Here’s the real October Surprise: Trump is visiting the noted swing state of California to raise money with high-grade musical attractions like [checks notes]:”Surfin’ PMRC: Mike Love’s Not-So Loving Tribute to the Beach Boys”:
Issa, a Republican who retired in 2018 from his seat in California’s 49th District, said after the event that Trump’s message, “which is hard to understand in California,” was that in the swing states, his “momentum is starting to take him into the positive.” Issa is now running for the 50th District seat held until this year by Republican Duncan Hunter, who will soon serve time at a West Texas prison camp for conspiring to misuse campaign funds.
Trump was at “the top of his game,” Issa said, and joked around with host Palmer Luckey at the 28-year-old multimillionaire tech savant’s Lido Isle mansion. The Mike Love-led incarnation of the Beach Boys performed (cofounders Brian Love [sic with extreme prejudice –ed.] and Al Jardine disavowed the appearance, in a statement to Variety), and former Rep. Dana Rohrabacher and Jeff “Skunk” Baxter of the Doobie Brothers played guitar.
Apparently Lee Atwater could not be exhumed in time. Stay tuned next week for when the entertainment will be the Sammy Hagar, Ted Nugent, and Mike Huckabee-led incarnation of Van Halen. It will be a real free-from jazz exploration.
