Scott Adams, the successful author and creator of the Dilbert comic strip, floored Bill Maher by predicting Trump’s primary win and explaining why he would surely win the presidency with his rhetorical tools of persuasion and branding his opposition such as “Lyin’ Ted” and “Crooked Hillary.”
Adams tells Maher (clip below), “When I saw Trump last summer displaying the tools of persuasion I thought, ‘Oh, my God, he’s not a crazy clown. Everything he’s doing, including his complete ignoring of the facts is persuasion perfection. And I called him to be the landslide winner in the general election last year.”
On Tuesday, Adams published a blog explaining what traits Clinton supporters have in common.
I’ve been trying to figure out what common trait binds Clinton supporters together. As far as I can tell, the most unifying characteristic is a willingness to bully in all its forms. Have a Trump sign in your lawn? They will steal it. If you have a Trump bumper sticker, they will deface your car. If you speak of Trump at work you could get fired. On social media, almost every message I get from a Clinton supporter is a bullying type of message…We know from Project Veritas that Clinton supporters tried to incite violence at Trump rallies. The media downplays it. We also know Clinton’s side hired paid trolls to bully online. You don’t hear much about that…
Case in point, the time-lapse video below titled, “Two Weeks of Trump [signs] in the Hood”:
Adams’ post concludes with him going all-in for Trump:
I endorse Donald Trump for President of the United States because I oppose bullying in all its forms.
I don’t defend Trump’s personal life. Neither Trump nor Clinton are role models for our children. Let’s call that a tie, at worst.
The bullies are welcome to drown in their own bile while those of us who want a better world do what we’ve been doing for hundreds of years: Work to make it better while others complain about how we’re doing it.
Today I put Trump’s odds of winning in a landslide back to 98%. Remember, I told you a few weeks ago that Trump couldn’t win unless “something changed.”
Something just changed.
Conservative commentator Steven Crowder sums it up well with:
“Can I get an amen?
Because he’s correct on all counts. The Democrats participate in projection. That is, they constantly rail on about sins they’re most guilty of committing. Racism, sexism, bigotry, intolerance. And in this case, bullying. The left loves to tell us how much they hate bullies… while inciting and condoning violence and intimidation toward people they disagree with: the right.”
