Donald Trump Protests Debates Being Held During NFL Games

Donald Trump is protesting how two of the three presidential debates between him and Hillary Clinton have been scheduled during NFL games this fall. And he is accusing the Democrats and Clinton of wanting it this way.

In a tweet, the Republican presidential candidate said he thinks his rival pushed the Commission on Presidential Debates to schedule the televised showdowns at times where many of his supporters, like working class white men, might be watching football instead.

“As usual, Hillary & the Dems are trying to rig the debates so 2 are up against major NFL games,” Trump tweeted.

But the Commission said Saturday they did not “consult with any political parties or campaigns in making these decisions.” The organization announced the upcoming debates on Sept. 23, 2015.

Yep, once again someone is trying to keep Hilliary away from a free-for-all forum where she could be asked some hard questions which would be witnessed by millions in real time.

While I don't watch football, I agree with Trump. This is Clinton's way of trying to make sure not many people watch her debate because she's a liar and she knows it. They bank on minorities and men to NOT watch the debate because she has NO PLATFORM. No real solutions. She's just running on the fact she has a vagina. Nothing more.

While I'm all for a female president, I would never vote for a corrupt criminal which leaves her out! #NeverHillary!

No worry. It will still be watched by a lot of men and women. I want to see Trump rip her apart and show what she really is. (map)

I believe one of the games in question is NY Giants vs. Green Bay Packers. I believe it is a Sunday Night game. Eli Manning vs. Aaron Rogers will be a top, tough choice against Trump vs. Crooked Hillary. Trump is right about this and the debate should be changed so everyone can witness Trump spike this bitch in the end zone and drop kick her through the goalposts of life...

10:43....HE is scared? Is your IQ in single digits or what?

The only thing Trump is "scared" of is that millions of people will not see Hillary squirm and twist under a relentless and undeniable (remember what the FBI said about her, to begin with) litany of her lies, criminality, and imperious behavior.
If the Commission didn't bother to check with networks to see how the debate schedule would affect, or be influenced by, OTHER programs (like the wildly popular NFL games), then I submit they are also out of touch with the country (imperious again) and are too stupid to have that authority. Or maybe the bribe was too great to resist.....
The motives behind these actions are clear to everyone, even Hillary's team, but they don't care.
They don't care what you think (lets have the debate at 2AM on a Sunday night!!) or how it looks.
She dodged a PRISON TERM from the FBI! You think she's worried about what citizens think about her ducking a forum where her opponent is NOT a politician who NEEDS to kiss her butt for future favors??
He wouldn't need to do anything except show her public comments over any period of time. She is her own worst candidate and its too late for the Democrats to select another candidate. If the liberal case was strong, those debates would be held at 8PM on Wednesday night.
She can't say she needs to change anything, but also can't run on the record they've established. Ouch. I wouldn't want to debate anyone on it either. LOL.
Keep cheering.

1143 you sound like a moron! Why would he be scared? He wants to continually expose her lies and corruption to America. Frankly, the debate stage is the best way to expose such atrocities considering people like yourself are under-or not informed voters. Get a clue! 😂​😂​😂​

You may rest assured that Hillary's fingerprints and the DNC's can be found behind the scenes influencing this 'independent non-partisan' group. I don't uses lol, but on this one it's LOL!

Trump is correct. This is the same scam they ran on Bernie.

A lot of people in the bag for Hillary!

One doesn't have to be "in the bag for Hillary" to have doubts about Trump's performance against her in a debate. Without major coaching and knowledge of facts (not half truths and innuendos) she will easily be able to bait him into saying something so incredibly stupid he won't be able to recover, if he didn't manage to do that this weekend.
