The problem is that Hillary Clinton does not make the debate schedule. This is a function of the Commission on Presidential Debates, a nonpartisan group that, of course, includes members of both parties. The CPD factsplained to the Trump campaign that it had “announced the number, dates and sites for the 2016 general election debates in September 2015,” nearly a year ago; it is not something Hillary could have been responsible for even had she the power. It also pointed out that, “The CPD did not consult with any political parties or campaigns in making these decisions.” [Source]
The NFL is pushing back on Donald Trump's claim that he received a letter from the football organization over the presidential debate schedule, tweeting out a denial Saturday evening.
Brian McCarthy, an NFL spokesperson, sent this message on Twitter: @mikesisak @alexweprin While we'd obviously wish the Debate Commission could find another night, we did not send a letter to Mr Trump. — Brian McCarthy (@NFLprguy) July 30, 2016
Trump, in an interview with ABC News earlier this week, complained about the three presidential debates, two of which are scheduled for the same night as NFL games.

And with just one "tweet" Trump gets loads of free press and gets people talking about Him and evil Hillary.
I'd say that's pretty brilliant!
He even gets people who don't like him to create threads about him.

There is already a thread on this. Do a search. Don't need another Trump bashing even if you are eager to do jabs under the belt.

And more people thinking he's a dumb ass who knows nothing about how the schedules are set and a liar claiming to get letters.
