If I were Trump, I'd find campaign issues other than "crooked" and "bad judgement" to run against:

"crooked" - Under investigation for fraud, probably soon to be under investigation for bribery to get earlier fraud investigations squashed.

"bad judgement" - Three wives, four bankruptcies.

Clap your hands everybody
If you got what it takes
'Cause I'm Kurtis Blow and I want you to know
That these are the breaks

Brakes on a bus brakes on a car
Breaks to make you a superstar
Breaks to win and breaks to lose
But these here breaks will rock your shoes
And these are the breaks
Break it up break it up break it up!

They've zoomed in on the mechanism for decision making. That says nothing about free will.

If they find a mechanism for decision making in bullfrogs, will they conclude that they have free will?

If the relevant structures in a human are damaged, will they conclude that the person does *not* have free will? Not hold them accountable for crimes?

And of course it's well known that alcohol, other chemicals, even magnetic fields affect our decision making. Are those also part of the mechanism of free will?
