So should he grab her by the pussy or no?
So should he grab her by the pussy or no?

Scott Adams, the weird dude who writes the Dilbert comics and is terrible, has some thoughts about the #TrumpTapes, and — as you can probably guess — they are very stupid! And, naturally, he is still very convinced that Donald Trump is going to win this election, even though we all just heard him talking to Billy Bush about grabbing random women “by the pussy.”

His reasoning for this is partly that he is pretty darn sure that Trump has some kind of secret BOMBSHELL information about Hillary Clinton that he has patiently held onto only to release at the exact right time. Which does not so much sound like the Trump we all know and do not love.

1. If this were anyone else, the election would be over. But keep in mind that Trump doesn’t need to outrun the bear. He only needs to outrun his camping buddy. There is still plenty of time for him to dismantle Clinton. If you think things are interesting now, just wait. There is lots more entertainment coming.

2. This was not a Trump leak. No one would invite this sort of problem into a marriage.

3. I assume that publication of this recording was okayed by the Clinton campaign. And if not, the public will assume so anyway. That opens the door for Trump to attack in a proportionate way. No more mister-nice-guy. Gloves are off. Nothing is out of bounds. It is fair to assume that Bill and Hillary are about to experience the worst weeks of their lives.

4. If nothing new happens between now and election day, Clinton wins. The odds of nothing new happening in that timeframe is exactly zero.

Are we to assume that Trump has been holding back? Really? Really? Because he has some kind of heroic self-restraint? We’re talking about a dude who — at 3:30 in the morning — goes on a Twitter rant about how a former Miss Universe is fat and also a slut — and he’s got dirt on Clinton that he’s holding onto and has not gone after her on, because he’s such a classy individual? His gloves have been off for a while — they just have not been landing any punches.

To boot, going after a woman for getting cheated on by her husband is probably not a great way to appeal to women voters.

Adams then tried to explain that men like Donald Trump are just like that, OK?

5. I assume that 75% of male heads of state, including our own past presidents, are total dogs in their private lives. Like it or not, Trump is normal in that world.

Well then, I think we know the solution — VOTE FOR A WOMAN!

6. As fictional mob boss Tony Soprano once said in an argument with his wife, “You knew what you were getting when you married me!” Likewise, Trump’s third wife, Melania, knew what she was getting. It would be naive to assume Trump violated their understanding.

Cool, yeah, Trump is just like Tony Soprano. That is a good thing, a thing people want in a president.

I could give a flying shit if Melania and Trump have an “arrangement” — I mean, quite frankly, I hope she’s getting hers because I cannot even fathom her having to live a life where the only person she gets to fuck is gross Donald Trump. She better have a hot ass pool boy, at the very least. The problem with Trump’s comments is that not that he maybe cheated on his wife, but that he talked about sexually assaulting women.

Adams then tries to suggest that Trump was merely telling the truth about his lived experiences…

7. Another rich, famous, tall, handsome married guy once told me that he can literally make-out and get handsy with any woman he wants, whether she is married or not, and she will be happy about it. I doubted his ridiculous claims until I witnessed it three separate times. So don’t assume the women were unwilling. (Has anyone come forward to complain about Trump?)

Does … does Scott Adams think Donald Trump is handsome? HUH, I guess there is no accounting for taste. However, if you say you go around grabbing women “by the pussy” at random, without bothering to find out if that is something they are into (which it almost definitely is not), you’re clearly saying you don’t care if they are willing or not.

(Oh, and PS: yes, of course they have.)

THIS IS THE BEST PART THOUGH.

8. If the LGBTQ community wants to be a bit more inclusive, I don’t see why “polyamorous alpha male serial kisser” can’t be on the list. If you want to label Trump’s sexual behavior “abnormal” you’re on shaky ground.

Does Donald Trump identify as a “polyamorous alpha male serial kisser”? Is that even a thing? I’m pretty sure that’s not a thing. Also, exactly no one is accepting of any sexual identity that involves doing shit without obtaining consent. We don’t accept child molesters, and we don’t accept men grabbing a woman’s pussy without her permission. Crazy, I know. PS! Unless you actually have a polyamorous relationship, and that is established, you are cheating. You can’t have a polyamorous relationship without your partner’s consent.

Also, comparing a person being gay or bi or trans or queer — or even having a sexual fetish of some kind — to enjoying “grabbing pussies” and kissing women without their consent is some fucking bullshit.

Adams says he still thinks Trump has a 98% chance of winning, but is now changing his endorsement to Gary Johnson “just to get out of the blast zone.” You know, because no one at all will figure out that he is being disingenuous even though he’s literally saying he’s being disingenuous. He claims that as a result of Trump’s comments “[t]he shy Trump supporter demographic just tripled,” I guess because he thinks there are lots of people out there who will hear his comments and go “YEAH, I want that guy to be president! The one who grabs pussies!”? Or that he thought more Trump supporters would go “back in the closet” but stay at the same numbers? One of the two.

