Neil deGrasse Tyson just proved why he is the coolest and most fun scientist ever to live.
On Friday the expert tweeted how he would introduce himself to future President Donald Trump to “grab” his attention and focus the attention deficient billionaire on issues of science.
When I meet President Trump, I may first grab his crotch — to get his attention — then discuss Science with him.

Reactions from his followers were equally hilarious.

This was the best by far.

Predictably, not many Trump supporters got the joke. They immediately tossed their anti-PC badge of honor out the window to criticize Neil deGrasse Tyson’s tongue and cheek remark.
While it will never happen, its still hilarious imagining Neil deGrasse Tyson giving Trump a “hands on” science lesson.
