With the election increasingly being conceded by many to be over, a final siege of Trump is being laid as media attempts to get hold of any tape that will further embarass the embattled GOP candidate.
Like the crippled Bismarck, the Trump campaign continues to fire away absorbing countless rounds as it readies to slip into the murky deep in four weeks.
The end doesn't seem in doubt as major media run a stead drumbeat of news stories and op/eds taking him down.
Meanwhile, speaking in Pittsburgh yesterday, Mr. Trump vowed more exposure of the Clintons if more video of him is released.
Efforts to access out takes from The Apprentice have been rebuffed, but someone need only transfer a file to the WaPo and it's off and running.
Meanwhile Hillary Clinton is being declared winner of Sunday's debate despite Mr. Trump's aggressive performance and the one remaining debate holds little significance.
Ratings for Sunday were down, as the public seems to be losing interest in the comical and seemingly over race for the White House.
For Mrs. Clinton, best to play it safe and let others vie to fire the last round into the listing Trump ship. Mrs. Clinton will come out of this diminished as well, but still afloat.