At this moment, FiveThirtyEight’s polls plus forecast gives Trump a 22.1% chance of winning, as compared to Adam’s 98% chance. That is a pretty big difference! Who should we trust? The guy who predicts almost every election correctly, or the guy who writes Dilbert comics? I guess we shall see.

    What? Is she made out of Legos? And if she was, you believe Donald Trump would have the attention span to dismantle her?

    • Grab the Land Shark

      Mr Adams: I used to enjoy your comic strip. Pithy and satirical back in the old days. Now you’re just phoning it in.

      If SEVEN Congressional investigations and 11 hours of testimony didn’t “dismantle” Secretary Clinton, I highly doubt a over-blown, failed RE developer and his tribe of morans can do anything.

      Retire now while some semblance of your dignity still survives.

      • Allen Jordan

        Too late. The number of RWNJs retiring with their dignity intact is approaching zero.

    So his behavior would be okay in your book Mr. Adams?

    • Gayer Than Thou

      Honestly? If George Clooney* himself felt me up in public without getting my consent in advance, that would be weird, and I would, at best be conflicted about it. If Donny felt me up (which, thank the goddesses above, he never will), I am sure I would vomit. Preferably on him. With votes, or whatever.

    Yes, my totally consensual sexual activities with adults of the same sex are as bad to these Gastropods as Trump bragging about sexually assaulting a married employee.

    • SnarkOff

      You win just for “gastropods.”

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    Adams seems to be working as hard to destroy his own brand as Trump is working to destroy the Trump brand.

    • Ikimizi

      I really wonder if he got into this, not because he expected to win, but for marketing purposes, and was surprised by how well he did. But, being bad at things, he’s now turning it all to shit.

    I think you have it the wrong way around, sir. Trying to normalize what Trump is talking about is not firm footing. But hey, if you want to walk out into that quicksand I don’t think anyone’s going to stop you.

  • TJ Barke

    I don’t think polyamorous people are cool with sexual assault.

    • Blank Ron, Defender of Bunnies

      I’ve known quite a few. No, they are not, any more than anyone else is.

      • Vienna Woods

        From what I hear from friends, his pussy grabbing would get him kicked out of any swingers club.

        • Blank Ron, Defender of Bunnies

          Yup. And at a BDSM play party it would get him beaten up first, by people who know how.

          • Amy!

            SSC. “You can get away with whatever you want” doesn’t fit in there.

    • Roadstergal

      No. We’re not.

      • Gayer Than Thou

        I defer to your expertise, but I never understood “polyamorous” to mean anything like “grabs any hot person in their no-no place without even asking first.”

      • LK312

        I’m also guessing that both LBGT and polyamorous people resent being grouped in with perverts like Trump. Why do pervy white guys like Trump and Adams think that having a non-hetero or traditional sexuality automatically means that you’re a perv and okay with or turned on by sexually degrading someone? I’ve always thought that those groups are more about respecting people, not mocking them.

  • msanthropesmr

    Fuck this guy.

    Ya know, Scott, I’m not sure there’s any social norm that Drumpf hasn’t violated. (Not saying I wish it happened, just saying it wouldn’t surprise us at this point)

    The sad part is that Republicans are going to say they had the election in the bag until this happened and won’t learn a fucking useful lesson from it.

    • Grab the Land Shark

      I hope so. I hope they learn nothing. Then I’ll watch as the progressives in the younger generation throw their bony, old white asses out of Congress.

    • Oneofthebobs

      But watching the Republican party burn to the ground isn’t sad.

      • SterWonk

        Yes it is. Loyal opposition is very important — even more so in our de facto two-party system. A sane conservative party which is willing to call out the Democrats when they try to go too far, but who is also willing to work with them to compromise, is vital. Unfortunately, the GOP put the brakes on being that party around the time of Clinton, and slammed to halt under Obama.

        • Oneofthebobs

          The Democrats are the conservative party.

          • Yeah, this election strikes me as less “left versus right” than “reality-based versus deranged”, or perhaps “thoughts versus desires”.

          • SterWonk

            Compared to Europe, sure. But in the US, they’re the relatively liberal party. :-)

          • Oneofthebobs

            In my view, the Democrats of today occupy the same territory as the Eisenhower Republicans. The modern Republican party acts as an extreme right hate group. That’s why I’d be happy to see them go.

  • Loki1001

    Remember that time that Scott Adams claimed Donald Trump was such a brilliant persuader that no one understood how persuasive he is, and therefore were terrified of him and determined to make sure he never gets to the White House?

    Yeah… he’s… not operating on reality at this point.

