Press coverage of Julian Assange’s “damaging information” was big. Anticipation from Trump supporters was high. Drudge featured his Wikileaks press conference as the prime story for hours. Roger Stone declared that Hillary Clinton’s campaign would be finished by Wednesday.
On the 10th anniversary of Wikileaks, Julian Assange came out and revealed that they would be releasing documents in the future. Some will come later this week. That’s it. Hopes that Hillary would be destroyed deflated in the wee hours of Tuesday morning as Assange delivered a gigantic nothingburger.
Heat Street, which broke the story about Assange’s “October Surprise,” now says it’s delayed.

Many are upset, particularly those who thought this would be the wooden stake to drive into the heart of Madam Dracula:

Not surprised there are no major leaks at this hour, but Wikileaks should have told us in advance. #OctoberSurprise

Conspiracy theories are flying that somehow Hillary got to him with threats. Last time I checked, it was pretty difficult for a Presidential candidate to take out someone living in an embassy in the heart of London, but I guess we shouldn’t put anything past Hillary.

This isn't the same Julian Assange I've watched before.
He seems nervous, anxious.#OctoberSurprise

Of course, the best reaction is that of laughter. After all, this was a Rickroll and it was pulled off masterfully.

This goes to show that conservatives shouldn’t put their hopes in someone who has spent a decade trying to destroy the United States of America. There’s really nothing else to say about this Rickroll. Quite disappointing.
