We are liberating towns out in Long Island. We are liberating. Can you imagine in this day and age? In this day and age in this country, we are liberating towns." "This is like from a different age. We are taking these people. They don't shoot people because it's too fast and not painful. They cut them up into little pieces. These are animals. We are getting them out of here. We are throwing them in jail, throwing them out of the country. We are liberating our towns," Trump said to cheers. "After years of defending other countries borders, can you believe we fight for other countries? We want to defend their borders. We're finally defending our own borders," Trump said.

Scott Adams: Rep. Jackie Speier Must Have Real Evidence That President Trump Is Crazy, Right?

RealClear - Wed, 08/23/2017 - 02:33
'Dilbert' cartoonist and author of the upcoming Trump-themed book, Win Bigly: Persuasion in a World Where Facts Don't Matter, Scott Adams discusses California Rep. Jackie Speier's claim that the president's "erratic" behavior should be grounds for removal from office. Adams and Speier both live/represent the San Fransisco Bay Area. Related Video: Rep. Jackie Speier: Trump's "Abusive" Language About Charlottesville Should Be Grounds For Removal From Office SCOTT ADAMS: Let us watch together as she makes the case that the commander-in-chief is batshit crazy, and see how she comes off on this... She looks like a reasonable person. Speier appeared with CNN's Jim Sciutto Tuesday afternoon to discuss her tweet calling for the president to be removed from office, persuant to the terms of the 25th Amendment: POTUS is showing signs of erratic behavior and mental instability that place the country in grave danger. Time to invoke the 25th Amendment.— Jackie Speier (@RepSpeier) August 16, 2017 SCOTT ADAMS: What about the evidence? Hold on? Her evidence of his craziness is that he knows how to negotiate and has successfully moved North Korea? Is that her evidence that he is crazy? Because a less generous person would say that she is stupid, or just... that she doesn't know how negotiating works. I'm sure she has more. It is not like she has one crazy-ass reason for removing the president of the United States -- she's not going to depend on stupid reasons that are transparently stupid. So I know she must have good reasons, we know they're coming up, let's watch them together. About North Korea, Speier said: "There is a growing mountain of evidence that the president has been very erratic. Has shown mental instability. It was crystallized last week with the combination of his comments about 'fire and fury' that he offered up against Kim Jong Un in North Korea and how we would 'take him out.'" SCOTT ADAMS: Wait, wait, wait? His 'back and forth' on Charlottesville? That's it? So, the second piece of evidence is that he went 'back and forth' on a topic that people kept asking him about? I think we all watched him do a bad job of saying what people wanted to hear, and then fix it, and then do a bad job and fix it, but didn't we all know exactly what is going on, which is that he is not good at [emotional public statements]? I guess that is the second piece of evidence that he is crazy, not her. He's definitely crazy, because he knows how to negotiate and he answers questions on a topic always consistenly, but he worded it differently. That's the important thing, he never changed his mind, he just didn't word it the way people wanted him to. He wasn't agreeing with people quite as hard as she thought he should. So the two pieces of information is he knows how to negotiate well, and he didn't agree with everyone else as hard as he should agree. But she must have more. It is not like she is going to rely on that to remove a sitting president. That would be crazy. So let's see the good evidence, here it comes: About Charlottesville, Speier said: "He really became almost abusive, in calling people out, when he was telling from his soul what he thought about the Charlottesville incident." SCOTT ADAMS: Wait? he was talking from his soul? Is the soul in any way connected to the brain? It is a little vague, but let us say he was talking from his soul, and she could detect that from a distance. Because she does have soul detection abilities -- that is one of the things you get when you're a member of Congress... She's saving the good stuff for last... "There have been a lot of people behind the scenes talking about his instability, in Congress, for some time now," Speier said about the president. SCOTT ADAMS: "A lot of people behind the scenes." She'll name them probably? I'm sure they're people who are supporters of the president, or is she referring to things she has just sort of heard? It couldn't be that, because you wouldn't remove a sitting president because people gossiped about him behind the scenes... So she must have more than that, I don't want to minimize it. She's got good proof that the president is crazy. Watch... Speier also said: "If you go back in time six years, and watch interviews he gave then, when he could put a full sentence together, but now tends to put a few words together and go off into another sentence unrelated to the first. It is an indication to me that there is some trouble there." SCOTT ADAMS: Okay, so he's got this short simple speaking style, which every expert on linaguistics has identified as a superior method of communicating with the public --because they don't like the complexity-- So right around the time he got serious about running for president, it seems like he dropped the professor-speech and turned to man-of-the-people speech? It is because he is an expert on branding, and smart, and strategic, OR crazy? She must have more, let's go. You probably missed the part where she was telling us of her medical credentials to evaluate peoples' mental states by the way they speak in public, you might also notice that what she just mentioned, you've seen me do a thousand times... Stop, say something, move on to something else, say something that isn't really a sentence, and you know exactly what I mean... Sometimes it is about the images and the words, and the associations, and the feeling and the pace, and the percussion, and the pacing and the leading. There is a lot to this. But if you don't know any of this stuff, it looks like he is crazy. But she's just warming up, right folks? She must have evidence, because what she said so far is just awkward and embarrassing and crazy if that is all it was. I know she wouldn't go on television wearing those clothes and hat haircut, and then act crazy? That's not going to happen? ... Wait? Did we leave the evidence phase and jump to the conclusion phase? Let's see if I can put her case together for her, in case she runs out of time. It seems like the evidence for removing a sitting U.S. president, commander-in-chief in a time of war, duly elected through a process we all trust and find credible (give or take a Russian). So this is her case, it is a strong one: 1. President Trump used the phrase "fire and fury," which is a well-known negotiating technique that she doesn't know. It was visual. It was an indication that we would possibly knot act rationally. It caused North Korea to buckle for the first time ever, and suddenly things are happening. It is in the news -- she has probably seen some of that news. 2. There was also the fact that he speaks in the most effective way for a politician who is a populist to speak, and the way I speak, so that is pretty good evidence that he is crazy. 3. There are the people who were not identified talking about the stuff that wasn't explained in places and times we don't know. So, if it was only one thing we didn't know about that, I would say that is probably not persuasive. But there are like four or five things we don't know about that. Put them all together, and "where there is smoke there is fire." I bet I could get a conviction on that alone. 4. Next there was -- was that it? Did I miss any of her evidence? Did she only have three things? Oh! His soul. There was the evidence she had used her Congressional soul searching technology to reach out from a distance, penetrate his outer body, his exoskeleton, his shell, whatever he's got going on on his head and hair. She got through all of that with her soul-detection technology to lo0k past his words --words like "unify the country" and "we're all on the same team," and "stop hating." She can penetrate the words... into the soul... through the words the person is speaking, through their actions... rummages around in the internal organs... And read the special soul language before it is even translated into English. And then she puts that together with her bad understanding of negotiating, her bad understanding of good communications style, and then adds the people who are unnamed in places and times we're unaware. If you looked at each of those individually, you'd probably say to yourself that that is not very persuasive. And that is why you don't look at it indiviually, you've got to put this stuff together, and accumulate it. Once you accumulate it, that is a pretty soid argument for President Pence, if you know what I mean?
