Trump will make America stupid, tweet-rages DeGrasse Tyson

The president hasn't yet made himself everyone's favorite.

Indeed, when his 2018 budget was announced last week, many saw cuts to arts funding, education, health and even Meals On Wheels and gasped.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson is one of those left unimpressed.

In a storm of tweets on Sunday, the astrophysicist offered his own grim criticism of Donald Trump's budget. To lighten the mood, he made use of the president's most famous campaign slogan.

10. Putin and Betsy de Vos will make American Science great again. It's true.

 

Betsy de Vos will find brilliant solutions to teach all kids in a great way.

Under constant surveillance of Uncle Vlad, I promise.

Fantastic education. The best. Believe me.

I submitted a form on the Star Talk website to go into the drawing for tickets, and almost a year letter, I got notified that my name was drawn! It was awesome!!!

He is so awesome in a small group setting! He asked each of us questions and really conversed with us, not just a meet and greet line. The staff there all ADORE him too! They said he is the best boss ever!

22. We need people like him to run for Congress.

Yeah, I know, it's not what he wants to do and not what he was trained for. But we need people who see the Big Picture...who understand how the pieces go together, even the stupid ones that keep wanting to be on the damned floor.

If Meryl Streep and Ellen Degeneres or Jon Stewart were on the committee for education, do you think for a short minute there WOULDNT be enough money for scholastic and community arts programs?

Neither do I.

33. A population that is weak, sick, uneducated, and afraid of each other

is very easy to control.

Liberals want our population to be healthy, educated, and confident. Conservatives don't do well under those conditions.

Find one near you. This is part of "takin' it to the streets" -- numbers of people in towns and cities all over the country.

If the amount of enthusiasm this March has generated is any indication the turnout will be huge.
