The is the brain behind the Dilbert's, the dystopian comic strip on working life. A friend shared this on Facebook and I thought he would have succeeded in giving intellectual ballast to intellectually gullible Republicans. They number in the millions. (see his post)
I think he is crediting Trump with too much tactical sense than his track record suggest he is capable of. This is not like you are meeting Zhuge Liang in new engagements and trying to figure out the outcome.
What Scott Adams has done is using his creative mind to concoct a white conspiracy. Easy to do on hindsight but useless for forecasting what Trump would do next. It is like trading black boxes that were built on curve fitting historical data. They are often useless without luck forecasting what is coming next and you would need a new curve fit to join up the new data coming. That's right, it could explain the past but not forecast the future. People are making up explanations for Trump as he goes along which even he would be impressed. He might even be following Adams blog for what to do next. Closer to reality I think the evil genius behind Trump is Steve Bannon who has recently been elevated as a principal member of the NSC.
So is it the Hitler's filter or Persuasion filter in play here? Neither. Such filters are for lazy or less smart people who have outsourced their thinking to others.
What I know and handed us down the ages is this: Character is destiny and Trump has none.
Just before I could copy and paste from my OneNote I got yet another Trumpian joke.
MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGHAn Israeli doctor says: "In Israel, medicine is so advanced that we cut off a man's liver put them on another man, and in 6 weeks, he is looking for work."The German doctor says: "That's nothing, in Germany we take part of a brain, put it in another man, and in 4 weeks he is looking for work."The Russian doctor says: "Gentlemen, we take half a heart from a man, put it in another's chest, and in 2 weeks he is looking for work."The American doctor laughs: "You all are behind us. About a week ago, we took a man with no brains, no heart, and no liver and made him President.Now, the whole country is looking for work!"Share with your friends, don't laugh alone 😜😜😜
Remember to always take Trump seriously but never literally. Mexico is learning quite quickly how to do that and I bet the Chinese are observing and learning quickly.
Trump should surround himself with more advisers with medical backgrounds. At least he will learn that if you can't make things better, don't make them worse. He is too stupid to realize that in trying to drain the swamp he will set the house on fire. He never understood the inseparable good and bad mixing of the swamp. Even the almighty God himself does not drain the swamp until the End of Time. Who the hell do you think you are Mr. Trump?
