Adams has actually not endorsed Trump. His readers love the bastard
Adams has actually not endorsed Trump. His readers love the bastard

Let’s get one thing out of the way: Scott Adams, the annoying libertarian MRA creator of Dilbert, is not on the Trump Train. He “disavowed” Trump back in February, if only to avoid the “splatter zone” of backlash to Trump’s popularity with white supremacists, even if Trump had disavowed them, sort of, maybe, sometimes, he’s not sure. Adams also thinks Trump’s “pro-life” position is unjustifiable, and that nobody without a womb gets a say on abortion. He’s also called Trump a “con man.” Oh, but there are things about Trump Adams admires, too — like maybe he’s not so much a con man as a “Master Persuader.”

Scott Adams also has some notoriously weird ideas about women and sex, and how America is a matriarchy and something something Red Pill, I guess.

So now, he’s aimed his powerful Thinking Parts at the question of attractiveness and power, and has Thoughts about “Power, Persuasion, and Attractiveness.” And he would just like his readers to know they think they are very attractive. That’s why he did what he readily admits is a completely meaningless Twitter poll, because he knows his readers “are mostly pro-Trump, and male”:

Ah, but here’s the really important insight:

These two surveys are statistically meaningless, but I’m willing to bet that a scientific poll of this type would show the same order of results, with Trump at the top. That doesn’t mean Trump supporters are actually more attractive. It just means you have been persuaded to think so, probably by a variety of factors.

We like his scientific rigor here. But now he wants you to do some thought experimenting: Imagine a typical male Trump supporter, and a typical male Hillary supporter. Do you think you can do that? Scott Adams will help you, just in case!

He’s wearing a red Trump hat and he’s being interviewed on camera by a reporter. Now hold whatever image you have in your head for that person. All you know is that he is male, a Trump supporter, and he is wearing a Trump hat. Hold that thought.

Now imagine a male Clinton supporter. He isn’t wearing a Trump hat, so fill in that person’s clothing in your mind. All you know is that he supports Clinton. He too is being interviewed by a reporter.

Then we get to the really important part of the thought experiment: Imagine the two next to each other. Are you imagining that? “Now here’s my question: If those two men were to get into a fight, who would win?” Oooh, ooh, we know! The Trump supporter would win, because he is Manly, or perhaps because he is more prone to violence, or because the Hillary supporter would start crying and wet his pants, because liberals are wimps.

Actually, Yr Dok Zoom is a Bernie supporter, and he would stare back at Scott Adams and ask why the fuck we’re supposed to be fighting. What’s my motivation here? Yr Dok Zoom is a Method thought experimenter. Then Yr Dok Zoom would demand a donation of twenty-seven dollars and ride away on his powerful imaginary Webley-Vickers motorcycle.

Now to Scott Adams’s brilliant manly analysis!

Most of you said the Trump supporter would win. That’s because you are reading this blog, and a lot of Trump supporters come here. But my educated guess is that persuasion is also at work. Trump’s language and imagery is all “big and beautiful and great.” His buildings are big and powerful. Trump is a big guy in a power suit wearing powerful clothing. He projects power, intentionally.

Clinton is more about fighting for the weaker members of society. Even her logo looks like a sign pointing to a hospital.

hillary logo

Oh, that is very deep! Or maybe it is meant to call to mind a helicopter landing pad! Adams has been pondering this quite a bit, and explains the deep evolutionary psychology at work here, as if evolutionary psychology were anything more than a pretend scientific framework for confirming ingrained cultural biases:

Attractiveness and power are correlated in our minds. Trump is creating a brand around power while Clinton’s brand is more about helping the disadvantaged of society. My best guess, as a trained persuader, is that each candidate’s branding leaks into your biased opinion of what the supporters of each candidate actually look like.

Look, Scott Adams is a trained persuader, and he knows this shit. Strangely, though, when we think of Trump supporters, we tend to get a mental image of angry white people screaming at and shoving a black lady as if she were trying to attend Little Rock High School in 1957:

photos-century-poc100

But maybe that’s just us. In any case, trained persuader Scott Adams wants to point out that all of this is just some bullshit mental noodling around:

Just to be clear, I doubt there is any real difference in the attractiveness of voters who support various candidates. My point is that people have been persuaded to think there is a difference.

