Radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones expressed his vocal and extremely specific disappointment with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s failure to deliver his promised “October surprise” on Tuesday.
The Wikileaks founder has long promised an “October surprise” about Hillary Clinton. Alex Jones, for one, was not impressed with what Assange delivered.
“We’ve been Wikirolled,” Jones announced, before launching into an impromptu rendition of the chorus of “Move Bitch,” a song by rap artist Ludacris.

“I mean, you get out the way, man!” Jones concluded.
It was unclear who he was addressing with the verse.
Jones went on to compare Wikileaks unfavorably to the Drudge Report, a conservative link aggregator site.
“Drudge breaks stuff every day! I mean, this is why we kissed this guy’s ass,” he complained, presumably referring to Assange.
“This is Hillary’s October surprise,” he concluded, doubling down on his apparent theme of choice. “Julian Assange is a Hillary butt plug.”

In a video address early Tuesday morning, Assange announced that Wikileaks plans to release documents relevant to the 2016 U.S. election over the course of the next 10 weeks.
Assange originally planned to make the announcement from the balcony of the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he has lived for the past four years to avoid extradition to Sweden to face sexual assault and rape accusations. On Friday, however, NBC’s Jesse Rodriguez reported that the in-person announcement had been cancelled due to “security concerns.”
