Trump triggered massive cognitive dissonance and confirmation bias on both the left and the right. We're hardwired to respond to emotion, not reason. We might listen to 10 percent of a speech - a hand gesture here, a phrase there - and if the right buttons are pushed, we decide we agree with the speaker and invent reasons to justify that decision after the fact. The point isn't whether Trump was right or wrong, good or bad. Win Bigly goes beyond politics to look at persuasion tools that can work in any setting.

Scott A presents some interesting ideas. The messages are engaging and can appear biased and controversial, but Scotty boy provides convincing support. I enjoyed it, which is apparently half the battle; but since we are only a simulation anyway, it probably doesn’t matter. 😀
