The photos: On Sunday, Adams, 63, shared photos to social media of his wedding a day earlier to Kristina Basham, a 32-year-old model.
The reaction: While there were a number of well-wishers in the comments, others showed up just take shots at the age difference between Basham and Adams.

Luke O’Neil, a liberal journalist known for his “edgy” swipes at conservatives, made a father-daughter joke that earned a retort from Adams.
Some suggested Basham was in it for the money.
I wonder what kind of job you...oh.— Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) July 13, 2020
But Adams' defenders suggested the critics were simply envious.
I would not love her if she had your personality.— Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) July 13, 2020
Winning Bigly: Adams, a target of liberal ire ever since he predicted Trump’s 2016 election victory, is reportedly worth north of $75 million.
