Via MW: Place Your Bets: What's Trump's October Surprise?

https://www.emptywheel.net/2020/08/22/place-your-bets-whats-trumps-october-surprise/

It’s become something of a American tradition — candidates pull something out of their asses in October which resets the calculus by which swing voters calibrate their darts before they aim at the board of presidential candidates.

... List of past surprises ...

First three of many:
I think there will be weekly waves of “facts” from the ‘stuff ‘that Rudy has been fiddling with from Ukraine, Turkey, Italy, Vienna. Notice how he has been radio silent for the most part this summer ? Keeping his powder dry.

With August surprises unfolding, redwoods burning, maybe two hurricanes bearing down on the Gulf coast, still, my foggy crystal
conjures Nikki Haley replacing Pence in early October.

hmmm (scratching head)…Billy Barr announces the international Deep State/Pedophile ring has been busted, resulting in indictments of well-known public figures. Trump becomes God/King officially, his 2nd amendment people invade blue cities and incite senseless violence and oh, the election is called off, because well, it’s no longer needed.


What's your favorite POS that the orange turd and friends will pull?

2. John Durham, US Attorney.

Who has been the ace in the hole for Trump all along. They have been saving him for last.

13. I fear it will work

It’ll be the Comeyfication of the 2020 election. Indictments coming!, they’ll scream. More investigations! Then, after frightening enough low-information voters into the Republican camp, there will be a quiet little reversal of their claims, admissions that there was nothing there at all. But that’ll come too late for us, Trump will have stolen a second election.

At least these are my thoughts on my darkest days. We (the nation) can’t be that dumb to allow it to happen again, right? ...Right?

5. Godzilla is heading our way? Killer Shrews gnawing at the border wall? (I watch lots of old movies.)

I'm actually wondering if he might run out of October Surprises, well before October.

Well, that and his leaky administration anonymously tipping off reporters.

16. Yes! Absolutely hilarious

I first time saw the movie on one of those Friday night spooky movie shows - I think it was 'The Ghoul', out of Detroit. The second time was on MST3K.

7. Vaccine announcement, Durham report, Rudy's BS

I don’t think any/all will have much impact. The only thing that will move the needle significantly is if case/death rate drops dramatically, and if economy/employment improves dramatically.

In addition, if Trump waits until October for his surprises, half of Americans will have already voted.

8. FWIW Rudy teased an explosive drop last week

I think day of or day after Joe’s speech. I first saw it teased on a QAnon site on twitter.

Turned out to be “doctors“ opining on Joe’s cognitive decline. That kind of fizzled after he knocked it out of the park, ha.

11. I think Trump could be so far under water by October that it won't matter

Biden has run for VP twice. He has been vetted 6 ways Sunday. Because of the 24 hour news cycle, I don't see how there could be anything that explosive. Unless it's Trump's tax returns that show he doesn't really have that much money.

12. War with China

It'll have to be something incomprehensibly huge to get him re-elected.

But, I'm hoping for a resignation, followed by a quick blanket pardon from Prez Pence, for all past, present, and future federal crimes. Then it will seem like just a normal day in the Reptilian Party.