There is no difference. You have been persuaded to think there’s a difference, and I have provided a whole lot of words about powerful Trump supporters and wimpy weak Hillary supporters, but there’s no real difference. Isn’t the world a funny old place when viewed through the eyes of a trained persuader?

We are at least persuaded that Scott Adams is capable of persuading many of his readers that he has deep thoughts about brain things. Also, how about those hot anime and furry chicks who dig Trump? Hubba Hubba.

    How many women consider Scott Adams attractive?

    • Mimihaha

      none. Not even Melpomene. She just likes his money.

    • natoslug

      NOT,K.

    • SDGeoff

      If he were sexxxy, Evan would have written the article. But he is very not sexxxy.

    • HazooToo

      Nope.

  • Mimihaha

    Wait, what? He wants Donald Trump to what?

  • Lizzietish81

    Well that makes a whole lot of no sense.

    • Painter of Goats

      Should appeal to Trump voters then.

  • BadKitty904

    So, the take-away here is that cartoons should be seen and cartoonists not heard.

      And far too close ro real…

  • Ryan Denniston

    Damn, Dilbert a casualty. Who would have thought?

  • Painter of Goats

    I find all the men on Wonkette to be more attractive than Trump supporters. And I don’t even know what they look like.

    • SDGeoff

      You too?

    • natoslug

      I’m tall, pasty (except for my currently sunburnt ears and farmer’s tanned forearms), and have a generally humanish shape.

      • Painter of Goats

        See, I knew you were attractive. In fact we could be twins!

        • Jonny On Maui

          Triplets, but I’m gonna do something about the tractor forearms and bronzed neck…

    • Lizzietish81

      Suttree is a very attractive man.

      He’s also mine.

    • Skwerl King

      I am short, fat, bald, poor, and for some reason women find me attractive. Must be my ascot.

    • Good_Gawd_Yall

      That’s because like most women, we like men who are intelligent and humorous and who support liberal causes! I would take any man on this site over any Trumpf supporter sight unseen. Pants optional.

      • baconzgood

        Seriously where are you women? I suspect you’re all “bots”. I haven’t been on a date in over 2 years and that girl became a lesbian after she dated me for 3 months.

        True story.

        • Jenny

          At the drinky things? I went to one a few years back.

            They never come to Pittsburgh :(

            Please come to the next Detroit one! (Although my husband won’t let me date, either.)

        • Painter of Goats

          My husband won’t let me date. Sorry.

        • The Witch of Endor

          Not knowing your age, I will say that you’re probably too young for me. Also too, I don’t date anymore as I’m a selfish bitch and like everything my way.

          • baconzgood

            Baconz is happy you think im younger. I’m a fine 40 year bottle of rye.

          • The Witch of Endor

            Remember I’m a granny, though a somewhat youngish granny.

          • The Witch of Endor

            While you were busy being born I was trying like hell to get my driver’s license. And you *are* a fine 40 year bottle of rye.

          • Billy Rubin

            It would be irresponsible not to speculate!

        • Jonny On Maui

          Do you turn guys too?

          • baconzgood

            I cant say for sure…

          • Jonny On Maui

            It’s okay. I don’t want to find out…

          • theCryptofishist

            Wait, wait, in a thought experiment, if we polled Wonksters, and Scott Adams walked by baconz, would he (SA) go gay for baconz?

        • Good_Gawd_Yall

          Aw baby, I’m sorry. I got my driver’s license when you were two. But I would totally go on a date with you and I promise I wouldn’t switch teams afterwards…..

          • baconzgood

            Ex Mrs Baconz was 10 years older than me. As for the lesbian thing I either think it’s because I was such a shitty lover she stopped dating men or I was so good she figured she couldn’t do better and switched teams.

          • Good_Gawd_Yall

            Oh, definitely the second thing!

          • baconzgood

            Pull the other one.

          • theCryptofishist

            It has bells on.

      • calliecallie

        I don’t think the men on wonkette wear pants. Didn’t that come up once already today?

    • Lascauxcaveman

      The good news is when I put a picture of my 1987 self into the “Which Celeb do you look most like?” website thingee, it came back with 1980’s Robbie Benson

      The bad news is the 2011 self came back Rick Moranis.

    “But my educated guess is that persuasion is also at work.” – That guess is not educated…it didn’t even make it out of preschool.

    “My point is that people have been persuaded to think there is a difference.” – persuaded by people who write the kind of shit you just did?

