Scott Adams’ Periscope replays used to auto-delete after 24 hours. I maintain the videos at the Scott Adams Periscope Archive and offline for historical purposes and for the public and media to use (right). Twitter has already removed Vine.
These companion-posts are also useful as a searchable reference for Scott’s accumulating broadcasts .
This can be a video companion to Scott’s blog post: The Bully Party. (I include the text of his article with link enhancements.)
Scott reviews his reasons for switching his candidate endorsements
People have unpredictably become used to all of the mudslinging
Clinton has encouraged and her supporters to bully fellow American citizens
“The fact that there hasn’t been a terrorist attack lately, what does that tell you about ISIS’ preference for president . . . ISIS thinks that it’ll have a better chance of thriving and surviving with a Clinton presidency.”
Not cursing during this broadcast to test if Periscope used that as a factor in artificially dropping the viewer count
Has there ever been a candidate in the history of the United States who tried to turn citizens against each other?
We know from Project Veritas that Clinton supporters tried to incite violence at Trump rallies. The media downplays it.
We also know Clinton’s side hired paid trolls to bully online. You don’t hear much about that.
Yesterday, by no coincidence, Huffington Post, Salon, and Daily Kos all published similar-sounding hit pieces on me, presumably to lower my influence. (That reason, plus jealousy, are the only reasons writers write about other writers.)
Joe Biden said he wanted to take Trump behind the bleachers and beat him up. No one on Clinton’s side disavowed that call to violence because, I assume, they consider it justified hyperbole.
Some Trump supporters online have suggested that people who intend to vote for Trump should wear their Trump hats on election day. That is a dangerous idea, and I strongly discourage it. There would be riots in the streets because we already know the bullies would attack. But on election day, inviting those attacks is an extra-dangerous idea. Violence is bad on any day, but on election day, Republicans are far more likely to unholster in an effort to protect their voting rights. Things will get wet fast.
As I often say, I don’t know who has the best policies. I don’t know the best way to fight ISIS and I don’t know how to fix healthcare or trade deals. I don’t know which tax policies are best to lift the economy. I don’t know the best way to handle any of that stuff. (And neither do you.) But I do have a bad reaction to bullies. And I’ve reached my limit.
I hope you have too. Therefore…
I endorse Donald Trump for President of the United States because I oppose bullying in all its forms.
I don’t defend Trump’s personal life. Neither Trump nor Clinton are role models for our children. Let’s call that a tie, at worst.
The bullies are welcome to drown in their own bile while those of us who want a better world do what we’ve been doing for hundreds of years: Work to make it better while others complain about how we’re doing it.
Today I put Trump’s odds of winning in a landslide back to 98%. Remember, I told you a few weeks ago that Trump couldn’t win unless “something changed.”

“If Hillary Clinton gets elected, there will never be another male president.”
Soliciting Dilbert ideas
“By the way — anybody, who votes for Hillary Clinton, is fuckin’ dead to me.”
There are enough men, who themselves have been the subject of false accusations, who are going to vote for Trump for that reason alone
Scott uses the McMartin Preschool case as an example of how it is possible for Trump to be falsely accused by multiple women of being molested
Scott uses a recent event where a delusional woman left her husband and moved to Scott’s neighborhood because she believed that Scott had been communicating with her via his Dilbert comics (it’s not the first time it’s happened!)
Mass delusion is a common phenomenon — Scott puts odd of all of the women lying about Trumps unwanted advances at 40%
