Trump accuses Dems of rigging debates


Donald Trump is accusing Democrats of rigging the upcoming debate schedule because two of the contests are competing with NFL games — even though Democrats aren't in charge of scheduling the debates.



The debates on Sept. 26 and Oct. 9 coincide with prime-time football games.


I've done some searching around, and can't find anything about the Commission on Presidential Debates being biased - other than bias against including third parties in Presidential debates. The final two debates competing against NFL games, however, reeks of a Hillary operation, IMO.

Considering recent events. This is not hard to imagine.

Seattle's not playing.

So I'll watch the debates.

And I can only speak for Packers fans, in that they probably wouldn't understand the big words used in the debates, so no big loss.

That's the only way Trump knows how to "play this game" he got himself into...is to fight with lies and badgering of the other opponents.

Another tactic he likes to use is making up lies and outlandish ideas he thinks he can accomplish in order to persuade the low-informed people who vote republican against their better judgment.

His twitter rants and speeches to start fights is no longer shocking to me.

What IS shocking is the amount of people he has still supporting him.

Idiocracy is becoming a reality

sad

Dems don't play or watch football but for sure all male cheerleaders are with her.

Ha! The first game won't be an issue, as the two teams have basically regional followings, and that region is probably going to Trump no matter what anyway. The packers-Giants game features two teams with national followings. I wonder what the demographics say about that matchup? Do NFL fans tend to lean left or right?

Seriously though, this is a brilliant tactic from Trump.

Now we're talking about the debates weeks before they start!

Just a guess, but I think they tend to lean right.

He's clearly afraid to debate anyone that isn't a former Republican hopeful. If he'd ever attended any of his own lawsuits whether the plaintiff or defendant he might have earned an acceptable amount of tactics to be able to debate a lawyer.

I'd say they are like most people and don't care about politics 99% of the time, regardless.

Unless you're a Niners fan or a Packers fan.

then you're always looking for handouts.

Wow you peoples victim-hood status is really scraping the barrel bottom if this is a "Hillary operation"(oooh sounds scary).

Perhaps the individuals in charge of Presidential debates just don't consider children's games as consequential as electing the next leader of the free world.

So perhaps the football game never concerned them.

The fact that some inconsequential BS "game" is considered of equal importance by some is maddening & telling commentary at what ails this nation.

Well the Shehawks have gotten plenty of handouts from the refs the past couple of seasons, so....

I have a sneaking suspicion that Trump will refuse to debate Hillary because he knows she will shred him. This is simply his first step towards that end.

Yes, you are correct.

I will be shocked if she actually goes into debates. I suspect there will be an excuse not to attend or to send a surrogate.

That explains it...Patriots are just following the DNC's lead when it comes to corruption and cheating.
