Trump Reveals how Clinton, DNC are ‘Trying to Rig the Debates’

While Republicans are putting the blame on Debbie Wasserman Schultz, even top Democrats think there's something wrong with this picture.

Two months later, The Boston Globe also noted the Democratic primary debate schedule continuing to conflict with busy television nights, including NFL playoffs.

“Sunday night’s presidential debate should be the most closely-watched meeting of the party’s candidates this year. But once again, thanks to the Democratic National Committee’s schedule, debate viewership will not be even close to what it could have been,” noted The Boston Globe’s James Lindell. “It’s not new for debates to run on a busy weekend night. But this is by design: Of the six DNC-sanction debates, three take place on a weekend night. The last one took place on a Saturday night six days before Christmas.”

Even if what the Commission on Presidential Debates said is true, that doesn't mean there wasn't any foul play involved. People have known that Hillary Clinton would be running for the past couple of years.

In response to Trump's tweet, the Commission on Presidential Debates has claimed that the scheduling was done almost a year ago:


The Commission on Presidential Debates, which is reportedly nonpartisan, issued a statement responding to Trump’s tweet on Saturday, saying the debates had been scheduled nearly a year ago, explaining, it “announced the number, dates and sites for the 2016 general election debates in September 2015.”

“The CPD did not consult with any political parties or campaigns in making these decisions,” the organization declared.

Republican National Committee chief strategist Sean Spicer joined CNN Saturday morning, responding, “The entire system needs to be relooked at.”
