Peter Ward, a taxpayer-funded professor at the the University of Washington is claiming that Donald Trump's presidency will alter the human genome.
According to The Daily Caller, the professor offered his opinion in an article to Gizmodo titled “Can Superhuman Mutants Be Living Among Us”. He claims the United States will create an army of mutant “super soldiers” who don't “need to drink as much water”, sleep or “eat for five or six days”.
Is this supposed to be real or an X-Men fan-fiction?
“We’re finding more and more that, for instance, people who have gone through combat, or women who have been abused — when you have these horrendous episodes in life, it causes permanent change, which is then passed on to your kids,” Ward writes. “These are actual genetic shifts that are taking place within people.”
“On a larger scale, the amount of stress that Americans are going through now, because of Trump — there is going to be an evolutionary consequence,” he added.
