    +1 for the ignore list... Has he ever actually responded to anybody? Just ignore him and he'll disappear in a puff of Cheeto coloured smoke...

    Yeah, just use the ignore button. And if you don't do that, try your best not to quote him, so that the people who are actually ignoring him don't have to read his rambling nonsense.

    That would probably work for Trump too, handily.

    Trump being a prolific poster in this forum shows how shit it has become.

    Interesting round up of what several political thinkers, sociologists and media figures have learned from Trump's presidency.

    I think it's time we saw all the failed lawsuits to overturn the election for what they really are: cunning strategy.

    He's been like this for years now, it's not new.

    Scott Adams has been vocally supportive of Trump for years, so I'm not surprised at all.

    Didn't he pretend to be his biggest fan on some forum a while back?

    Itís probably safe to assume heís always been a knobhead since he seems to have acted like a dick the minute he got on the internet.

    Wow haven't heard Scott Adams mentioned in years - as a Marvel fanboy, I loved the Questprobe games back in the day

    I read a book of his *years* ago which was just prose, with him giving his view of stuff in prose. On the basis of finding the Dilbert comics quite a good satire of working life, I though "yeah, this could be fun."

    It was just a bunch of ramblings that were borderline conspiracy theory drivel. It was a real "ooookay" moment, and I had him pegged as a lunatic since then.

    Might have even been late 90s? Early 00s? How long has he been doing Dilbert for? Can't remember the title and looking through his books it's not easy because he's published about a million of the buggers.

    Pulling the curtain back is sad. Pretty much the first thing I did when I got a Real Job was sign up for the daily dilbert email

    Is he not a bit of a PUA as well as being a libertarian Trumpster too?

    His argument appears to boil down to "I am rich and successful and therefore right about everything, if you think I'm an asshole it's because you're jealous of my success, oh and check out my hot girlfriend half my age, doesn't she look great in a bikini you fucking simps".

    Might be slightly paraphrasing there.

    Itís so bizarre that Scott Adams is out of his fucking mind, given that Dilbert was often so stunningly insightful.

    No, no. You're spot on.

    Yeah, those were my exact thoughts when I first read about his quirks. I haven't seen any Dilbert comics in ages though, maybe Adams got hit over the head and went loopy at some point but was a stand up guy prior to that or somesuch?

    The way he kept tweeting about dad joke Trump voters lying to pollsters before the election, and then has doubled down on it despite Trump losing by six million votes is just ... just like Trump losing the electoral and popular vote, and then pretend he didn't.

    I don't think there's a grand plan behind Trump filing shit complaints at various courts. He's just throwing everything he has left at the wall to see if any of it sticks.

    I think it's great. He really shines a light at the perverted corrupt version of democracy they've been running over there. All the republicans just playing along as Rome burns is fantastic. I hope the GOP rips itself apart and becomes 65% Gilead and 35% old school republican, whatever that is.

    Let Jared run for president. Or Tucker, or Tom Cotton.

    In other freedom-loving news and also relating to formerly well-loved celebrities, young Ricky Schroder of endless cherubic smiles in heartwarming films is one of the superpatriot cumbuckets who've bailed out Kyle Rittenhouse.

    Also, not that I did, remind me to never watch any Black Rifle Coffee bollocks on YouTube that The Algorithm (echo..) constantly recommends to me.

    Technically it is true that Trump did not have an orderly transition. However it was because he didnít take it as opposed to it not being offered.

    When they say 'legal votes', do they mean only votes for Trump?
