How many generations are we away from full on Idiocracy?

Have you seen the movie Idiocracy?

A quick synopsis (from Wikipedia)

In 2005, average in every way private Joe Bowers (Luke Wilson) is selected to take part in a secret military experiment to put him in hibernation for a year along with a woman named Rita (Maya Rudolph). The slumbering duo is forgotten when the base they are stored on is closed down and are left in stasis until 2505. When they finally wake up, they discover the average intelligence of humans has decreased so much that Joe is now the smartest man in the world.

So here is this man, who in 2005 is just an average slacker, but in 2505, is now the smartest man due to a poor trend in evolution. Basically, all the smart people end up having fewer and fewer kids and the unintelligent populate the earth to the point that it is not longer valued to be intelligent and the dumb inherit the earth.

Which brings me to this photo from the White House last week

How has a man with 5 kids with 3 different wives somehow become more ideal than a black man with a solid core of his family?

How does Trump seem prouder to meet with people like Ted Nugent, Sarah Palin, and Kid Rock then leaders from the free world?

Where does this path lead?

The man behind the 2006 cult sci-fi film “Idiocracy” is lamenting that his fictional movie appears to have become reality.

“I never expected #idiocracy to become a documentary,” tweeted screenwriter Etan Cohen in an apparent jab at the 2016 presidential race
