Astrophysicist and all-around smart dude Neil deGrasse Tyson says he wants to use an unusual greeting when he meets “President-elect” Donald Trump.
“When I meet President Trump, I may first grab his crotch — to get his attention — then discuss Science with him,” Tyson tweeted Friday afternoon.

Tyson was obviously referring to the leaked Access Hollywood tape from 2005 in which Trump described grabbing women “by the p—y” without their consent, among other lewd remarks about women.
Tyson appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” the day after Trump was elected, he said he wants to “make America smart again.”
“Let me just say, I think we have a four-year mission now,” Tyson said. “I think what we need to do, let us together, make America smart again.”
