Scott Adams presumably thinks that things like this don't hurt the path of a "master persuader" to the Presidency. Well, I have just checked on his blog, and all he seems to think Trump needs to do is this:
To be fair, Trump scares the pants off of about one-third of the public.I am completely unconvinced. I think Adams himself is just a showman, milking this for all its worth.
So “risky” will hit home for those voters. The problem for team Clinton
is that Trump has complete control of his persona. All he needs to do
is act less risky for a few months to prove his campaign persona was all for effect. That process is well underway.
