Is that Republican strategist Noelle Nikpour serious? I swear that she's a deadpan satirist in hiding! This is one of the most disappointing strategies of the Republican candidates -- to attack science and scientists. Makes me sad to hear the Republican candidates show such anger and bitterness toward academia. This is a hilarious take on the issue. Thanks for sharing!
Sure, glad you enjoyed the clip. It would be great if we could see greater respect for science from members of both political parties.