    And I just now had the BRILLIANT idea of doing a mashup between the comic strip and the creepy passive-aggressive MRA tone of the blog, but dang: already been done, and better than I would’ve. http://mradilbert.tumblr.com/

    WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK? This guy has worked in the newspaper world for his entire life. Does he really think that the editor of the Washington Post called up the Clinton campaign and asked their permission before running a bombshell story that was sure to garner them about a billion page clicks? If nothing else, doesn’t he understand how capitalism works? Does he think that media companies exist as charitable outlets for politicians they like? OMG the idiocy.

    • nightmoth

      I read this morning that NBC had the tape for 4 days before releasing it because first they cleared it with their lawyers.

      • SnarkOff

        Clearing something with the corporate lawyers is understood. They do it to be sure they can’t get sued for libel. But contacting an outside body to ask permission to publish a story DOES. NOT. HAPPEN.

          • nightmoth

            We all kid about Fox News here to keep ourselves from going insane with rage over how much damage it has done to our country. I wish I could launch a missile attack on all their satellites. And I feel for you–I’m a former editor whose local paper got sold to a chain.

    5. I assume that 75% of male heads of state, including our own past presidents, are total dogs in their private lives.

    For the past 8 years, we’ve had a tall, handsome president who is devoted to his wife and children. For that matter, as much as I disliked George Bush, he was faithful to Laura. So don’t go pretending that Trumpian behavior is the standard.

    • Jen B_VA

  • Loki1001

    If the LGBTQ community wants to be a bit more inclusive, I don’t see why “polyamorous alpha male serial kisser” can’t be on the list.

    Sooooo, I guess we should add “sexual orientation” to the list of things Adams does not understand. Sexual orientations are giant broad categories that everyone falls into, and describe only one limited thing with zero judgement. “I like to get a bit handsy with women I find hot” is not a sexual orientation.

    • Me not sure

      It is however punishable by law.

        Yup. David sent a married woman’s husband to the front lines to be killed so that when he grabbed her pussy she wasn’t married any more.
        So, in a weird letter-of-the-law way, more moral than Trump.

  • pgjack

    It sould be nice if the guy who writes such funny comic strips was a decent human being but he’s just a cartoonist, so what he thinks about other things really doesn’t matter. If he’s married I hope his wife is content with his demeaning opinion of women.

    • Msgr_Trump_has_killed_satire

      I hope he cleans her latex parts frequently.

        Ugh, another causality of the school that says men should never learn how to process their feelings. I feel hurt but can’t admit it, so will lash out at anyone resembling, in the slightest, the person who I feel hurt me, allowing my pain to slowly turn into a ball of bitterness and rage that will eventually all but consume my humanity.

          Right? Look Scott, if Donny were still a Democrat, he would not be the nominee because everything about how he is is antithetical to the values of the Democratic party, which is why he is a Republican.

      • Blank Ron, Defender of Bunnies

        ‘Plus, Robert Byrd! Right?’

      • Good_Trouble_Yall

        Let’s not be too hard on little Scotty. This is what passes for deep thinking in his circle. It’s a zinger in his mind, assuming, with facts not in evidence, that he has a mind.

  • GodEatGod

    I feel sometimes like I never knew my own gender before this year. Like, I always knew a few toxic macho assholes, but THESE FUCKING GUYS. I mean, what the living fuck? And they all, always think every male thinks like them and it’s just…what? To quote Cathy, a mediocre ass comic strip that’s still ten times funnier than fucking Dilbert, just ACK. FUCKING ACK.

  • DainBramage

    Scott Adams is more clueless than his Pointy-Haired Boss character.

  • Joe Beese

    If nothing new happens between now and election day, Clinton wins. The odds of nothing new happening in that timeframe is exactly zero.

    Thus, the odds of Clinton winning are exactly zero!

    • bubbuhh

      Dilbert Guy stutters with stats. This is an example of a man who confuses the ability to speak a language with the ability to think logically.

    • mackafritz

      He seems to think nothing new is going to happen to Trump. The odds of that are exactly zero.

    • Latverian Diplomat

      For you logic nerds out there, this is known as the fallacy of denying the antecedent.

      If x then y
      Therefore if not x then not y [erroneous]

      It is also known as the fallacy of the inverse.

      • Joe Beese

        No, you’re inverse!

        • Latverian Diplomat

          I prefer a comfortable pair of converses, myself.

  • Allen Jordan

    It’s about consent you flappin’ mouth-breather! No, you cannot just GRAB a woman’s breasts because other women breastfeed in public. No, you cannot just GRAB a woman by her private parts just because of 50 Shades of Gray. No, it wasn’t the word “pussy”, you malodorous imbecile, it was the word “GRAB” that’s the problem.

