Neil deGrasse Tyson is the AOC of astrophysicists.

He’s celebrated as some kind of great genius in his field, and yet he has an uncanny ability to embarrass himself in very public spaces.

And, like AOC, he’s actually a pretty rotten person when you get to know him:

 

Try and control your enthusiasm, Neil. We know the prospects of Donald Trump losing and his supporters dying from COVID19 are too tantalizing to not get excited about, but try.

He should, though. He really should.

Maybe because it’s demented.

Neil seems to be under the impression that the popular vote determines the election winner and also Trump supporters deserve to die. Parents, don’t let your kids learn from educators like Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of those people.
