You aren’t Galileo. Trump pulls his support from the uneducated masses for a reason. He is vert publicly anti-intellectualism , and very much fire from hip gut reaction.

There hasn’t been a time in history when the angry mob with pitchforks was right and the universities, scientists, and academics were wrong.
It hasn’t ever been the case.
