Scott Adams: Hillary is hiding a major health problem



Scott Adams, creator of "Dilbert," has absolutely nailed the Trump presidential run in a way Krauthammer, Will, and Everyone Else In D.C. have not.

Now has he figured out Hillary as well ?

From Scott Adams:
As regular readers know, I'm a trained hypnotist. And to me, Hillary Clinton looks as if she is hiding a major health issue. If you read Malcolm Gladwell’s book, Blink, you know that so-called “experts” can sometimes instantly make decisions before they know why. In my case, I am going to make an “expert” hypnotist prediction about Hillary Clinton without knowing exactly which clues I am picking up, or whether I am hallucinating them.
Prediction: I’ll put the odds at 75% that we learn of an important Clinton health issue before the general election. That estimate is based on my own track record of guessing things about people without the benefit of knowing why. I think Trump is picking up the same vibe. He has already questioned Clinton’s “stamina.”
We shall see.

It also is interesting that Adams sees Trump as beta-testing certain messages. Other people pay Frank Luntz to put together a focus group. Trump uses the whole world as his.

  1. It's funny you should post this item today, because I said the same thing to my wife just an hour ago after I saw 4 or 5 video clips of Hillary on the campaign trail and at her announcement that husband Bill would be going to NH for her. She appears to have gotten truly as big as a house. While I suppose the videos might be at fault, making her look unflattering, nonetheless it appears to me she's recently put on an enormous amount of weight around her waist and buttocks area....which may explain why she she has taken up waddling like a penguin when she walks The drastic change in her appearance cannot be disguised by the tent-like clothing she now favors. I was truly shocked to see how HUGE she's gotten. This has to be the result of some underlying (and thus far undisclosed) health problem, which she's trying to hide with that strange wardrobe of hers.

    1. At least she has enough padding to ride a hover board without having to worry about falling.

    2. I remember the first time I saw Jerry Lewis after he ballooned due to some medical condition. Perhaps it's like that with Hillary.

    3. Prednisone, for one, will cause swelling, bloat.

    5. I'm just speculating, but I wonder if this is related to her long bathroom break during the last debate, which was the reason she walked back onstage late. She reportedly refused to go into the restroom until a female reporter had exited. Is she just really fastidious, was she embarrassed about potential noises, or was there some problem that would have given away her illness? If the last is true, I'm not sure what that would be, though (vomiting? colostomy bag? other?).

    6. Someone mentioned an insulin pump as a reason for the tent. I've also heard that she had a concussion when she fell. Where there's smoke, there's fire.

  2. I was saying to my partner just two hours ago that Hillary appears to have gotten wet and is melting.

  4. Donald Trump has been merchandising himself for the past 35-40 years. This presidential run is nothing new to him.

    Oh, a bullshit artist. Did you bullshit yesterday? Did you try to bullshit yesterday?

    1. Scott Adams bullshits daily as his day job, writing the very popular cartoon, Dilbert. He also says explicitly that if you take him seriously, there's something wrong with you. In other words, he's taking Jon Stewarts schtick of clown nose on/off at convenience and moving it to the next level.

  6. As much as we might hope for that incompetent, power-grubbing, mendacious harpy to drop dead, counting on it is far too optimistic. We can't settle for Trump, who is the only person on the GOP side who is odious enough to get Bernie elected.

    1. Enjoy watching you choke on it in public. More, please.

    2. Have to say, the more I see Trump, the more I like him.
      Kind of the opposite of Hillary, or Bernie (S)

  7. Hillary craves power. Short of death, there is no way she stops or steps aside.

  8. I never expected Hillary to actually run for President. I assumed she'd just keeping from making any statement until she'd milked enough donations to the clinton foundation. Then she'd announce that she just couldn't do it.

  9. My wife has believed for some time that Mrs. Clinton has health problems; having worked with the elderly has given her a sense of older people having health problems. Bill Clinton saying it took her 6 months to recover, different from the campaigns talking points, adds to that belief she has health problems. Rumor is that she had a brain aneurysm. Rumors are just that, but she does seem to lack stamina. Concussions, as viewed from my sports days, didn't take that long for a recovery as I personally found out; granted those people/I were much younger.

  10. With Hillary taking in almost $1,000,000 daily in campaign contributions, she's not going to leave the field any time soon. All that money will end up in the Bill and Hillary and Chelsea Slush Fund eventually. There's no one who is going to question where the money went when it goes. Especially if she leaves the campaign trail due to health reasons.

  11. My wife, nurse of 47 years (8 in oncology), thinks it's a tumor.

    Others say stroke, a couple of bumps on the noggin.

  12. She's in unless gets indicted ro something equally disastrous.

  13. Many times after a significant head injury, there will ultimately be diminished brain functioning/dementia. It seems that the chemical balance in the brain is negatively affected somehow. In my father's case oxygen flow to his brain was lessened to the point that he died. His change in intellectual functioning was very noticeable a year or two after his accident.

  14. I'm sure the media will be all over her health issues throughout the campaign and will run all kinds of op-eds urging voters to vote for the healthy Republican.
