Neil DeGrasse Tyson To Bill Maher : The Education System Is to Blame For Donald Trump



deGrasse Tyson then jumped in and went on a rant over Trump supporters and the educational system he claims is responsible for them.


“As an educator I care about the population and the electorate,” he explained. “And all this attention going to complain about Donald Trump. You’re not really complaining about Donald Trump, there’s a major portion of the electorate who likes him, and so they are your obvious object of your ire. Then shouldn’t you be looking at the educational system that somehow allows people to not think about data, to not think about what is or is not true in this world?”

“You can knock Trump out of the contest and the population that supports him will just wait for the next one to rise up and you have to beat the next one over the head!”

Muhammad Ali Knocked Trump’s Muslim Ban Before He Died

The late boxing legend, who passed away at 74, had strong words for Trump’s proposed Muslim ban. And Trump even once questioned whether America had Muslim sports heroes.

In a public statement titled, “Presidential Candidates Proposing to Ban Muslim Immigration to the United States,” the boxing legend reiterated his decades-long stance that Islam was a religion of peace, and that people, in this case Trump, should not be exploiting it for political points.

“We as Muslims have to stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda,” Ali said. “They have alienated many from learning about Islam. True Muslims know or should know that it goes against our religion to try and force Islam on anybody.”

The sports and cultural icon further spoke out about how terrorists like those in Paris and San Bernardino have “perverted” the public’s views of Islam.

“Speaking as someone who has never been accused of political correctness, I believe that our political leaders should use their position to bring understanding about the religion of Islam and clarify that these misguided murderers have perverted people’s views on what Islam really is,” he said.

“I am a Muslim and there is nothing Islamic about killing innocent people in Paris, San Bernardino, or anywhere else in the world. True Muslims know that the ruthless violence of so called Islamic Jihadists goes against the very tenets of our religion.”

Trump, gotcha

TRUMP:
In Crooked Hillary's telepromter speech yesterday,

Hillary on Trump’s Attacks on Judge: Trump Is ‘Of German Heritage, What Does That Mean?’

Trump's tell is when he looks into the camera, utterly terrified


Hillary Clinton decided to give Donald Trump a taste of his own medicine with a curious comment in response to his attacking of a Hispanic judge for supposedly harboring bias against him:

This whole exchange is really worth the read on the Trump U judge - with @jaketapper and Trump.

Just In Time: Dick Morris is now the chief political correspondent for the National Enquirer

NEW YORK, June 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The National ENQUIRER today announced that renowned Author and Political Commentator Dick Morris would be joining the magazine in the role of Chief Political Commentator & Correspondent. The appointment of Morris to the editorial team further establishes The ENQUIRER as one of the leading voices of this political season.

"Adding Dick Morris to one of the best editorial teams in the industry underscores our commitment to investigative journalism," said AMI Chief Content Officer and Editor In Chief of the ENQUIRER Dylan Howard. "He greatly values our commitment to delivering the kind of quality content that our readers have come to trust us for and, like The ENQUIRER, has the guts to publish stories other media won't touch."

In addition to providing exclusive news and analysis for the weekly print edition of The National ENQUIRER, Morris will also provide regular columns and video commentary for NationalEnquirer.com. The ENQUIRER's website has seen a surge into traffic too. In the most recent MPA Magazine Media 360° Brand Audience Report for April, The ENQUIRER ranked third in Mobile Web growth behind American Media, Inc.'s STAR, with an incredible 230% growth.

"The National Enquirer is one of the few journalistic outlets that has the courage to publish the truth," said Mr. Morris. "As this critical election approaches, I am thrilled to have a perch from which to tell the unvarnished truth, particularly about Hillary Clinton -- facts other publications just don't print because it doesn't fit."

Ashamed, but clinging to their corrupt candidate, the Aryan Warrior, anyway.

I'm not sure if anything captures the weirdness and moral vacuum of this campaign better than this. Today, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said that divisive, racially charged rhetoric like Donald Trump's led to last year's horrific mass killing at an African-American church in Charleston. That's quite a statement. (The Justice Department recently announced it will seek the death penalty against Dylann Roof, the 22 year old who has been charged with the crime.) She wishes Trump would be more civil. And yet, as our Trump Endorsement Scorecard shows, Haley, like virtually every other elected Republican in the country, says she will support Trump as the nominee of her party
