There are a lot of doctors and scientists in this country who have and who will vote for Trump. Not sure why this is news (Well, it is Yahoo News so I guess that makes sense). It reminds me of when some labor union throws its support behind the Democrat candidate, while many rank and file members vote Republican. Maybe the OP is trying to show that all people of science reject Trump. Nope.

it's like virtue signalling... but it's intelligence signalling.

'...hi, look at me, I'm smarter than you...'

just an evolutionary step of 'mean girls'.

By that logic, does a Trump endorsement constitute “stupid signaling?” :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

some might say that. matter of fact, I'm betting there are more than a few on this forum that, if feet held to the fire, would say that. perhaps most wouldn't even need 'the fire'.

Trump is on record saying he 'likes the poorly educated'.

Is that why Taylor Swift's endorsement of Biden is so important to you?

I wonder how she'd feel if Biden did some deep sniffing of her hair.......
