Stephen Hawking might be one of the smart people alive but he is confused about some of the more mundane issues. He has previously stated that “Women are the biggest mystery in the universe”. Now the theoretical physicist says the Republican presidential candidate’s success with voters remains a mystery.
As Buzzfeed notes:
On a lighter note, Hawking is also said to be a big fan of strip clubs. “He’s a man who lives within his brain and still manages to feel the overwhelming power of sex,” his pal Peter Stringfellow, who runs Stringfellows strip clubs, told The Independent. “Isn’t he the answer to people who attack the sexual side of our human-ness? They’re all charging at windmills, you know. It’s there.”
Hawking became a regular at Stringfellows strip club in London, and the proprietor recalls a hilarious run-in with the professor one night
“I went and introduced myself and said, ‘Mr. Hawking, it’s an honor to meet you. If you could spare a minute or two, I’d love to chat with you about the universe,’” Stringfellow recalled.
“Then I paused for a bit and joked, ‘Or would you rather look at the girls?’
“There was silence for a moment, and then he answered, ‘The Girls.’”
“I have seen Stephen Hawking at the club more than a handful of times,” a member said,according to the Huffington Post. “He arrives with an entourage of nurses and assistants. Last time I saw him, he was in the back ‘play area’ lying on a bed fully clothed with two naked women gyrating all over him.”
Now he is trying to tackle another issue – Donald Trump’s popularity. Hawking notes: “I can’t. He’s a demagogue who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator,” Hawking said.
A demagogue is “a political leader who tries to get support by making false claims and promises and using arguments based on emotion rather than reason.”
