THE ULTIMATE STRATAGEM

This is the stratagem a person should use as a last resort when his or her arguments are no longer sufficient to win the debate.

This stratagem consists of attacking the opponent personally, with the aim of undermining his person rather than his arguments.

This can obviously irritate the opponent and destabilize him or her, but the reason why it's risky to use this technique is that personal attacks can be rightly criticized.

EXAMPLE

"Such a nasty woman." (D. Trump to H. Clinton, Oct 2016)
