The alt-left revealed its secret weapon against Trump when they sent hundreds of Hawking holograms to Washington and other places. A Hawking hologram appeared on Capitol Hill and immediately sent Trumpcare into a black hole.
Hawking is also held to be responsible for an outbreak of Schrödinger cats at the White House. Melania Trump is at her wit’s end. “They are terrible” she said, “they are neither there, or not there, until you try to look at them, at which point they usually disappear. They are worse than Schrödinger Republicans.”
Hawking is famous for writing a book about time which sold more copies and was read by fewer people than any other physics book in history. Hawking believes that Trump is a time traveler who has come back from an apocalyptic future where zombies rule the earth. Hawking also believes that Trump is not alone and that other time travelers from a more primitive future include Boris Johnson, Jim Carrey, Lloyd Blankfein and Snoop Dog.
It is not Trump Bills going into Black Holes or Schrödinger Republicans that has people worried in Washington. It is the statement that recently emerged from Hawking’s 1980s speech synthesizer: “I regard Corbyn as a disaster”. Coming from the world’s most famous theoretical physicist and cosmologist, people assume that this is something that could threaten the existence of the universe. However, few people knew what a corbyn is, until it was explained by the Washington Post. A corbyn is produced when a neutrino is mated with a quark. The existence of a corbyn was considered to be just a theoretical possibility until the British produced one in a special apparatus known as a “Labourcongress”.
Hawking hates Trump, has criticised Trump’s policies, and told the Guardian that he would not be welcome in the US under Trump.
However, Trump responded to this on Twitter saying that Hawking’s ideas on physics were epistemologically unsound. According to Trump, Hawking’s ideas are unverifiable in principle and are, therefore, in contradiction to the tenets of Logical Empiricism. Basically, what we know comes from what Russell called Knowledge by Acquaintance, that is, from our own senses. Mathematics is an invention of the human mind, said Trump espousing the constructivist theory of mathematics, its there to help us understand our empirical experiences (see Gregory: Arithmetic and Reality). However, Hawking postulates time going backwards which is in direct contradiction to our immediate experience. In order to believe Hawking you would have to be, epistemologically, some sort of existential phenomenolist but also be a realist as far as the philosophy of mathematics is concerned. Which is nonsense, said Trump.
Private Tye believes Trump. If were are supposed to believe a theoretical physicist about politics why not believe a politician about theoretical physics?
The story from the Nation (25 March):
HONG KONG - Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has spoken to a Hong Kong audience by hologram, showcasing the growing reach of a technology which is making inroads into politics, entertainment and business. The British scientist appeared Friday before an audience of hundreds who cheered and snapped pictures with their phones as he discussed his career and answered questions about the possibility of life on other planets, the use of technology in education and the impact of Brexit on Britain.
The 75-year-old said the election of US President Donald Trump was one in a string of "right-wing successes" that would have grave implications for the future of scientific innovation and discovery.
"With Brexit and Trump... we are witnessing a global revolt against experts," he said, making his first appearance in Hong Kong since 2006.
The swing to the right has come at a time when the world is facing multiple environmental crises, from global warming to deforestation, he added.
"The answers to these problems will come from science and technology," he said.
