Wondering if there's any more "bombshells" against Trump coming out?

More groping allegations? More hot mic stuff? law suits? anything?

1. Would be nice

Hopefully the campaign didnt shoot all of their ammo.

For some reason the lil john , uncle tom thing didnt gain much traction.

I would like to see one or two more bombshells for the coup de grace.

2. So far, the hits have just kept on coming

I'm sure there are things that the general public doesn't know that may yet be revealed.

Thirteen more days!!

3. I think (hope) anything huge about either candidate would have come out by now

Given how many people are voting early and the tendency of donors to pull back if they think their candidate can't win or has it locked up, I can't see why anyone sitting on a major October surprise about either candidate would have waited until now to release it.

To be honest, assuming there are no damaging revelations about HRC or some other game-changing event like a major terrorist attack, I don't really care if more comes out about Trump. If anything, I would rather nothing else come out about either so people have some time to actually focus on the issues and the candidates' respective qualifications. The more comes out about Trump at this point, the more the story is about Trump losing rather than Hillary winning.

Whether they will come out on Halloween or not is another story.

I would look forward to more accusers coming forward, or some irrefutable tape that takes Trump down and keeps him down.

28. It seems like none of the stories get traction

unless there's actual video or audio hard evidence of Trump himself doing something damaging.

It's strange to me that he could have any credibility left, when he tells so many blatant and obvious lies.

I would hope we have something extra salacious waiting in the wings just in case Assange thinks he can be the clever boy by releasing something on Nov 7.

the juiciest until about 7 days out. We need to be able to counter.

that have been waiting to come out. Somebody in the press (forgot who) had said that there were a couple of Trump bombshells waiting to come out, and then when the Billy Bush tape broke, she said on Twitter that it was NOT one of the big bombshells.

22. two nevertrump gop strategists have been saying this for the last week or two

rick wilson and liz mair.

wilson continues to keep hinting at a big story that will emerge before the final week of the campaign, perhaps even several big stories, and looks like it will be about trump. he also says it will hurt trump with his base, with many interpreting that to mean trump has not been as pro-life as he claims.

i really hope they have the goods on trump here and aren't just toying with his supporters. the clinton campaign needs to drop the hammer on trump if they have this information because the media is desperate to run with the wikileaks illegal hacking of the email.

27. That would hurt him with evangelicals who are tagging along for Pence

but, I think Trump's angry white working class base would be more upset about Trump on immigration, if it came out he flip flopped recently, or was on tape this year being ok with NAFTA or pro amnesty or something along those lines.

35. but he HAS flip flopped on trade

check out the ad hillary did on him from his letterman appearance. he has hired foreign labor for a long time. an article he wrote several years ago saying we needed to embrace globalization came out this week and didn't make a dent in the news media.

his "white working class base" only cares about his current hateful rhetoric, that he says what they feel, not what his actual stance on the issue has been or will continue to be in the future.

39. the NYT tape about the wall might be it,

During the primaries they kept mentioning there was some tape where he may have said he really isn't going to build a wall, where he also may've badmouthed his supporters.

32. like water off a ducks back

nothing seems to stick to him. He has admitted to sexually assaulting women, he's been accused by multiple woman of unwanted touching and forcefully kissing them. He won't release his tax returns, he lies constantly, hes bigly uninformed, he's a racist, a xenophobe, a misogynist, a racist, a bigot, a filthy pig, he's a total fucking disgrace. All we hear about is Clinton's emails and now the corruptness of the Clinton foundation.


The media should, with out any doubt, pound this guy into the ground for the pig he is. Gary Hart was disqualified as a Presidential candidate for messing around with a woman on a boat named "Monkey Business" Trump is a fucking sexual predator and an accused rapist of a 13 year old girl, yet this race is supposedly close.

It will have to be a very yugggggge bomb dropped in order to have any impact! Why this rape accusation of a 13 year girl hasn't been mentioned, well, it's flabbergasting!

40. Not true, Trump's numbers have tanked

over the past month. During September he pulled almost even, but after the first debate, where Hillary crushed him and introducted the Machado allegations, he melted down over the next two weeks culminating with the Access Hollywood tapes. He went from being about 1.5 points behind to being anywhere from 5 - 8 points behind.

There is more out there on him, and I just wish Hillary's campaign would've released it after the last debate, as to keep Trump drowning and blunt the effect of this Comey bullshit.

41. Liz Mair, GOP operative, credible and well placed says 2 bombshells coming

She and fellow GOP operative Rick Wilson have been communicating on Twitter. She says there are two huge Trump bombshells to come that are more explosive than anything that has so far come out. She describes them as very bad news for Trump. In one of her tweets she says one of the bombshells is related to a document that will be exposed. We'll see. Given that this broke today, any new Trump bombshells should wait until Tuesday or Wednesday, after the immediate smoke has cleared. You don't want it obfuscated amidst the swirl of a newly erupted bombshell.

42. this is what i am thinking as well

let people and the media get this out of their overreactionary system, by tuesday it will not be the lead story, then dump the ultimate oppo against trump on wednesday or thursday and let it be the dominant story heading into the final weekend.

i really don't want to get my hopes up on this but with it being trump i just know there's some insane clusterF waiting to emerge lol it's just a matter of whether the clinton people have it in their possession. i have a couple of theories about what this might be but we'll just have to wait and see.

wilson added tonight on twitter in reply to brian stelter that "we're not even close to the final surprise" and "the last weekend is going to be bonkers". this is in line with what he posted on wednesday "You guys, you know the BEST October surprises come the LAST weekend. But given there are SO many to be had..." i don't think that him and mair are both bluffing because it could really hurt their credibility moving forward as it pertains to this sorta stuff it seems like it's just about whether the clinton people also know any of this or if whoever does have it comes forward with it. we'll know soon enough if there is any fire to this smoke.

Like tomorrow? With early voting underway and some of the swing states swinging away from Hillary, wouldn't it be nice to have some Trump bombs out there?