      Impossible. There’s no plausible scenario where this would actually happen.

      I’m picturing a scenario in which the douche bigot trips over his sneaker lace on his way to a table, spills his ginger ale on himself, and blurts out, “Yo, hos, what’s up?” then flees in terror, runs back to his mom’s basement, and types 10,000 words on his blog about how all the bitches were begging him to buy them drinks, but he wouldn’t, because whores. When he goes to bed he realizes his fly is open and his shirt was buttoned wrong.

    Scott Adams doesn’t like Trump but anything’s better than giving poor people food stamps and treating blacks and Muslims and Mexicans and gays like actual people, so he’ll “struggle with his conscience” or some shit like that and vote for Trump.

  • Angela Ruzzo

    Scott definitely has strange ideas about women, because if the women I know were asked such questions, they’d tell the person asking that it’s not of their frigging business.

  • chazmanr

    Social scientists take numerous classes on how to minimize bias and write effective surveys that will yield meaningful results. Adams’ poll violates most of the rules, as do most political polls. They don’t ask enough questions to see if the survey/poll is measuring what they think it is.

    This is a big RED FLAG that shows inherent bias in the poll:

    “Most of you said the Trump supporter would
    win. That’s because you are reading this blog, and a lot of Trump
    supporters come here.”

      Social “science”.
      Social science is about as much of a science as economics.

      • chazmanr

        Spoken like a complete and total moron.

        • h4rr4r

          Spoken like someone who demands sciences make useful and accurate predictions.
          If economics was a science, all economists would be rich. If social science were a science, we would have perfect predictions of social systems.

          I like sociology fine, but a science it is not.

          • chazmanr

            It is not a pure science in that you can replicate the exact results over and over again. However, that is only due to the unwieldy large number of variables and biases for which one needs to control. Properly done, social science is highly predictive and very accurate. Social science uses very similar methods to actual science.

          • h4rr4r

            I think we simply disagree on the level of accuracy and reproducibility we find acceptable.
            It is a useful tool I agree, however kinda soft for a science.

            Yeah, scott adams is a chucklehead, probably making cartoons cause he can’t hack the math to code.

          • chazmanr

            Well, again, I have taken enough college level “science” courses in physics and chemistry that I can see more similarities than differences. I have been trained in both the pure scientific method as well as the social scientific method.

          • h4rr4r

            I also have taken a fair bit of them.
            I just think it does a discredit to the hard science to lump economics and sociology in with them. They are a fair bit squisher.

          • theCryptofishist

            Yeah! Economics is squishy! I hate when people pretend it’s a hard science.

          • Latverian Diplomat

            If physics were a science, we’d have all the solutions to the Navier-Stokes equations.

            If chemistry were a science, we’d have a complete understanding of protein folding.

            If biology were a science, we’d have the cure for the Zika virus.

            Or maybe, all sciences struggle with problems involving complex systems?

            Nah, that would be too nuanced a view to be useful for amateur hour trolling.

          • h4rr4r

            Those things are nothing like what I am talking about.

            I do find it interesting that you consider any disagreement trolling. I bet you don’t do that in public.

            You are asking for answers, I am only asking for reproducibility and predictive value.

          • pstockholm

            Earthquake prediction?
            Meteorology?
            Quality of predictions is notoriously bad.
            Just to mention a couple of hard science areas that would seem to refute your point. I doubt you mean to say seismology and meteorology are not sciences.
            The effort to understand the world with a scientific approach is science. For appropriate sciences, accurate predictions (let’s not get into ‘useful’) are important. For other sciences, for example those studying complex systems, predictions at this point are not always the point.
            Sure there’s a lot of bullshit economics and sociology. Can be called out on a case by case basis, don’t need the sweeping generalizations.

          • h4rr4r

            I think lumping in all of meteorology with predicting the temperature for tomorrow is a bit imprecise.

    “Now here’s my question: If those two men were to get into a fight, who would win?”

    If they’re voters, then they should be grown-up and not getting into a fight in the first place. Really, what is with the wingnuts’ obsession with who can beat who up? Actual adults avoid fights; if you’ve been in an actual physical fight since high school, then there is probably something wrong with you.

    Oh, and since the average age of Trump supporters is about 75, I don’t think they’d have the advantage.

