The first Clinton/Trump debate is on Monday night, and MSNBC’s Chris Hayes passed along what he claims is a quote from an unnamed person connected to the Trump campaign:
Off-the-record Trump advisor: "Frankly we're almost 100% sure he's gonna just drop trow and moon Hillary. We're terrified."

This sounds like such a FAKE "drop". Definitely lowering expectations. Why is the media so easy to play? https://t.co/B4T0rQBpDp

Journalistic education: That's not off the record, that's called background/granting anonymity. https://t.co/ROM5Bhyytv

To be fair, saying things like this off-record to reporters is a good way to lower expectations. https://t.co/oDCwnrl5uZ

Just by reporting these unserious comments, journalists are effectively lowering the bar for Trump https://t.co/ICM1GKgjQk

With that said, what’s the worst fear of the Hillary campaign?
