The author of the Dilbert comic and Trump interpreter Scott Adams took to his Twitter page this morning to decry FAKE NEWS to his thousands of followers. He insisted that Democrat Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam, who defended a bill that would allow late term abortions and discussed killing babies if they survived the process, was fake.
Except that is exactly what Northam was discussing. Scott Adams asks that you believe his propaganda over your own eyes and ears:
The money quote from the video: “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”
Northam while proposing the murdering of a baby, attempted to make it seem like it was as normal and routine as brushing one’s teeth.
Adams had more than a few responses to his “this is fake news!” statement, one response thread in particular got to the root of the issue:
Agreed. He is discussing parents and physicians deciding whether or not they want to withdraw care for a newborn.

What does withdraw care for a newborn mean?

What happens when a newborn survives a late term abortion and doesn’t receive care, Scott?
What happens, Scott?
Update: Scott Adams Doubles Down
Scott Adams doubled down with his support of Northam’s comments on infanticide, insisting that the governor’s written non-clarification clarification somehow negates his earlier statements.
Adams asks how many people “fell for the fake news”
How many of you fell for the fake news that the governor of Virginia was in favor of killing babies after they are born? https://t.co/TOleCFEAaF