        Kevin Conroy Batman; but it doesn’t matter. Even Adam West Batman would win by pulling the Bat-Doofus-Repellent from his utility belt.

          He truly is the best of the many Batmen. Especially when Mark Hamill is along for the crazy ride.

          • data_ninja

            Absolutely. Kevin Conroy is the only one who can do both a good Batman AND Bruce Wayne. Michael Keaton? Good Bats, bad Bruce. Christian Bale? Bad Bats, Good Bruce. As for Clooney/Kilmer/Affleck… do I even need to go there?
            I’ll give Adam West credit for Bats & Bruce, only because “some days, you just can’t get rid of a bomb.”

          • Doug Langley

            For the animated series, they went through dozens and dozens of actors before finally stumbling on Conroy. For the 1978 Superman, they auditioned damn near every actor there was (including a dentist!!) before realizing Chris Reeve was it.

            For the movies, I’m guessing it was something like “Well, who’s the next star on the duty roster? Fine, sign him up.”

    • beavertank

  • Relativicus

    My Trump supporter is wearing the hat, yes. But he also has an old, fat face, with a bulbous, red nose. Gin blossoms decorate his cheeks, and his overgrown ears are overgrown with ear-hair. He has a scowl, and a shirt that last fit his beer belly around the time he first voted for St. Ronnie, which reads something along the lines of “Shoot ‘Em all…”.

    Oh, and though his spirit is willing, one good shot to that nose ends the argument.

  • baconzgood

    So a met a woman Trump supporter in a pub. I asked her “what do you like about him”

    “He’s going to end abortion” and then she went into the whole every zygote is scaracid speech.

    So I asked her about birth control and the morning after pill and if the should be banned. And how Don will over turn a supreme Court decision without violating the Constitution. Etc.

    Now at first before we spoke I thought she was very attractive…but after an hour of talking to her I thought she was the ugliest person I ever met.

    Thing is Scott, you drooling moron who used to occasionally write a funny cartoon, most pickup artists are abject failures with women, because eeewwww fucking gross.

    This is why Trump had to pretend to be a spokesperson for himself in a pathetic attempt to fool reporters into writing up his fantastical boasts about imaginary sexual conquests as straight news.

      Oh, that’s absolutely standard talk from libertarian shitbags like him. No obligation to anyone, anywhere, ever. MEMEMEMEMEMEMEME is the only word that matters.

            INORITE? My head exploded when I heard that. FINALLY they’re starting to shake up that franchise a bit. First lower-class rough-edgy Daniel Craig, with his street talk and his bashed-about face, and now a really smoking black guy? WHOA. Next thing you know, M will be a woman!

            Oh, wait…

          • Msmlg1979

            I loved Daniel Craig, and his ass is a Goddamn masterpiece, but Idris? Oh. My. Gawd. Sign me up.

          • Serai 1

            I really love the idea that’s developed that “James Bond” is just a moniker that gets passed down along with the gun, the hot car, and the ridiculous gadgets. Imagine if that had been the case all along – we could have had Bruce Lee playing Bond! (Well, not in the 60’s, but hey, a girl can dream…)

          • The Wanderer

            We had David Niven playing Bond. And Woody Allen as his nephew Jimmy.

          • The Wanderer

            I was never gay for any of the Bonds until Craig showed up.

          • Msmlg1979

            I liked Sean Connery, but he’s a little too “pretty” for my taste. Craig looked like he had been through it. Very masculine and rugged. Yes!

          • Doug Langley

            You thought Connery looked pretty? Not sure I want to know what you thought about Roger Moore.

          • Msmlg1979

            Roger Moore was the worst Bond IMO

          • Doug Langley

            Two words: George Lazenby.

          • Msmlg1979

            Googled. I had forgotten him! You’re right!

          • thenearesthippie

            He was smarmy.

          • Serai 1

            * eyebrows * I don’t think I’ve ever heard Sean Connery described as “pretty” before.

          • Msmlg1979

            He looked more like a rich playboy as Bond than a man who got punched in the face daily is what I’m getting at.

          • Serai 1

            Ah, I see. Yeah, they did polish Bond up for the films.

          • Serai 1

            I’ve always had a soft spot for Pierce Brosnan. Have you ever seen Matador?

          • Doug Langley

            Timothy Dalton was definitely underrated.

          • Serai 1

            Oh yeah. Timothy is always great, even when he’s in a shit movie.

