Scott Adams Look at your Trump predictions before talking about politics in public

Love him or hate him, “Dilbert” creator Scott Adams’ views on politics have become a beacon for President Trump’s supporters. It’s hard to find artists who support Trump, but as a champion for the President, it’s hard to find anyone more ideal. After all, Dilbert would have voted for Trump if he were real, right?

His most recent blog post is a list of predictions that people have been making since Trump announced his candidacy in 2015. As you’ll see, nearly all of them were indisputably wrong and the handful that could be contested are a stretch. His claim: If you predicted 15 or more of them, you shouldn’t talk about politics in public.

How to Determine If You Should Talk About Politics in Public

http://blog.dilbert.com/2017/12/22/determine-talk-politics-public/#more-16717When candidate Trump first set about the job of redefining politics (and reality) back in 2015, people had lots of predictions about how things would turn out. One year isn’t long enough to know everything we need to know about his presidency, but it’s long enough to to check some of our predictions. As a public service, I put together a list of predictions that various people made about Trump that you can use to evaluate your own predictive powers. Count the number of items on the list that you once predicted would be true. I’ll tell you how to evaluate your score at the end.

I scored under 15… barely. I didn’t think Trump would win the nomination and he’d definitely lose the general election if he made it out of the GOP pack. There were others on the list, but I qualify as someone Adams believes is still allowed to talk politics in public. Considering what I do for a living, this is a very good thing.