  • Oneofthebobs

    This guy has been drawing the same “my boss is so stupid” comic for so long that his brain has seized up.

    • Ghenghis McCann

      He works for himself these days. So who’s he calling stupid?

    • Loki1001

      He used to use a sockpuppet account to go on Reddit to argue with people who didn’t like his work. Including telling one Reddit user, “You’re talking about Scott Adams. He’s not talking about you. Advantage: Adams.”

      • Jen B_VA

        When your ego is as fragile as an “alpha male”s you have to do something

        • Ghenghis McCann

          Usually involving masturbation. I believe.

          • Celtic_Gnome

            Right. Start attacking my hobbies.

      • Good_Trouble_Yall

        OTOH, since Scott Adams was, actually, talking about the Reddit user at the time, I would have to score that at least as a tie. Considering that the Reddit user forced Adams to put on a fake persona and do battle with him, you could even score it Advantage: Reddit guy.

    this happened? suuuuure.

  • Señor Skwerl King

    If you want to label Trump’s sexual behavior “abnormal” you’re on shaky ground.

    Unfortunately, because of how often woman are harassed and assaulted you may be right on “abnormal”, but that in no way makes it acceptable. (or legal)

  • OddMan

    Well LGBT PG does have a certain je ne sais quoi.

  • Toomush_Infer

    Murder’s not so rare in some places…..so – socially acceptable now, too?…

    • DainBramage

      As, I’m sure, some murderers derive sexual pleasure from it. I’m sure Scottie will want them classified and accepted.

    • UnsaltedSinner

      I understand the Sopranos found it acceptable, so…

  • Gentle Robot

    Still confused why Trump thinks anyone would want to fuck an old, fat, ugly, gross-looking, combovered, poorly spray-tanned, weird-sounding, tiny-handed, morally repugnant man.

    • Blacktop Cadence

      I’m hoping it replaces fedoras for those types of guys.

      No accounting for Dilbert Guy’s tastes.

    • Peter Witting

      Well, he DID take her furniture shopping. There’s that.

        It’s like he got all his sexual information from Mary rather than Fred, and she got all hers from Victorian novels.

    “If you think things are interesting now, just wait. There is lots more entertainment coming”

    Interesting that he looks at Trump’s behavior as “entertainment”, and not the gross national embarrassment that it is.

  • Jen B_VA

    I assume that publication of this recording was okayed by the Clinton campaign. And if not, the public will assume so anyway. That opens the door for Trump to attack in a proportionate way. No more mister-nice-guy. Gloves are off. Nothing is out of bounds. It is fair to assume that Bill and Hillary are about to experience the worst weeks of their lives.

    I know you already covered this, Robyn, but for reals…..Mister-Nice-guy? The fuck invited Gennifer Flowers to a debate! When has he EVER been Mister nice guy?

    • Bub the Leftwing Zombie

      Hey, Donnie once told his chauffeur to drive around a homeless guy passed out on West 57th…

      That’s a direct quote from Adams, not our Ms. Pennacchia.

    His logic falls apart by numbers 2 and 3. First of all, does 2 even need to be stated?
    And, as for no. 3, do you think that the Washington Post clears its journalistic bombshells with anyone, much less Hillary Clinton?
    Scott Adams is as sad a man as his comic is unfunny.

    • Latverian Diplomat

      Fahrenthold has an unnamed source. That person is most likely someone at NBC who was unhappy that NBC was dragging their feet on the story.

      It’s possible that someone at NBC gave it to the Clinton campaign who gave it to Fahrenthold, but that still wouldn’t count as the Clinton campaign “approving” the story as much as them knowing who the one reporter doing his goddam job is right now.

      • Jen B_VA

        Personally I think it is Barron. He is the one so good with computers.

  • fergawdssakes

    Adams thinks most men are this way, wonder why?…

    • Kiri the Unicorn

      Because he spends way too much time talking to his own dick.

  • Spotts1701

    Well, the moderators are going to go right at it:

    “The first set of questions at Sunday night’s presidential debate will be about Donald Trump’s vulgar comments on a newly published 2005 videotape, and the fallout from it.”

    Clinton won the coin toss, so she gets to go first.

    • Blank Ron, Defender of Bunnies

      Best thing she could do is say, ‘I’m sorry, Anderson, I’d prefer to talk about policy first,’ and let Donnie squirm.

      • Astraea

        I’d like to see her link his attitudes toward women to how that would affect how he’d enact policies, appoint people to agencies, etc, as the smart lady on AM Joy pointed out this morning.

        • ltmcdies

          a I saw someone making that linkage yesterday and was very effective.

