Trump Backs Down to Bernie; Won’t Debate After All

Another epic flip-flop by Donald Trump, aka: Don the Con, has just been announced by the Trump campaign.

Less than 48 hours after announcing that he would debate socialist Bernie Sanders one-on-one without Hillary Clinton, the bloviating billionaire now says he won’t.

On Wednesday, during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the reality TV actor said that he would “love” to debate Sanders if he agreed to donate proceeds raised towards charity:

“If he paid a sum toward charity I would love to do that.” 

But on Friday, after Sanders accepted the challenge with a “game on” tweet, and serious commitments like The Young Turks‘ $1 million offer began to roll in, Trump sang a different tune, again writing checks that his big mouth can’t cash:

“As much as I want to debate Bernie Sanders — and it would be an easy payday — I will wait to debate the first place finisher in the Democratic Party, probably Crooked Hillary Clinton, or whoever it may be.” 

Don’t worry folks, they’re only words, big words, the best words, and they mean absolutely nothing. “Don the Con” strikes again.
