‘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!”