      • (((parkii)))

        I’m leaning that way myself. I’ve already heard a few lefty Berners whining about how no one is talking about the issues (as if they don’t already know what they are or what their respective plans – or lack thereof – are). It might work really well to take the high road and pretend it didn’t happen (like anyone could forget!) so that when he drags up all his Bill dirt, he looks even worse than he would if they were engaging in a two way discussion about lewdness.

      • IdRatherBeDancing

        Yes — something akin to vulgar statements have never created one job, bought armor for the military or addressed climate change. Those are the issues I am going to discuss. There is a Latin phrase used in the law — res ipsa loquitar — “it speaks for itself” — she does not need to say anything.

    • Astraea

      So Donald will go off on some shit about Bill Clinton for 99% of his time on the question, y/y?

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        His handlers will try to convince him that contrition is his only option.
        “I am not the guy I was ten years ago” will be pure unadulterated bullshit, but it will be good enough to elude real-time fact-checking and close out the topic. Unless Hillz is armed with some juicy revelation from just last year (we can hope!)
        Going off on Bill, which is what Trump is dying to do, will backfire spectacularly. Women don’t want to hear that what their husbands do makes them failures. Donnie is literally incapable of comprehending this.

    • ltmcdies

      am I alone in that …do I really want to watch and worse hear this. Seriously thinking of following “somebody’s ” live blog

        it is like flying, in Douglas Adams’ later books- the moment you think about what you’re doing, you lose it and fall

      • mml1996

        BINGO. Over-exaggerated displays of what alpha males call “manliness” is not a way to charm any woman’s heart, let alone her pants.

        How fucking difficult is it for these repressed c**ts, to knock off the kerosene they’ve been huffing on, and start treating women as human beings, NOT FUCKING SEX DOLLS FOR YOUR USE AND THROW.

        • Loki1001

          These are people who believe women have biological cheat codes that allows you to get into their pants… and also that picking up women is a numbers game so you have to try to pick up as many women as possible until you find one that says “yes.”

    I think we are looking at this all wrong.
    For years, the right has claimed the moral high ground on everything. THEY care for the troops: Then Trump starts a fight with a gold star family and says that our generals are stupid and those with PTSD are weak. They are forced to defend him, thereby becoming hypocritical.
    THEY support traditional family values: Then Trump talks about molesting random married ladies, while he is married, and bragging how he can get all the strange he wants. They are forced to defend him, thereby again, being hypocritical.
    THEY claim we are a Judeo-Christian country. Then they nominate Trump who, instead of a bible, keeps a copy of Mein Kampf on his nightstand and can’t even get spoon fed quotes right. They are forced to defend him and, more and more, prove to be hypocritical.

    Trump is single handedly destroying all the moral ground the GOP has claimed for decades.

    • Vincent Ricola

      Trump is what the GOP looks like in the morning, before coffee and makeup and the dead hooker is removed from the bed. There’s no hiding from what they are anymore and the Dems are capitalizing (thank goddess).

          • Serai 1

            He’s not busting them up. At most, the Republican Party will take a hit. But it’s a bit silly to pretend that even losing the party will make these assholes go away. We’re stuck with them – they may be unmoored for a while, but they’re certainly not going to just disappear, or be “aged out”, or anything else. Hate and ignorance and bigotry are HUMAN things. They’re always around messing things up, and they always will be. It’s in our nature. If the GOP collapsed, they’d just regroup and form another party and keep on keeping on.

          • Biel_ze_Bubba

            The GOP has finally learned that the right-wing nutters are toxic to their national ambitions, and to the business of governing the country. Moderate, reality-based Republicans have had enough of the bullshit – they will either kick out the crazies, or leave the GOP entirely. Either way, the monolithic right that’s been paralyzing Congress will cease to exist.

    • edith prickly

      They’re also finding out that a big chunk of their base never cared about that moral high ground, they just wanted a noisy buffoon who would put all the brown people and immigrants back in their place and treat foreign affairs like a dick-sizing contest.

        They will be as, for the next decade, ever Dem uses that in every debate.
        OHhhh he says he is for family values but…he supported Trump.

        • Sedagive

          It’s true: the Dems have been handed the ultimate weapon during this campaign; may they have the wisdom to use it.

          Given the current political climate, however, such logic will only be able to sway the 2 – 3 percent of people who are not already wedded to an increasingly incoherent ideology. Scary, scary thought.

          • Jen B_VA

      (Wilson)

        Fixed it.

      • Gayer Than Thou

        By coincidence, Wilson, Selznick’s would-be epic based on the life of Woodrow Wilson, is one of the most boring movies ever made.

        • Jen B_VA

          Woodrow was not precisely an exciting dude.

          • Gayer Than Thou

            And yet, the movie makes him exponentially more boring. It is a wonder to behold. You think you know what boredom is, but if you haven’t seen Wilson, you haven’t scratched the surface.

          • Jen B_VA

            giggle. That ought to be a movie review.

