Dilbert Creator Scott Adams on Donald Trump's "Linguistic Kill Shots"

Justin Monticello & Zach Weissmueller
Reason Magazine
October 6, 2015

Quote:
Donald Trump has a way with words--and with people. Yet despite his popularity, he has been a mystery to the media, which have mostly derided his campaign as consisting of nothing more than random insults and ignorant bluster.

Scott Adams, prolific author, blogger, and creator of the massively popular comic strip Dilbert, has a different theory. He tells Reason TV's Zach Weissmueller that the media are being trolled by a skilled manipulator, or in Adams's parlance, a Master Wizard. So exquisite does Adams believe Trump's skills to be that he predicts The Donald will go on to win the presidency.

Donald Trump calls himself a problem solver. But I think he creates a lot more problems than he solves.

The only problem he solves is what not to do. The anti problem solver.

True, just do the opposite of what Donald Trump says.

I generally find Reason to be a laughably inept pseudo-journal, but sometimes their content is worth consideration. Adams's analysis is deeper than one might expect, and should really be a focus of discussion. Trump is such a self-promoting ass that his candidacy seems pyrrhic, yet... He's still there. This is a good answer to why.

I still think that Trump's popularity among the Republicans shows that the republicans are racist, bigoted and xenophobic.

I guess that what really bothers me is how many of them are exactly that. Polls show Donald Trump at 23.3 and he has said some pretty racist things. But what's worse is that Dr. Ben Carson is sitting there with 17.2, and he is just Donald Trump on quaaludes. Between them they have over 40, which sure makes it look like a pretty high percentage of GOPeers love them some racist talk and believe that what this country needs is more inept politicians.
