Donald Trump is definitely feeling the devastating effects of Hillary Clinton’s super-successful Democratic National Convention that happened earlier this week.
Clinton’s DNC in Philadelphia was praised by Democrats and Republicans alike, and Trump noticed. Judging from a strange tweet his tiny orange fingers typed last night, Trump is terrified to face off with Clinton because he knows she’ll wipe the debate floor with him.
Trump’s tweet began with a whiny complaint about the timing of two of the future presidential debates that would take place between himself and Clinton. He complained that the debates were “rigged” by Clinton and the Democrats by scheduling them around two big NFL games, which Trump claimed had been the same case with the debate he was supposed to have with Bernie Sanders, but backed out of. With all of that being said, Trump might be implying that he intends to do the same this time, and wimp out of debating Clinton just like he did with Sanders! Check out the tweet below:
“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!”
First of all, Trump’s information is completely untrue (no surprise there) – Democrats do not set up debates, debates are set up by the Commission of Presidential Debates. The debates couldn’t have been rigged against him, because those dates were finalized last fall – long before anyone even considered Trump had a chance at becoming the Republican nominee. Trump seems to be worried that his ratings would be brought down by an NFL game, yet he constantly brags about how “huuggee” his ratings are.
Secondly, Trump seems to forget that it was HIS idea to debate Bernie Sanders. Months ago, Trump had challenged Sanders to a debate and even asked the Vermont Senator to raise millions of dollars in charity donations as a prerequisite. Trump severely underestimate Sanders, and when the Democratic candidate came through, Trump backed out. With all of that being said, this tweet might be the first sign that Trump is going to do the same thing with Clinton. The beauty of it is, people are already calling him out on it!
Trump can’t take the heat!