          • Mehmeisterjr

            To be fair, almost any Presidential biopic in those days was fated to be a hagiography and hence, a supreme snoozefest. The only exceptions I can think of are a few Lincoln movies.

            It would not be easy to make a good WW biopic, even though he was an curious mixture of good and evil, then turning pathetic, ending his life as Charlie McCarthy to his second wife’s Edgar Bergen.

            But his appearance and public persona were so stiff that I doubt that even Ken Russell at his craziest could have goosed him to the borderline of vaguely interesting.

          • Gayer Than Thou

            I gather Selznick thought he had another Gone With The Wind on his hands, in the sense that it would be a grand, sweeping epic for the ages. It … is not. Though it certainly feels just as long.

  • Kiri the Unicorn

    “Polyamorous”? Trump is about as opposite of that as is possible. He doesn’t love the women whom he maligns and molests: they’re just objects to him, as personal as targets in a video game. Trump only loves Trump.

    • veska

      Even if he did love them, the basic tenet of polyamory is all parties agreeing. Otherwise, it’s just out and out cheating. Of course, I suppose Dilbert-dude actually thinks most women would be OK with this, no need for asking.

      • Good_Trouble_Yall

        Doesn’t care what women think, would be my take. “Oh, you married me knowing what I’m like – we cheated on my last wife together, after all – and now you want to complain about it if I cheat on you? Tough shit, little lady. Go make me a sammich.”

      • Kiri the Unicorn

      His friends says, “What are you doing? You can’t outrun a bear!”
      His friend replies, “I don’t have to outrun the bear; I only have to outrun you!”

        I know, I have been a Dilbert fan for years. But this is one time that my thoughts of the man are so abhorrent that I can’t see the humor in the comic any more. Plus I don’t want my subscription to the local paper helping to pay for Mr. Adams diatribes against reason and sanity.

    2. This was not a Trump leak. No one would invite this sort of problem into a marriage.

    Uh. About that. Mrs. Trump is lace curtain enough that she was OK with nazi death threats going to a reporter who wrote about her dad’s extra kid.

    In August, her child had to travel to school past news stands full of pictures of his naked mom necking with another lady on the cover of the Post, which is pretty much the print house journal of the Trump campaign. The Post somehow got hold of that photoshoot exactly when the Trump campaign needed to pull focus from a stream of gaffes, including that thing where the campaign gave Mrs. Trump a plagiarized speech and then blamed her for it.

    So, yeah, at least one person would invite this kind of problem into a marriage. Which we already knew, because he asked his first wife if he could keep his second wife as a piece on the side.

    So other than that he’s never successfully been in one, what exactly does Scott Adams know about marriage?

        He is going to have strangers asking him questions. Real questions. Not from Trump fans but people who want answers. Who need to be taken seriously since they represent the rest of the voting public.

        He’s dead.

    • SeekingBarbie

      He will respond the way he responds to questions during interviews, by veering off into rally talking bravado points and Obama-Clinton accusations. If he answers the questions at all, it will be with little policy substance (because that’s all he has) and vague promises that basically affirm “we definitely need to do something about that.”

  • JD Mulvey

    Here’s my great idea:

    In tonight’s debate, when Trump “goes after” Hillary about Bill being horrible, her response should be “Donald, when Melania heard your comments on that tape, do you believe that she should have left you?”

    If he says (and he will) that Hillary shouldn’t pull his marriage into this, she says “Then leave mine out of it too.”

    If, on the other hand, he says “No, we have a great marriage and Melania and I will work it out,” then Hillz can say “Us too. Next question.”

    Hillary, please send me $10 for my great idea.

            Huh?

    • Electric Ukulele Land

      I think the key points to hit are:

      – The American people saw the “apology” video that you released in the wee hours of Saturday. And they know what an *actual* apology looks like. Nobody needs to explain to *them* what the difference is.

      – Marriage is hard work — we all know that — and I have kept my marriage together for over forty years. My relationship with my husband is something I value and will continue to value. I take my vows seriously.

      – But make no mistake, when I am sworn in in on January 20th 2017, I will be the president, not my husband. I will set the agenda and I will set the tone of my administration. The buck will stop with me. And when I speak, you can be sure that little girls and little boys across the nation will feel empowered and they will be proud of their president.

      I don’t see much that helps by getting into the muck with Trump — maintaining the high ground and pivoting to leadership will provide the contrast that’s needed.

  • Rags

    First post-tape poll has 74% of Republicans supporting Trump – not good news for Senate race Trump-bailers. 538 has 44% of voters going for Trump – not good news at all for our future.

        It probably helps that Johnson is an otherwise unemployable Republican with the Koch brothers’ hand up his ass.

