As you know, I've been on the Scott Adams discussion of Trump for some time. The whole column is worth the read, but this is especially true ... "rationalIZING not rational!". (I've maybe repeated that a few times too many).
"The central insight of these disciplines, Mr. Adams says, is that “people are never rational. They rationalize. So after the fact they tell you why they did something. And there’s plenty of science to support that. Now we can show that people actually make their decision before they come up with their reasons. . . . That was the perspective that I took when I saw Trump.”"The title is about this ...
“The moment I realized there was something special was during the first debate,” he tells me over coffee in the kitchen of his spacious suburban home. “It was the Rosie O’Donnell moment.” Moderator Megyn Kelly had confronted Mr. Trump with the key premise of what Mr. Adams calls “a gotcha question of the highest order”: “You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs,’ and ‘disgusting animals.’ ”
“I asked myself: How would anybody else have answered?” Mr. Adams recalls. “If you denied it, it would look weak. If you embraced it—you really couldn’t. There was nothing you could say. He was completely painted into a corner by his past comments. No one could get out of that. And then he did what no one could do—he got out of it. He said: ‘Only Rosie O’Donnell.’ ”"Only Rosie O'Donnell" -- a very unattractive person that has said ALL sorts of nasty things about any number of people. One can see him with his cherub smile, shoulder shrug, palms out -- the theatre is reminciedt of the left's favorite rapist, Slick Willie.
Slick Willie was once president. BO is president now. ANYONE can be president -- isn't it wonderful?
