The Con vs. The Commie: Trump and Bernie Agree to Debate Without Hillary?

Hillary Clinton refuses to debate challenger Bernie Sanders , but that doesn’t mean there won’t be any debate.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night, guest Donald Trump told Jimmy Kimmel that he would be willing to debate Sanders, but only if  Bernie is willing to pay a certain price and donate the money to charity.

“If he paid a sum toward charity I would love to do that,” the bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor told Kimmel, bragging about the record ratings of GOP debates while crediting himself.

Bernie Sanders, a 74-year-old wild-eyed socialist, responded on Twitter — almost immediately — writing, “Game on.”

Hopefully, if money is raised, an entity other than the Donald J. Trump Foundation would be handling the money. Four months after a Trump fundraiser for veterans, the amount raised is under dispute, as is whether all funds have been properly distributed.

Moreover, the Trump campaign can’t seem to get its story straight — a shocker — with Trump himself bragging about $6 million being raised, but the campaign saying the amount is significantly less.

Meanwhile, some veterans are upset over Trump’s broken promises and being used as pawns for the New York real estate tycoon’s attempts as self-promotion.

It’s doubtful Trump would debate Sanders one-on-one, but it would be interesting, or at least entertaining TV. Trump previously said that he couldn’t wait to take Ted Cruz on one-on-one, but then ducked several Cruz debate challenges. We shall see.

Here’s the clip from the Kimmel interview in which Trump said he’d be willing to debate Sanders if the price is right:
