The Trump Curse: Stephen Hawking Called Trump A Demagogue; Now He’s Dead

Stephen Hawking, the man who famously battled ALS since his 20’s and was the mind behind breakthrough theories in science, has died at the age of 76. Though he had managed to live a long life despite his debilitating disease, his death comes as a shock to us all. But there’s something else about this death that shouldn’t really come as a surprise; he was yet another victim of the Trump curse. 

During an interview with a CNN affiliate in Britan, Hawking said when he was asked to account for Donald Trump’s political rise, “I can’t. He is a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator.” A demagogue refers to a leader who makes use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises in order to gain power. Not only did he mock Trump, but he scoffed at the majority of American’s who voted for him.

Sticking by his statements, he moved on to other topics such as his support for the European Union.


“Gone are the days we could stand on our own, against the world. We need to be part of a larger group of nations, both for our security, and our trade.”

Though his liberalism was shown more brightly than before, his negative statements against Trump would haunt him for the remainder of his days. 

The Trump curse is almost more than coincidence or a silly meme at this point; Rick Ross, Lindsey Vonn, and now Stephen Hawking have paid hefty prices for speaking out against Trump. Perhaps one’s logical response might be, “He was old, he had ALS. This was going to happen whether he supported Donald Trump or not.” True, but the fact of the matter is he didn’t support Trump, and tonight he met his demise. 

The list of people and businesses that were once immovable empires and are now facing the repercussions of their hatred towards Trump is growing at an alarming rate. Perhaps liberals should practice what they preach regarding hate speech; their very lives may depend on it.
