Rethinking This Weekend

This past weekend, we saw an attack on Trump, from what we have to assume are surrogates from the Hillary campaign.  We assume that she approved the attack simply because if she didn't approve it, the attack would not have gone forward.

I've just read Scott Adams blog post, and I tend to agree with him.  The media is in the bag for Hillary, they only give Trump coverage because they are forced to because he is the "anti-Hillary".
I assume that publication of this recording was okayed by the Clinton campaign. And if not, the public will assume so anyway. That opens the door for Trump to attack in a proportionate way. No more mister-nice-guy. Gloves are off. Nothing is out of bounds. It is fair to assume that Bill and Hillary are about to experience the worst weeks of their lives. 
Adams goes on to posit that Hillary may have picked the wrong battle with the wrong opponent.  Trump is not known for backing down in a fight, and if Hillary wants to make the next 30 days about marital fidelity and locker-room talk, she might want to check her own husband before she lets her attack dogs loose.
  If nothing new happens between now and election day, Clinton wins. The odds of nothing new happening in that timeframe is exactly zero.
Trump showed up at the debate last night with some of the women that Bill Clinton sexually abused. I bet Hillary was totally amused at that little detail.

None of this was Trump's idea.  Hillary brought the scandal to light, but it's now Trumps to capitalize on.
