the world know. Speaking with Piers Morgan (BLECH) during an interview with Good Morning Britain on Monday morning, Hawking was asked his view of Trump’s presidency and his response was not kind:
Trump was selected by people who felt disenfranchised by the governing elite and the revolt against globalization. His priority will be to satisfy this electorate who are neither liberal nor that well-informed. We have already seen this in the promise to build a wall along the Mexican border and the sanction of two oil pipelines and the appointment to the Environment Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, a man who does not believe carbon dioxide causes climate change. This appointment pleases the coal industry and miners who voted for Trump.

Piers, always the Trump cheerleader, asked the professor if the reaction to Trump’s election is justified and Hawking said maybe, but “it represents a definite swing to a right-wing, more authoritarian approach” and he went on to say that he feels like he cannot visit the U.S. because of the Butternut Bigot:
I would like to visit again and to talk to other scientists, but I fear that I may not be welcome.
Sadly, he may be right. In Trump’s America, nobody is welcome if they disagree with him. Hell, the bombastic (alleged) billionaire regularly attacks Americans, the very people he is supposed to be representing, so he most certainly wouldn’t be pleased with a “foreigner” coming here who doesn’t like him. Piers, of course, denied this and then said he would probably see America’s Biggest Mistake soon (Piers probably has an appointment to lick his ass) and asked if Professor Hawking had any message he’d like to relay to him. The professor’s response was perfect:
He should replace Scott Pruitt at the Environment Protection Agency. Climate change is one of the great dangers we face, and it’s one we can prevent. It affects America badly, so tackling it should win votes for his second term. God forbid.
God forbid, indeed.
The thought of Trump getting four more years to destroy the progress this country has made in the last six decades is unfathomable. It’s only been eight weeks since he stood in front of his record inauguration crowds (PERIOD) and took an oath to protect this country and he has done the exact opposite–especially when it comes to climate change.
The new president thinks climate change was a hoax made up by the Chinese government for feck sake and has erased all mention of it from government websites. He appointed an anti-global warming advocate to run the EPA and put forth a budget that would decimate the agency. It is terrifying and even Hawking recognizes that.
Unfortunately, Putin’s Puppet will not take the professor’s advice, because he genuinely believes he is the smartest man to ever walk the Earth.
