Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci says Donald Trump is going to get an October surprise next month when multiple administration officials resign and denounce him ahead of the election in November.
At this point, we all know that there will be some kind of October surprise that throws a wrench or two into Trump’s campaign, which is already struggling enough as it is considering the campaign is running out of money and Trump is down in the polls.
The question really is what will the surprise look like? Well, Scaramucci told CNN that the surprise will likely involve several White House officials unexpectedly resigning from their posts and denouncing Trump on their way out.
“I’ll make a prediction on the show, there will be people inside the administration that will denounce what is going on and resign prior to election day,” he said. “So this stuff is happening, guys. The question is, is it going to move the needle or not? And I believe that it is moving the needle and believe under the surface of this, the American people are exhausted by the president.”

“Do you know that?” CNN host John Berman inquired. “Do you know first-hand that there will be resignations before election day?”
And it seems that Scaramucci has some inside information.
“I do know that firsthand, yes,” he replied. “I don’t want to get into any more details than that, but there’s a further cascade of information and there are people that are in the process of denouncing the president. They’re still working inside the administration.”

Depending on who and how many officials denounce Trump and resign, it could be a huge October surprise that has some influence over voters. Of course, it will have little if any effect on Trump’s hardcore supporters, who would vote for him even if he openly admitted that he’s a Russian asset sent to destroy our country from within. BUt it could tip the scales among independent voters and those who are undecided. It could especially impact battleground states, where Trump is already losing to Joe Biden.
Let’s hope Scaramucci’s intel is correct.
