The Comey Fog

scottadamsblog:

Ex-FBI Director Comey released a statement ahead of his appearance before Congress, and it has heads spinning. I’ll tell you how things look through what I call the Persuasion Filter.

Could a trained lawyer sort out this complexity and at least tell you whether or not a law has been broken? Apparently not. Otherwise the lawyers on both sides would agree. They don’t.

Scott Adams doesn’t understand how law works? The lawyers for the defense would be working to find arguments that their client didn’t break the law, or did not intended to break the law etc. It’s ridiculous to suggest that Trump’s defense would have to agree that Trump is guilty for Trump to be guilty. Scott Adams is an idiot.

Scott Adams is a yuuuuge idiot, short attention span edition

Scott Adams is a yuuuuge idiot

Part of the fun in watching Scott Adams justify Trump’s many failings is that he isn’t looking at things through a reality filter. He thinks Trump’s advisors are leaking that Trump has a short attention span, not because Trump has a short attention span but because those advisors can’t tell the difference between short attention spans and a hurried executive. Unlike Scott Adams. Who asures everyone he is really smart. What justification does he give? None. Doesn’t even consider it. Because Scott Adams is so high on his own supply he has lost touch with reality.

Scott Adam’s Dumbest Post Yet

Scott Adams is an idiot and this post is his dumbest yet

Do you see Trump asking Comey to end the Flynn investigation in the quote “I hope you can let this go”?

Of course. Everyone did. Trump cleared the room. He asked Comey about the investigation. The dots connect in a nice neat line.

I’m no lawyer, but I can’t see any judge or jury in the United States prosecuting someone for expressing a hope that the future turns out well for his friend.

How on earth does he get there from “I hope you can let this go” ? By the magic of feigned incredulity.

Watch the headlines and pundits today transmogrify “hope” into “asked to end the Flynn investigation.”

No Scott, the key word is this not hope. You can infer that his use of the word this was in refrence to the investigation and not Comey’s feelings about the world at that point in time.

Not to mention that Trump has literally said he wanted to see an end to the investigation.

That isn’t news.
That is an assassination.

Wow. Investigating Trump over an impossible to believe story and an improbable chain of events is an assassination. Scott has played all the victim cards at once.

But if that happens, no Democrat and no anti-Trump Republican will ever be able to govern in the future. Payback is guaranteed. The next President to sit in the White House will be leaked to the point of ineffectiveness. And that’s how the Republic dies.

Scott is too dumb to see that as an accurate description of seven of the eight years Obama was in office. The TPP process, the sequester, the attempts at immigration reform. All those were destroyed by partisan leaking. Not to mention the DNC leaks that targeted Hillary. What Scott is holding up as the terrible consequence of holding Trump accountable is already the reality for democrats. He’s just too dumb to see it.

Stick to unfunny cartoons.

The Comey Firing

scottadamsblog:

What do Bernie Sanders’ hair and CNN have in common today? They are both saying, “Comey” every time you look at them.

The news coverage of Comey’s firing has become excellent entertainment. This is the biggest cognitive dissonance cluster bomb we’ve seen since election night. This one has everything.

My cursory understanding of the topic is that Trump’s critics say he fired Comey to put a chill on the FBI’s investigation of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. This theory sort-of-almost makes sense, in a hypothetical and indirect way. I could see how taking out the top dog would make the underdogs at the FBI worry about going hard at the President. On the other hand, the people doing the actual investigation are professionals, and there would be too many witnesses if they did a bad job.

Scott Adams is an idiot.

The critics were right. Adams dismisses the idea because he doesn’t see how bad Trump is at even basic things. Adams is suffering from cognitive dissonance. Trump’s critics are not.

A Lesson in Cognitive Dissonance

scottadamsblog:

Imagine you are one of the anti-Trump folks who believe we just elected a racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-semitic, science-denying dictator. Let’s say that’s the movie playing in your mind. That’s some scary stuff.

This is hilarious. Scott Adams is attempting to spin Trump reversing himself on almost everything as Trump being “flexible and pragmatic on just about everything”

Using Scott’s argument:

People stated that Trump lies about everything. Pathologically so. After being elected, Trump demonstrates that his own claims and promises are and unreliable method of determining what he will actually do

Do Trump supporters:

1. Reinterpret their self-images from wise to clueless.

or…

2. Generate an even stronger hallucination. (Cognitive dissonance.)

Mr. Adams shows that he is swimming in cognitive dissonance.

I wasn’t lied to. I’m not a sucker. I didn’t vote for what Trump promised. I voted because I wanted to be surprised by his actual opinions are once he is in office.Wow.
