“Winning takes care of everything!”
Kristina Basham, the girlfriend of Dilbert creator and an avid Trump supporter Scott Adams, on Wednesday tweeted photos of the happy couple vacationing in Hawaii – and people couldn’t take it.

Most commenters expressed support or straightforward jealousy of Adams, 61, for dating a 30-year-old woman who looks good in a bikini.
But many others were seriously triggered.

Context: In 2015 Adams antagonized a portion of his audience by predicting that Donald Trump, then but a comical speck in the media’s eye, would be America’s next president. Trump’s mastery of the arts of persuasion — to which Adams himself lays claim — render him irresistible to the American voter, Adams claimed.
To EVERYONE, including all haters and losers, HAPPY NEW YEAR. Work hard, be smart and always remember, WINNING TAKES CARE OF EVERYTHING!

Twitter reax: Liberals’ scorn for Adams has since turned to outrage and loathing, which would explain some of the reaction to his vacation snaps. One Twitter user made the unlikely suggestion that Basham, whom Adams has been quietly dating since 2016, doesn’t know his views on Trump.
Just wait til she finds out that you think Trump is a master wizard.

Others found catharsis by noting the age gap between the two lovebirds, with someone noting that Adams is old enough to be Basham’s father.
Daughter & dad looking good….

Another Twitter used posited a further generational divide.

And, of course, there were a number of gold-digger accusations.
Yeah, we get it. You have a lot of money. 😆

But while Adam’s net worth is an estimated $75 million, Basham is more than just a pretty face. In addition to her modeling career, she is a multi-instrumentalist musician said to be worth some $3 million. In other words, they can both afford to ignore the “haters and losers.”
