Haters Devastated to Discover That Pro-Trump Dilbert Creator Has a Hot Girlfriend

Kristina Basham, the girlfriend of Dilbert creator and an avid Trump supporter Scott Adams, on Wednesday tweeted photos of the happy couple vacationing in Hawaii – and people couldn’t take it.

Most commenters expressed support or straightforward jealousy of Adams, 61, for dating a 30-year-old woman who looks good in a bikini.

 

But many others were seriously triggered.

 

Context: In 2015 Adams antagonized a portion of his audience by predictingthat Donald Trump, then but a comical speck in the media’s eye, would be America’s next president. Trump’s mastery of the arts of persuasion — to which Adams himself lays claim — render him irresistible to the American voter, Adams claimed.

 

At the time, Adams was widely lampooned. But after Trump won, he wrote a book, 2017’s “Win Bigly,” explaining how he managed to be so right.

 

Twitter reax: Liberals’ scorn for Adams has since turned to outrage and loathing, which would explain some of the reaction to his vacation snaps. One Twitter user made the unlikely suggestion that Basham, whom Adams has been quietly dating since 2016, doesn’t know his views on Trump.

 

Just wait til she finds out that you think Trump is a master wizard.

 

Others found catharsis by noting the age gap between the two lovebirds, with someone noting that Adams is old enough to be Basham’s father.

Daughter & dad looking good….

Another Twitter used posited a further generational divide.

Granddaughter?

And, of course, there were a number of gold-digger accusations.

Yeah, we get it. You have a lot of money. ?

— Chris (@ButterCorp) February 7, 2019

 

But while Adam’s net worth is an estimated $75 million, Basham is more than just a pretty face. In addition to her modeling career, she is a multi-instrumentalist musician said to be worth some $3 million. In other words, they can both afford to ignore the “haters and losers.”

Are there really people so invested in partisanship that they would be angered by a guy’s girlfriend? I think only the demented live in that world on either sides of the aisle

Not really. The Twitter quotes don’t back up the hacky article and title. It’s fake news.

Even assuming that other people who disagree with you are hyper partisan enough to get angry kind of makes one the partisan hack, no?

Correct. I’d even argue that you’d have to be hyper partisan to even find this.

Adams is hated because he predicted Trump in August of 2015. He was Ickes for that but was the first one to see the effectiveness of the linguistic killshot. 

 

Because he predicted the Arc of Trump from Trump=Hitler to “Trump is effective but I don’t like his policies”. One of our favorite SOL Trump haters is the perfect example of that. 

 

He created the idea of Trump thinking a dimension above the everyone else, which pissed off everyone else. That infuriated the haters who think Trump is a dope. 

 

As for suggestions the Tweets were not hateful, suggesting your chick is a daughter or granddaughter is both hateful and a sign of malignant jealousy.
