‘I stayed up all night for this?!’: Trump fans seethe after WikiLeaks’ #OctoberSurprise is a bust

Published

on

WikiLeaks promised to release new information that would shake up the presidential race on Tuesday — but instead, it didn’t reveal anything new and founder Julian Assange spent part of his media conference plugging his new book.

Donald Trump fans had expected Assange to effectively end Hillary Clinton’s campaign this week after top Trump ally Roger Stone promised that Clinton would be “done” after WikiLeaks’ big reveal:

Because of this, they were understandably furious when Assange revealed nothing new about Clinton, and he seemed to throw cold water on the idea that any revelations he had in store would destroy Clinton’s campaign.

“There’s been a lot of misquoting of me and Wikileaks publications,” Assange said when asked if he believed his work would end Hillary Clinton’s political career.

Below, we’ve collected some of the rage-filled tweets from angry Trump fans who actually stayed up into the early hours of the morning to watch Assange deliver a big, fat nothingburger:

Even Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist who has been one of Assange’s biggest backers in the United States, fumed at him for using his much-hyped event to plug his book.

“You said it would get her indicted!” he fumed in a video released shortly after Assange’s media event ended. “You kept hyping that it was coming out at any time! Then you told sources that I’ve talked to that it was coming out today and it would not be disappointing. And instead, you released… nothing!”

The Kurds have already rejected Trump’s ceasefire deal: Fox News reporter

Published

on

The military alliance defending ethnic Kurds in northern Syria has already rejected a purported "ceasefire" agreement being touted by President Donald Trump.

According to Fox News foreign correspondent Trey Yingst, the Syrian Democratic Forces are "rejecting the ceasefire" because it "achieves Turkey’s original goal of moving Kurds from the border and having them give up heavy weapons."

Yingst went on to say that Trump's deal with the Turkish government would essentially force the Kurds to give up territory that has for years been their home.

Not surprising that the SDF is rejecting the ceasefire.

Published

According to Turkey, President Donald Trump's so-called ceasefire in Syria isn't actually a ceasefire.

"Turkish FM Çavu?o?lu just now: 'We will suspend the Peace Spring operation for 120 hours for the PKK/YPG to withdraw. This is not a ceasefire,'" tweeted Turkey correspondent for The Economist.

According to Vice President Mike Pence, the ceasefire will take place for just five days. It's unclear what will happen after those five days are up.

CNN's Matt Hoye noted the Turkish foreign minister's comments came around the same time that Trump was praising the deal.

EU and Britain just struck a Brexit deal — here’s what’s in it

Published

on

"Fair and reasonable." That's how both Britain's Boris Johnson and the EU describe the new draft Brexit deal reached Thursday after days of intense haggling.

Here's what's in the accord -- and what each side gave up to get there.

- Northern Ireland -

Arrangements for the UK province of Northern Ireland were the trickiest part of the new deal, and the core of what has changed since last year's withdrawal agreement, which was rejected by British MPs.

The new protocol stipulates that Northern Ireland remains in Britain's customs territory, but in practice there would be a sort of customs border between the province and the mainland.
