In a recent blog post, Dilbert creator and crafty political pundit Scott Adams described how President Trump is unique among modern Commanders-in-Chief.
Trump is a systems thinker, not a straightforward goal-setter, explains Adams (in photo).
Using the Obamacare debate as a basis, the cartoonist – who successfully predicted Trump’s 2016 electoral victory before almost any other media figure – explains how the President is using an elaborate system of persuasion to eventually improve Americans’ health care and repeal the Affordable Care Act.
Because Democrats are seeking more government control of health care, while right-wing Republicans are seeking total repeal of all government regulations, it would be impossible for a normal goal-oriented President to foster a bill that will pass in Congress.
Instead, after Paul Ryan’s American Health Care Act failed to pass, Republicans will now be more likely to compromise, while Democrats will be grateful for any repeal-and-replace bill that isn’t far-right, writes Adams.
