Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump thinks the Democrats are scheming to schedule debates during NFL games so fewer people will watch.
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!

Trump has reason to be alarmed.
For months many Bernie Sanders supporters, and even some members of the media like CNN’s Brian Stelter, accused former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of holding debates on nights that would insulate Clinton from criticism.
“Sunday night is a terrible time to have a debate, because there are so many great shows on,” Stelter said at the time. “Don’t you think that is going to hurt your ratings? And isn’t it in your interests to have high ratings for these debates?”
Could the Democrats be looking to use the same tactic to protect Clinton again?
Social media thinks so.
Of course Hillary is trying to rig the debates. She doesn’t want people to see her cry when trump destroys her pic.twitter.com/tllKdUi191

Trying to Rig the Debates : Hillary wants to debate during NFL game so that her old cat-lady constituency will be the only ones watching.

@realDonaldTrump don’t let it happen. Refuse to join the debates unless they are visible to all people and not up against NFL games.