          • Doug Langley

            Poor guy. He gets compared to Connery when he plays Bond. And then he stars in the sequel to Gone With the Wind, and gets compared to Clark Gable.

          • Serai 1

            Well, that was kind of a silly sequel. But I liked him very much as Rhett. If anyone had to follow Gable, he’d be the guy. (I also loved Sean Bean as Slimy Rich Rapist Guy. He’s so good at inspiring Hatefuck Lust.)

          • theCryptofishist

            I don’t suppose you’re talking about Amaldobar.

          • Serai 1

            No, the film starring Pierce Brosnan. It is FUCKING HILARIOUS. I’m serious. I never thought of him as funny, but holy shit, he is wonderful in that film. See it, really.

          • h4rr4r

            I want to know why Vladimir Putin was ever cast as Bond.

          • The Witch of Endor

            So he’s no longer “too street(black)” to be Bond? God knows he’s perfect for the role.

          • Msmlg1979

            More casting fun: Dwayne Johnson as Doc Savage. If you aren’t a fan of vintage pulps, you probably haven’t heard of him, but he was the 30’s version of Buckaroo Banzai.

          • The Wanderer

            All the Yes!

          • The Witch of Endor

            I know of Doc Savage. My sister had at least a couple of the books and I’m pretty sure I read them, but I couldn’t give you details to save my life. I *do* remember the cover art (Doc’s muscles ripping the shit outta his shirt) and Dwayne Johnson would make a great Doc Savage on looks alone. Isn’t Doc like Mr. Clean bald?

          • Jamoche

            One of his sidekicks might’ve been, but Doc was your typical 30s movie-star type.

          • I saw the Ron Ely 70s version, which was apparently partially filmed on the left over Gilligan’s Island sets.

            Thank you for reminding me why I come to Wonkette.

    • theCryptofishist

      What does he even mean by “scientific” in this case? It’s already a pretty vague question to ask, and I”m not sure it can be phrased in such a way as to get meaningful answers. Plus, what would people say about the women? Or, are they somehow irrelevant? Or maybe, once they were mentioned as fighting all the respondents would go to their bunks.
      I’m not sure I believe any polls about attractiveness if we haven’t wired them up to measure arousal, anyway.

  • Marceline

    Let’s be very clear about something: Donald Trump is not attractive. He’s short, fat, and old. His hair looks like attic insulation and his face looks like a cat’s ass and he could get away with that if he were smart or had a cool accent. He doesn’t. He’s never gotten a bit of cootchie that he didn’t have to pay for. He is the last person on Earth who gets to talk about who or what is sexy. As for Adams, stick to drawing cartoons and leave the attempts at social science to others.

    • Msmlg1979

      And even if he or his supporters were beautiful to look at, the minute they opened their horrid mouths, and let all that hate and ignorance spew out, they wouldn’t look so good anymore.

      • Serai 1

        THANK YOU. Handsome is as handsome does, as they used to say.

      I’ve never gotten this theory that a guy can be ugly like the ass end of a fire truck and women ALL OVER OMG will fuck him if he has money. Uh, no. Not every woman will fuck a goddamn mangy troll just because he has bux.

      • Marceline

        Not every one. But there are plenty of women out there who see relationships as a business arrangement. I’ve known plenty of them unfortunately. For me, it’s not money that makes a man attractive, it’s a sense of humor. For example, I find Jon Stewart immensely attractive.

        • Serai 1

          Oh man, a sense of humor is the top thing for me. (That and not whining about housework. WE BOTH LIVE HERE MOTHERFUCKER.) But yeah, if a guy (or girl) can make me laugh on a regular basis, I am SO IN RIGHT NOW.

        • IdRatherBeDancing

          Yup, it’s a good thing Melania does not have to get an erection to consummate her “business arrangement” with the tangerine troll because methinks, even with Viagra, it would not happen.

    Somebody should point out to Adams that a “thought experiment” involves a bit more than “imagine this, and imagine that, and imagine if…” At some point, you have to take reality into account.

  • Lefty Frizzell

    This whole liberals are weak, conservatives are strong thing has gone on for far too long, it’s not going away, and it stinks. So many people associate empathy and compassion with weakness, greed and cruelty with strength.

    Back in blighty not even Paddy Panstdown, the best PM we never had, craggily handsome and ex-SAS, seemed to be able to change that perception.

