‘Dilbert’ creator makes a sobering case against Hillary few have considered

Dilbert creator Scott Adams has become quite the political pundit of late. Having first endorsed Hillary Clinton “for his own safety,” Adams now endorses Donald Trump because of, among other reasons, the Republican nominee’s superior health and persuasion skills.

And on Monday, the UC Berkeley MBA graduate turned cartoonist blogged about yet another reason for supporting Trump many people may not have considered – sobriety.

Stating the fact that most people accept social drinking in our presidential candidates because most of us “consider it normal behavior and socially acceptable,” Adams laid out his case as to why the person in charge of the nuclear arsenal should be sober 24/7.

“We know alcohol impairs judgment,” Adams writes. “And a president is on-call for emergencies 24-hours a day. Alcohol plus life-and-death decisions is a dangerous combination.”

In most presidential elections, voters have a choice of one social drinker or the other social drinker. Risk-wise, that’s a tie. But this election features a candidate who is known to like her alcohol versus a candidate who has reportedly never had a drink, an illegal drug, or a cigarette. And that means alcohol can be considered in the risk assessment.

I would argue that alcohol consumption is the biggest risk differential in this election. We’re just blind to that risk because alcohol is socially acceptable. But even in your own life, you see alcohol being the force behind unwanted pregnancies, drunk driving, bar fights, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, and just about every bad decision you’ve ever made. If we humans were even a little bit objective we would never select a leader who is likely to be impaired by alcohol several hours per week, including the workday. (Allegedly.)

The Dilbert creator even goes on to provide some evidence that (allegedly) drunk Hillary might not be the best choice:

And this video, where some believe Clinton looks drunk:

And, to get a bit more concrete as far as proof goes, this Wikileaks email.

And to top it all off, a basic Google search of pictures of Hillary social drinking.

Compare that to the very sober Donald Trump, and it’s not hard to figure out which one should be in charge of the nuclear codes!