    • byobg

      He’s switching to Johnson to “get out of the blast zone.” See, now that they PC Gynocracy has decided that supporting Trump is the legal and moral equivalent of rape, tons of average nice guys like Scott Adams have to PRETEND that they’re not voting for him if anybody asks.

      This is why Trump’s poll numbers will APPEAR to go down over the next couple of weeks – because of the fear that normal men have of being victimized by the Vagenda of Manocide. Trump’s always had a huge (HYOOOGE) number of silent supporters who would lie to pollsters, and now he has even more – hence, landslide.

        After this is all over and Trump is safely consigned to wherever, I’d like someone to make a chart of all the attempted pivots, how long each one lasted, and what the blow up was.

    • Vagennifer Flowers

      You forgot his jews and the blacks.

  • Greg Comlish

    Last week there were two devastating major stories about Trump based on anonymous leaks. Both happened in the “October Surprise” window and both of them precisely lined-up with major lines of attack Hillary used in the last debate. So Scott is almost certainly right that the Dems orchestrated the origination and timing of these stories.

    Where Scott is mistaken is his implied belief that this wave of negative coverage is over. Trump is a fat target with a long history of making enemies. God-knows-what else Clinton’s massive opposition research team has dug up on Trump. And until October they didn’t even feel the need to use their opposition research since Trump’s campaign itself was generating negative material on a almost constant basis. Who knows how many bullets there are left in the chamber? I’m betting there’s a few and they probably saving the worst for last.

    If I were the DNC, I would be thinking well beyond the Presidency. At this point the goal is to throw the entire GOP into chaos and dissension. The Dems want an overwhelming Presidential victory, a solid majority in the Senate, and major gains in the House. They want to foster the brewing civil war between the GOP elites and their base. And the Dems are very close to succeeding.

    Trump doesn’t have jack shit in his back pocket. All he has are a bunch
    of attacks on Bill Clinton and I guaran-fucking-tee you that the
    Clinton campaign can’t wait for him to use them. They have gamed this
    scenario out a dozen times, and focused grouped it, and Hillary has
    personally practiced responses to exactly this line of attack that will
    chew his ass up.

          He was scary as a rich private person.

          As a public figure, his litigious resources are strongly limited. I don’t think he’s actually aware of that, but yeah, he’s not going to get anywhere suing people for mudslinging on the campaign trail.

          • eddi

            Not that it stops him from trying.

          • AngryKatie

            His dwindling bank account will.

            The unwashed masses aren’t paying $700 a night to stay in his hotels, and they’re sure as hell not buying $150k golf memberships. The Trump brand will be limited to bargain basement merchandise, at bargain basement prices, after this.

          • SeekingBarbie

            When he can’t make the lease payments on the Old Post Office Building, it will be fun to hear him justify screwing over the taxpayers (because it does, after all, belong to us).

          • AngryKatie

            Also too, Deutsche Bank was the only reputable bank that was still willing to lend him money, and they hold the paper on that. So he’ll burn the only banking relationship he had left, leaving him with no source of funds that doesn’t rhyme with bussian bafia.

    • AngryKatie

      My initial reaction was also that the Dems were behind it, but then the Access Hollywood producer (can’t remember his name) said that the Alicia Machado melt down reminded him of Trump footage he’d seen years ago, so he went digging and found it. They started working on a story about it for Friday’s show, but decided not to run it till Monday because they couldn’t get it done in time. Someone, they think within NBC, then leaked the footage to Fahrenholdt, likely to ensure it got out before the debate.

      For the Dems to be behind it, they would have had to collude with Access Hollywood as it was their tape, or the producer. But then AH let themselves be scooped by WaPo. I don’t see them colluding to give another outlet a running start with the story of the campaign when it started as an AH exclusive.

    • Blacktop Cadence

      This really is becoming a running theme. Romney walked our of the primaries and Obama blasted him with a double barrel in the face right out of the gate.

            Yes, he was, and that’s what made Khan a great foil. At the end of Space Seed, there was mutual respect, if I recall correctly (like I didn’t just watch that not too long ago ;))

            Difference with Trump is, he has lost respect, was never clever, and doesn’t care about anyone but himself.

    I realize I am partisan, but Trump supporters thinking defies reason. How does this make a “win”? Isn’t he justifying Melania doing EXACTLY what they’re accusing Hillary of doing – that is, “enabling” her husband?

    • Electric Ukulele Land

      Logic and reason and cohesiveness of argument don’t really factor into the Trump supporter line of attack — like the man they follow, it’s all about making noise and appearing to be bigger and louder. Hence the word salads and interruptions. Any line of assault if fine so long as something sticks because it helps affirm a pre-disposition, an already deeply ingrained belief that is so primordial that it’s barely expressible in language.

