Author Scott Adams says turning on cable news this week is a great way to watch anti-Trump journalists “cling to their last shred of sanity.”

One of the first social commentators to predict President Trump’s electoral success — and the likely conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s 400-page report — said it was like watching people claim “10 times zero is one hundred” on CNN Thursday.

“I just turned off Chris Cuomo saying it’s absolutely proven that it was not a witch hunt,” Mr. Adams said. “The one thing Chris Cuomo says, you must acknowledge, is that now there’s no question about it. This was no witch hunt. “I get that there were some people who took some meetings, but once you looked at it all and you find no crimes from the president, or anybody really close to him that mattered, from the president’s perspective … it was a witch hunt. … They’re agitated and they’re angry that other people are suggesting that there wasn’t something here.”

Mr. Adams, the author of “Win Bigly: Persuasion in a World Where Facts Don’t Matter,” said the absence of any crimes charges issued against the president has prompted partisans to move the goalposts.

“There were so many bad things the president did in there,” he said while imitating cable news analysts. “He talked to people. He said things. He considered things. He considered things! Are you telling me that it doesn’t count that he considered things?”

“Apparently, anti-Trumpers are trying to cling to their last shred of sanity and the thing I keep looking at is the tone of distress when the CNN folks are trying to make their points,” the “Dilbert” cartoonist added. “They look deranged — just the tone, the way they have stress in their voice.”