    I don’t know what’s wrong with people, maybe we are all fatally flawed like the religionists say.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      Given that I’m the liberal, and I’m the one who froze my ass off in Germany and Korea, not so many of these “conservatives”, who’s the weak one? Who’s the candy ass?

    • Msmlg1979

      Patriarchy is a big part of that problem.

That’s insulting to men and women, and hurts all of us.

      • Anna Elizabeth

        So very well said. While I’m not a pacifist- I am willing to defend myself and others, but never aggress – I much prefer the use of brainpower, and “soft” power, like negotiation, compassion, and understanding.

        • Msmlg1979

          We are stronger and safer without violence. We’re stronger when we express and understand our emotions rather than bottle them up and lash out. We’re stronger when we love instead of hate, lift others up instead of trampling them, and we all have more when we share.

          • Anna Elizabeth

            :) I agree with all of this. I’ve cried more the past 12 months than in my entire life before, and I’m healthier, happier, and doing better at life.

            And I firmly believe that there are really only two kinds of people:

            You can tear others down, or

            you can build others up.

          • Msmlg1979

            Good for you! Keep doing that. I cry when I need to cry, and I’m not ashamed or sorry.

          • Anna Elizabeth

            Thank you. And neither am I, anymore. :)

            My family pretty much shamed any show of emotion, except for a vague “contentment”, so it’s been a hard road just learning to show any of it.

            But it’s been worth it. :)

          • Msmlg1979

            My Dad shamed emotion, didn’t even cry when his father died, blew up all the time, and hit us. My Mom taught me it was healthy and natural to express emotion. Now, Dad, all softened by time and age, cries if something is too cute. He doesn’t hit or lose his temper anymore. Funny how that works!

          • Anna Elizabeth

            Isn’t it? My Dad was much the same, afraid to show anything that he perceived as “weakness”, and never really learned any better. My parents both were abused, and both continued the pattern.

            But I’m breaking the pattern. I was raised with hate, fear, and sadness. But I choose to live with hope.

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Because they think they should be able to afford a $60,000 pickup, if only we wouldn’t waste their tax money.

      I’d make a guess that they follow him more for the conservative bs than for the strip. Pity, that.

  • duckshoe

    Trump measures practically everything on a strong/weak continuum. Other paired characteristics (wisdom/idiocy, compassion/cruelty, bravery/cowardice) are of no interest; I don’t think he even understands them. His intense focus on “strong,” of course, just tells me it’s li’l and floppy, and not in a cute way.

  • Jamoche

    I used to teach karate, when I was a skinny college girl, and I’ve seen a fair number of guys like Adams describes: they think merely having size and reach counts for everything, but they’ve never trained so they have no skill and not as much strength as their body could provide.

    So yeah, I can imagine who wins the fight they’re in. Odds are it’s me.

    “Trump’s language and imagery is all “big and beautiful and great.” His buildings are big and powerful. Trump is a big guy in a power suit wearing powerful clothing. He projects power, intentionally.”

    Aside from what all that really says about Turnip as a person, it also says a lot about people who look at it and think “Oh my, how awesome!!!”

    • Damian Hammontree

      Evolutionary psychology proves that people are sexually attracted to transparent bragging. It’s science!

  • SecludedCompound

    The thing is, in my experience, most Trump fans are either kind of pudgy idiots with bad hygiene, angry white males over 60, or scared college alt-righters who are mad about non-white dudes getting ore action than them. This is literally the case with almost every single Trump supporter I’ve met.

    Anecdotal evidence, sure, but somehow I don’t think these are attractive things to the women I would prefer to be attractive to.

    • Serai 1

      Remember Tootsie, the movie where Dustin Hoffman played an actor so desperate for a job that he dressed up like a woman to try to get a female part? There was one scene where he’s girl-talking as “Dorothy” with Jessica Lange, and she asks him about the heavy makeup he’s wearing. He simpers and says, “I have a little moustache problem.” She says encouragingly, “Some men find that attractive.” And “Dorothy” comes back with a line I’ve always loved:

      Yes, but I don’t like the men that find it attractive.

      Such a great answer to that age-old assumption that we should be HAPPY OMG to get ANY male attention possible. That character was a BADASS.

  • Cool_North

    This guy sounds like he wanks at the sound of his own voice. I have no real image for a Clinton or Bernie supporter other than human, but I sure have an image for the Trump supporter, drowned by the theme banjo piece from Deliverance with grunts. I’m sure that is attractive for some (RME).

