Dilbert creator and persuasion expert Scott Adams went on Real Time with Bill Maher this weekend to discuss Donald Trump’s mastery of persuasion.
Bill was hoping that Scott Adams would disclose how Trump can be defeated. Instead, Scott Adams told him Trump will win the general election in a landslide.
