Scott Adams, the creator of the famous Dilbert cartoon, has been vocal recently about his opinions of the Presidential candidates and, especially, his opinion that Donald Trump is a master of the ‘powers of persuasion’.
Adams, in recent interviews with CNN and Bill Maher, said that Trump will not only win the 2016 Presidential election, but win in a ‘landslide’.
SCOTT ADAMS: I’ve been studying persuasion for decades and when I saw Trump last summer displaying the tools of persuasion I thought, ‘Oh my God, he’s not a crazy clown. Everything he’s doing, including his complete ignoring of the facts, is persuasion perfection. I called him to be the landslide winner in the general election last year.
Essentially he’s basically bringing a flamethrower to a stick fight. There’s nobody using the same tools that he’s using. So his complete ignoring of facts are actually part of the persuasion because he doesn’t give you targets. He doesn’t give you details of his policies, usually. So he’s reducing the number of targets while making you feel good and focusing on the things he wants. So it’s not about facts, it’s about focus and attention.
Adams stopped in to the Alex Jones Show this week to further explain his thoughts of Trump.
