Stephen Fry uses psychology to take down Donald Trump
Ever wondered what drives Donald Trump’s decisions? Or what makes some people support his often controversial policies?
Well, Stephen Fry may have the answer. In the animated video above created by Pindex, Fry talks through things like cognitive bias, and uses facts to highlight just how ridiculous some of Trump’s priorities are.
“When Trump raises fear of immigrant terrorists,” says Fry. “Keep in mind that since 9/11, no one has died in a terrorist attack by immigrants from the countries he wants to ban.”
Meanwhile, Fry explains, Trump has slashed the Environmental Protection Agency budget even though air pollution is responsible for 200,000 early deaths in the U.S.
“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance,” Fry finishes. “It is the illusion of knowledge.”
