‘Dilbert’ creator predicts Trump victory; how he ‘b*tch-slapped’ the GOP establishment

DilbertCount the creator of the world-famous Dilbert cartoons as someone else who believes Donald Trump will be the next president.

Scott Adams, who is not only the creator of “Dilbert” but a trained hypnotist, wrote in a blog post titled “Clown Genius” that Trump is employing subtle persuasion on the American people.

While it’s clear from his essay that Adams is no fan of Trump, he admits to a sort of grudging admiration. Noting that Trump literally wrote a book on the power of persuasion called “The Art of the Deal,” Adams writes that Trump has consistently won past the controversies his campaign has engendered by playing his cards exactly right.

The dust-up with Fox News, for instance, has put Trump in a stronger position than any GOP candidate when it comes to the cable network widely perceived as “conservative,” according to Adams.

And when Trump was asked on CNN about a National Review column that labeled him a “whiner,”  Adams wrote, Trump embraced the term and called it a measure of his willingness to win.

Moreover, Adams says, Trump has owned the GOP field and will carry his momentum and persuasion into a successful bid for the White House.

If you’re keeping score, in the past month Trump has bitch-slapped the entire Republican Party, redefined our expectations of politics, focused the national discussion on immigration, proposed the only new idea for handling ISIS, and taken functional control of FOX News. And I don’t think he put much effort into it. Imagine what he could do if he gave up golf.

As far as I can tell, Trump’s “crazy talk” is always in the correct direction for a skilled persuader. When Trump sets an “anchor” in your mind, it is never random. And it seems to work every time.

Now that Trump owns FOX, and I see how well his anchor trick works with the public, I’m going to predict he will be our next president. I think he will move to the center on social issues (already happening) and win against Clinton in a tight election.

It’s not a very admiring essay, but Trump is likely to take it as a compliment.
