CNN anchor Jake Tapper torched Dilbert creator Scott Adams over a racist rant Tapper said was “clearly preaching white supremacy” and slammed Elon Musk for weighing in on Adams’ side. Adams has been ostentatiously blowing himself up since last Wednesday, when a racist rant — in which he told viewers of his YouTube show “Based on the current way things are going, the best advice I would give to White people is to get the hell away from Black people” — went viral, and which he continued to expound upon even as newspapers dropped his comic strip along with blistering condemnations. (…) SCOTT ADAMS (VIDEOCLIP): So if, you know, nearly half of all Blacks are not okay with white people, according to this poll. Not according to me, according to this poll. That’s a hate group. The best advice I would give to white people is to get the hell away from Black people. JAKE TAPPER: A fairly racist statement, as blatant as it gets. CNN’s Oliver Darcy watching all of this. You know, Oliver, Adams, who we should note, came on The Lead in the early Trump era a few times. He’s been trending more and more hard right, for years now into some really bigoted terrain. But I guess this apparently crossed the line into self-immolation.