    • Grokenstein

      This guy sounds like he wanks at the sound of his own voice.

      Adams? You would be correct, Cool. He was caught performing autofellatio via sockpuppetry back in 2011, predicted his Dilberito would change food as we know it, and loves telling everyone that he’s in MENSA.

      Oh! And before he disavowed Trump, he “invented” a word to describe Trump’s critics: “outragists.” MENSA!

      • tomamitai

        I can’t figure out if he’s just trolling for shits ‘n giggles or if he believes any of the shit he writes.

          What’s the standard? 140? So people whose “intelligence quotient” is 140 join and brag. People at 143 don’t join, and don’t say a word.

          PS–Yes, “IQ” is a dodgy thing at best.
          PPS–Yes, I’m sorta bragging about being too smart for MENSA.

      • Cool_North

        I usually avoid this kind of crass comment, but this guy (Adams, yes) so asked for it, it got away from me.

  • chascates

    How about a poll regarding people who say ridiculous things, Scott? Include yourself just below Donald Trump.

  • fergawdssakes

  • William_C_Diaz

    The idea of attractiveness and Trump support being positively correlated is baffling to me. If some woman was a Trump supporter, it would be impossible for me to find her attractive, regardless of what she looked like, etc.

    Intelligence, wit, humor and other lasting, intellectual virtues are the most important things to me. Trump is a reminder that all that glitters is not gold and that small animals are also mindlessly attracted to shiny, worthless objects.

    Have a great day!

    • cat cafe

      Also, objectively, if you look at most Trump supporters, they are mouthbreathing, hate-filled simpletons–not exactly “attractive.”

    • LadyLaz

      William let me applaud this post, particularly in regard to small mammals.

    • Courser

      Adams didn’t discover anything new. It’s pure Social Engagement theory and the old adage, “like is attracted to like”. Basically, you’re not going to be attracted to someone who has a worldview entirely different from yours.

      Yeah, he’s a real genius :::smirk:::

    Scott Adams writes a blog? who the fuck reads it (besides Dok, ofc.)

      Seriously, though, if you go to the usual comic strip sites, clicking Dilbert will send you to his blog instead of just displaying the day’s strip.

        Why do they even blog? I can’t even list all the strips I used to enjoy before the creators decided they had to announce their manifesto to the world.

        • The Witch of Endor

          I’m not into blogs (not counting Wonkette) so I’ve been spared a fair amount of emotional pain finding out people whose work I adore are essentially assholes. It’s bad enough when shitty behavior or political leanings becomes news, I can’t bring myself to seek it out.

          He came out of hiding briefly, though, to guest draw Pearls Before Swine (anonymously, initially and as a pointed joke about the crappy level of artwork normally in the strip). Which immediately was fanboy overload for me as I’m a fan of both.

  • pgjack

    That’s a whole lot of very strange thinking Scott Adams thought. I think he should spend more time thinking about his strip, he seems pretty good at that kind of thinking. He doesn’t seem very good about sexiness of political supporter type thinking.

  • Scott Adams is completely out of touch with reality, of this we can be sure. But what, please someone tell me, is a Trained Persuader? Is this a thing?

    • Damian Hammontree

      He keeps talking in the second person, over and over telling you that you’ve been persuaded by him. Yet I wasn’t. So maybe he’s only an amateur?

      • Sakonyachen

        Imagine how stupid the average person is. Then remember that half of them are even stupider than that. And that half most likely contains all the people that take Scott Adams seriously. So I’m guessing by persuader he means grifter.

    • theCryptofishist

      Bad news. If you “Google” “Trained Persuader” this very issue of this very blog is the first thing that comes up. So, short answer: No. Longer answer: Yes, in Scott Adams’ mind. Longer answer yet: You’d expect whatever guru who trained SA to be the first or second hit… Was he an Autodidact Trained Persuader?

      • Hmmmm – I think to be Autodidactically Trained you have to start off by being a Legend In Your Own Mind.

      • fredfnord

        Perhaps he was merely a Persuader-Trainer.

      Yes. I find it funny.

    • theCryptofishist

      I found it funny for years. When he actually worked, there was some sort of real observation there.
      Or maybe I was just young and naive and didn’t know about MRA yet.

