What happened to the October Surprise that was destined to finish the Trump Campaign?
By Doug Book, editor
Did anyone else notice the absence of an election-changing October surprise registered by the Clinton Campaign (or surrogates) against Donald Trump?
I don’t know about you, but I was a little concerned going into the last month of the election, having read claims by any number of self-described, former Trump “associates” who suggested they were in possession of THE damning audio/video which would effectively end the billionaire’s campaign. Not that Donald Trump is an evil guy, but it stands to reason that an individual so consistently in the public eye might have done or said something he would not want carried on page one of the New York Times. I’ve never committed murder but neither have I led a completely blameless life. How many of us have?
And one thing is certain—if Mr. Trump had at any time committed the slightest offense, the gravity of that behavior would have been magnified one hundred fold as the particulars were broadcast endlessly from coast to coast.
Yet the only organized assault against Trump consisted of the publication of some crude, locker room language from years ago. (The women who swore they had been sexually assaulted by Trump turned out to be paid operatives of the far left.)
Isn’t it extraordinary that political enemies who accused Donald Trump of racism, sexism, bigotry, xenophobia, homophobia and anti-semitism were unable to produce—or it seems, even manufacture—the evidence necessary to support their claims?
Hundreds—perhaps thousands—of the best diggers of political dirt in the world were unable to discredit a 70 year old man who has spent the majority of his life in the public eye!
A pretty remarkable individual, our next president.
