Scott Adams Shocks MSNBC By Predicting Trump Win; Suggests ‘Road Map’ for Coronavirus Home Testing
Breitbart ^ | 10.21.2020 | Joel B. Pollak

Dilbert cartoonist-turned-political Scott Adams stunned MSNBC viewers on Monday by predicting, on the air, that President Donald Trump would win re-election.

On Tuesday morning, Adams had practical advice for Trump: announce a “road map” towards making cheap home tests for coronavirus universally available.

Adams noted an article at Reason.com explaining that technology for cheap coronavirus home testing is being developed. Reason’s Ronald Bailey estimated that every American could eventually be tested, every week, at a total annual cost of $20 billion:

It would cost around $20 billion to provide 330 million Americans with rapid at-home test kits costing $1 each for weekly use. Given that the federal government has already borrowed $3 trillion in response to the pandemic and appears interested in borrowing trillions more, that would be a real bargain. Such a testing regime “will stop the vast majority of transmission and it will cause these outbreaks to disappear in a matter of weeks,” Mina said. “This is something we can actually do at warp speed.”

The problem, Bailey explained, is that such tests are currently illegal: “It took Food and Drug Administration regulators until July to finally issue the agency’s template for approving tests that ‘can be performed entirely at home or in other settings besides a lab’ and without a prescription.”

Adams suggested that Trump would be “guaranteed” a win in November if he would address the problem, and create a one-page “road map” with a timetable for producing cheap, universal, weekly at-home testing:

He would need to produce a road map — a very simple road map — that says: here’s where we are, and by this date we’ll have enough tests that every person can get a test for a dollar at home, and you’ll have quick results.

Well, an evil person would. Democrats are very much ends-justify-the-means kind of people. Even if they could be convinced that the Hunter emails were real, and revealed massive corruption by Joe Biden, most of them wouldn’t change their vote.

If Trump were to lose, Adams believes, the coronavirus pandemic would be the reason — but it is something he can still do something about before Election Day.

Do what? Announce a program and roadmap with no basis in reality? And how does testing more signal an end to COVID?

“And how does testing more signal an end to COVID?”

I live in the Raleigh, NC area. They have these testing stations set up everywhere. They are not very busy. I do not understand what the point is. I am not going to be tested at one of these. I suspect that most of their customers are hypochondriacs.

LOL! I think that’s why he’s holding no more rallies, because nobody shows up!! This is a total repeat of 2016. Hillary didn’t hold any rallies as well, and just like today with Biden these ridiculous polls said she was ahead of Trump and we all know how that turned out.

I’ve always had a hard time with the “evil” claim and saw it as hyperbolic.

But I’ve become a believer. We’re looking at pure evil and, if one believes the spiritual realm exists, one can see where this is going. Buckle up!

I was with 2 people who were diagnosed 5-7 days after I was with them in group settings. 2 separate occasions. I immediately told them do not give my name. If I feel ill, I’ll see a doctor on my own. Both were feeling better within 4 days. I won’t get tested unless I’m sick

This is why he’s holding no more rallies, because nobody shows up. So how the hell can they claim he’s ahead in the polls?

The surprise to me is that MSNBC viewers were paying attention to Adams. He doesn’t hate Trump.

“Biden only did that to help the poor people!” :)

No testing needed as a new virus appears all the time.
No face masks needed either.
Get sick then go to a doctor and use the medicine the democrat party has banned.
