Trump has a TV... wow... I can't imagine even the most self-centered French president (Sarkozy???) going for that.
He's accused Hillary of being on drugs during the last debate too.
She looked the opposite of being on medical drugs of any kind during that debate; the most striking thing about her appearance was her calm demeanour in the face of so many slanderous (and sleazy) remarks about herself, her politics and her husband. What an amazingly cheap shot,..oh wait, it's getting a bit hard to feel truly surprised at anything Trump is saying these days.
And an excerpt from the protest, that as a chemistry student this worries me greatly. Actually feel dizzy just trying to wrap my head around it. http://www.timeslive.co.za/local/2016/10/14/UCT-student-upsets-Newton%E2%80%99s-apple-cart-with-her-demand-that-ScienceMustFall1
“So western modernity is the problem that decolonisation directly deals with. It’s to say that we are going to decolonise by having knowledge that is produced by us‚ that speaks to us and that is able to accommodate knowledge from our perspective.“Decolonising the science would mean doing away with it entirely and starting all over again to deal with how we respond to the environment and how we understand it.”
.....I don't even have words....This is like when those crazy Christians go declaring that science is a religion and its out to get them. :/As much as they love decrying science as some tool of Western Oppression they would happily still happily use the products it gave them and not want to go a moment without them.

Edit: For the record im a Christian (not a good one but still one) So even I recognize some of my own faith are out of their minds. Edit2: This reminds me abit of what Bill Nye once said that as of late we are getting an entire generation of people who are science illiterate. I guess we are seeing the first hints of it now
Yes indeed. The anti-science crackpots aren't restricted to the "Religious Right", there are a fair share of them on the Far Left too. Basically it all boils down to fact that they are selective in their facts; they will only believe those facts which "validate" their ideology, while rejecting others.
