Because bullying.

Thanks for posting this, Matt. I keep forgetting to check dilbert.com. Scott Adams is making A LOT OF SENSE in this election cycle.

What amount of bullying is necessary to move him over to Jill Stein?

Matt Franko said...

I think there is a lot of fanatical type activity in this Bob where people want to be seen rooting for the eventual winner so Stein looks like she doesn't have a chance so people look at it as just the 2 Trump or Hillary...

This is probably what is going on with the polls too....

Too bad Adams failed to see Trump's bullying.

I stand corrected. Now Adams admits that Trump is a bully.

Just to make sure, I checked. In "The Bully Party" (Oct. 25) he indeed states, "I endorse Donald Trump for President of the United States because I oppose bullying in all its forms." In that same post he does not claim that Clinton herself is a bully, but that some of her supporters are bullying.

In the next post, "Watch the Persuasion Battle" (Oct. 26) he says this: "Yes, Trump is a bully, but he’s offering to provide that service on behalf of the country. When leaders do it, we call it leadership." So, in fact, Adams does not oppose bullying in all its forms. He endorses bullying by Trump and calls it leadership.

True is not alone.

I was listening to an NPR broadcast this afternoon on the radio while driving and a Sanders supporter reported she felt bullied by Clinton supporters. She reported that many of her fellow Sanders supports had switched their party affiliation to Green but she was sticking with the Democratic Party, although she was put off by the establishment. She said that the establishment is out of touch with young people and was sending the wrong signals about priorities.

This could be a problem with the Clinton faction of the party now and after the election, whoever wins.

Bill he has been flip-flopping for the whole campaign season...

(Also thinks we're "out of money!" too...)

Dear Matt,

Adams appears to have been flip-flopping. Remember, he is a trained hypnotist. So am I. It is apparent to me that he has been an apologist for Trump all along. He wants to hide that fact to make his propaganda more effective. I do think that when he says that bullying by Trump is leadership, he means it. Many kids admire schoolyard bullies, and I think that Adams is one of those people who admire bullies. BTW, I am not surprised that he thinks that we are out of money. He studied economics.
