Trump tweets: "Hillary & the Dems are trying to rig the debates"

As usual, Hillary & the Dems are trying to rig the debates so 2 are up against major NFL games. Same as last time w/ Bernie. Unacceptable!

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/759222916387069952

The Donald is shaking in his boots and is already laying the groundwork to not attend the debates!

1. Hell, you'd think the Abomination would want to hide the debates by scheduling them...

 

during NFL games.

If this crap is starting this early - one day after the convention - there is no way he's going to debate her.

3. As if he was planning to show up at any debate!

At this point, who does he think he's kidding?

Or is he merely being "sarcastic" again?

6. Hillary and/or the DNC do not schedule the debates...

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will participate in three general election debates from September through October, according to the schedule released Thursday by the nonpartisan organization that sponsors the debates.

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) announced the first debate will take place on Sept. 26, 2016 at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, while the second and third debates will occur on Oct. 9, 2016 at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, and Oct. 19, 2016 at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada. Though each debate will run from 9-10:30 p.m. E.T. without commercial breaks, debates will also be divided into different time segments lasting 10-15 minutes. This format builds upon the 2012 debates where longer segments allowed candidates to get through the specifics of their policy proposals.

"The CPD has a simple mission, to ensure that presidential debates help the public learn about the positions of the leading candidates for president and vice president," said the two CPD co-chairs. "These formats will allow an in-depth exploration of the major topics in this year's election."

In addition to the three presidential debates, CPD also announced the vice presidential debate will take place on Oct. 4, 2016, at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. Only moderators will be able to privately select the questions posed to the candidates featured at all of the debates. But, a group of uncommitted voters will have the chance to ask a few questions at the second presidential debate, which is styled like a town-hall meeting.

14. I truly hope there's no audience

I'm certain Hillary will mop the floor with him...in terms of sheer intellect and demonstration of grasp of the issues. However, Rump can erase all that if he packs the audience with his know-nothing cretins, and engages in a free-for-all where everybody whoops it up over every cheap shot on Hillary, no matter how unscrupulous. And then the M$M will just declare him the winner, based on sheer volume alone. Don't laugh...I've seen it happen before.

10. And who compared the debate schedule with the NFL game schedule and why?

 

As per usual, there is so much stupidity/insanity involved with his vile bile that it is mind boggling to normal folks.

19. Trump has all the ethics and morals of a hoodlum

He's the kind of guy who would fight a war and have thousands or millions of our young killed in order to protect his right to deceive and steal from people.

24. They were never on Sunday before

I work for a NBC station and we always aired Sunday Night Football - really no breaks.

So Sunday is a little strange for me.

Last time it was different

http://www.uspresidentialelectionnews.com/2012-debate-schedule/2012-presidential-debate-schedule/

Wednesday
October 3, 2012
Thursday
October 11, 2012 - VP
Tuesday
October 16, 2012
Monday
October 22, 2012

Now the last one was against Monday Night Football, so there is that!

30. Note I did say donnies priorities.

I think except for the idea he would be up on a stage it isn't a priority and he can grandstand. I don't for one minute think he considers anything more important then what he wants. His idea of priorities over debates could even include reading the latest edition of the national enquirer.

29. Read carefully. There is one phrase that Trump is really scared of

Longer segments to explain the specifics of their policy proposals. He has no
specifics and couldn't explain them in longer segments even if he did.

32. This is how he set up his scam

First the accusation of debate rigging without refute, then he will make it a meme, then he will deny the results of the debates claiming he was right about the rigging.
There was a time that "tweets" were what we called annoying people who were beneath the our dignity to dispute.

The co-chairman is former head of RNC. Half dems half repubs. Truman's whine that the dems rigged dates is absurd.

Im not saying this has anything to do with Hillary or the DNC, its just that it is kind of sill to go up against 2 NFL games. One game, the Packers and Giants I know for sure many wont be watching. Probably myself. Go Pack Go!