      • david green

        He has stripped out the backgrounds, and I expect just cuts-and-pastes his characters. All he has to actually do is generate some lame narrative.

    • georgiaburning

      I thought he was funny, but maybe because he had some insight into the large-corporate tech industry. He left Pac Bell to go full time cartooning in 1995 and may be a bit cut off from this planet

    • Courser

      I know, some of my favorite celebrities are hoofwanking bunglecunts. It’s frustrating. Some celebrities are known to be assholes, like David Duchovney, but they’re not too horrifyingly awful (YMMV), they know it and they have redeeming qualities. The three above *have* been horrifyingly nasty issues so huge that little can overcome the horribleness.

      • Sakonyachen

        Mostly I ignore the opinions of celebrities, if they do something awful then it kills it for me. Otherwise, their drunken Twitter rants and political sermons don’t really change how I feel about their artwork. Even Mel Gibson ranting about “ThA j00z” wasn’t much of a deal breaker, since I never much liked anything he did anyway.

    • phoenix00

      Mel Gibson?

  • beatbort

    As has been said about Newt Gingrich (he’s what a dumb person thinks of as “smart”), the same can be said for “Dilbert,” a comic strip that dumb people like to read because it makes them feel more intelligent than if they just read “Family Circus” and “Cathy”.

  • Jena-Auerstedt

    I’d just like to add my voice to the chorus that “Dilbert” is the most unfunny excuse for a comic strip of all time. I routinely skip it now whenever I come upon it in the paper. A waste of the trees that died so it could be printed . . .

    • TheBoatDude

      It, like Garfield, was funnier in the early years…but the jokes are tired now. Peanuts was never funny. Don’t get me started on Mallard Fillmore…

      • NationalGalleryofClipArt

        Peanuts is a stone classic.

    • DutchS

      Nope. Marmaduke. When the movie came out I wasn’t too upset, because it would be physically impossible to be unfunnier than the strip. But peruse gocomics.com for a host of utterly unfunny strips like “Drabble,” “Arlo & Janis,” “Fred Basset,” etc., etc.

  • Sakonyachen

    So he is concern trolling his own readers?

    These two surveys are statistically
    meaningless, but I’m willing to bet that a scientific poll of this type
    would show the same order of results, with Trump at the top.

    I’m willing to bet that two surveys taken on Scott Adams’ twitter feed are actually somewhat indicative of the sort of person who actually follows Scott Adams, with no correlation whatever for the general population.

  • “Dilbert is supposed to be funny?”

  • otherplans

    Hey, he’s a pundit. He boldly predicted, in the 2008 primaries that Joe Biden would win, the nomination and IIRC, even called the general for him. So, he knows, right?

  • SeeTrain65

    And to think this Dilbert stunk up an episode of NewsRadio about 20 years ago. And they had the temerity to inflict the viewers with his horribly pathetic comic in the same episode.

    I’m serious about this. Dilbert is not, was not, will never be, funny.

    • DutchS

      No, Dilbert is funny because it lampoons something even stupider than Adams – the organizational mind set. Which a certain candidate embodies to the max.

      • SeeTrain65

        I’ll buy that. But I’d still rather read Sherman’s Lagoon.

  • george gonzalez

    Scotty is about as good at punditry as he is at Physics. In one of his books he wrote that he had this great and the best Physics theory about gravity, about how the earth is growing steadily as to push against our feet. Said theory fails the very first test: does it agree with Newton’s law: F = m1 m2 / G ? Major fail. Punditry, likewise.

  • NorthStarSpanx

    He’s going by Twitter? Remember how the Twitter taught Microsoft’s AI chatbot to be a racist asshole in less than a day?

  • YourNameHere

    Adams also thinks Trump’s “pro-life” position is unjustifiable, and that nobody without a womb gets a say on abortion.

    I have no problem with this position.

    I just read this twice and I hate the fuck out of Adams and he is a MRA loser but he’s not so far off that people tend to find Trump’s superrich/superhot bullshit more attractive than someone helping the poor. Most people are assholes.

    Of course you think of angry white people shoving an African American lady – you are liberal and write for a political blog.

    When I think of Trump, I think of hookers and expensive white trash because that’s what he is. I don’t find that attractive but lots of people do. I mean if I got to spend all my time banging someone I picked out of a catalog or WANTED to do that I may be more inclined to like this dude.