    Trump is definitely holding back on some bombshell revelation about Hillary — after dragging out the Vince Foster murder conspiracy, the cheating-on-Bill accusation, saying she was a co-founder of ISIS, that she wants to repeal the second amendment and have open borders — and seeing how well all those played — the next one’s gonna be the final blow that sinks her completely — probably having to do with her shooting Abraham Lincoln, but that’s just a guess.

    Are the states in the middle much less densely populated than the edges? Forgive my ignorance. I know what it was like in the 1800s, coz I teach a couple of units about Native Americans, but no idea about the present.

    • JustDon’tSayPu55y

      Much less, except for a few big cities like San Antonio and Chicago.

      • theCryptofishist

        North Dakota was at one point, and could still be, the only state losing population.

    • Unclejeems

      The only truly red state with a large population is Texas. Florida is sometimes in play (see the 2000 election), but otherwise the large, rectangular states in the middle of the country are comparatively sparsely populated–lots of non-voting rocks and trees and very few people. Wyoming has a population of less than 1 million, for example.

      Even at that, there are western states with lots of square miles but relatively small populations that tend blue–see Nevada and New Mexico.

      If you want to see a more accurate graph of how states stand in terms of population and electoral votes, you might want to take a look at the map here, provided by the Princeton Election Consortium: http://election.princeton.edu/electoral-college-map/ .

    • cat cafe

      Much, much, much less. Wyoming, for example has 560,000 people, versus California, which has almost 40 million, and New York, which has 28 million. Those of us who live in powerhouse, productive, high-population states are chafing at the fact that the small, unpopulated, rural states have an outsize effect on choosing a government that should reflect the entire country. This especially comes into play in the Senate, where far fewer people actually vote “Republican,” yet because of the way our governance system is set up, have far greater representation, often of backwards, extremist views.

      I personally wish we could adjust it–I don’t think our Founding Fathers had any idea that there would be this degree of imbalance. Say, the larger states could get two extra senators for every 20 million residents, for example. The Dakota Territory was admitted to the union and divided into two states to give the Republicans a majority–so now we have North and South Dakota getting FOUR senators, for a combined population of 1.5 million, while we in California, over 25 times the population, only have two, just doesn’t seem right.

      But I also think California should just become our own country. We’re already ranked 6th in the world against other entire countries.

      And there’s always Texas…..

      oh and if you think this is all hillz has on trump, you’re out of your mind, even the access hollywood guy said there’s probably more like this, he has interns digging through all the tapes now. oh and mark burnett (producer of the apprentice) has all the out takes and we already know there’s lots of gross stuff in there. if the race gets even remotely close, the gay liberal jewish cabal that conservatives say runs hollywood isn’t gonna let him sit on that

    Adams needs to keep all words related to polyamory out of his mouth. that goes for all Trumpettes and quadruple for the ludicrous tangerine ball bag himself. I am so sick of people using polyamory as an excuse to be a shithead. if you’re being a shithead, you’re clearly not poly.

      I asked about this before, regarding Trumpkins in general. I’d love to do this, but it’d have to be in a way that guarantees they’ll pay up when they lose, instead of “It doesn’t count because argle bargle so I’m keeping the money.”
      Also you know that even when they say it’s 98% certain that Trump will win, they’ll chicken out and not give you 49 to 1 odds.

      Because if you’re in the tank for Trump you’re probably full of shit.

    Re: Adams’ point #7—Even Trump didn’t claim that his victims liked what he did, he only said that they didn’t stop him. The fact that this point just doesn’t register with so many Republicans is quite telling. Not that we needed yet another example of their consent-blindness on top of the thousands they’ve already provided, but it’s still telling.

    Trump didn’t give any indication that he cared one way or the other if they enjoyed it. His pussy grabbing is a dominance display, not a seduction technique. (Furniture shopping is apparently his seduction technique. WTH?) Given that people are different and that our society tends to be quite dazzled by celebrity I imagine that some number of women he pulled this on were OK with it. That doesn’t change the fact that he didn’t have consent before he did it and didn’t care, which means he still committed sexual assault.

    Not only did he commit sexual assault, he bragged about it in an apparent effort to impress/assert dominance over Billy Bush. That’s just pathetic.

    Ladies, Scott Adams is a satirist. His consistent theme is that working stiffs are smarter than their bosses. This would be unthinkable to a Republican.

  • Jeffery Campbell

    Let’s not forget this (from the Wikipedia): “In March 2011, Adams posted a controversial, widely discussed blog post where he wrote, “The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently.” He did, however follow that comment with the clarification “I realize I might take some heat for lumping women, children and the mentally handicapped in the same group. So I want to be perfectly clear. I’m not saying women are similar to either group. I’m saying that a man’s best strategy for dealing with each group is disturbingly similar.”

    Asswipe.
