Julian Assange had the last laugh on Tuesday when he trolled Trump supporters over alleged new damning Clinton information, and Infowars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was less than thrilled.
After suggesting for days that WikiLeaks would release new information during a news conference that would damage Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s prospects in November, Assange didn’t reveal anything new during the early-morning press conference.
Jones responded to the uneventful news, suggesting, “Julian Assange trolling the world is Hillary’s October Surprise. Julian Assange is a Hillary buttplug.”

Jones shared a video on YouTube where he reacted to the “shameful” Assange release. He said, “You said it would get her indicted!”
The Infowars host continued on his rant and added that he never actually trusted WikiLeaks anyway because it’s “so Leftist,” and suggested that Assange didn’t blow the lid on any new Clinton information because she may have offered him a deal.
He added, “I’m not in competition with Assange … I’m embarrassed, I feel chummed, I feel trolled.” In fact, Jones may have just been “WikiRolled.”
Trump approves of North Korea missile tests: ‘I have no problem’ because they’re just ‘short-range missiles’
On Thursday, in conversation with reporters, President Donald Trump said that he had 'no problem' with North Korea's new round of missile tests.
"Short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that," said Trump. "I have no problem, we'll see what happens, but these are short-range missiles. They're very standard."
The thought that short-range missiles would still be capable of hitting our allies in the region, like South Korea and Japan, does not seem to have occurred to him.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
