Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders Debate?


In this historical election cycle where the impossible becomes possible, Donald J Trump and Bernie Sanders look like they might be debating each other in California before the June 7 primaries there. Sanders had already accepted Fox’s proposal to debate Hillary Clinton, but after Clinton declined the invitation, Trump said he would debate Sanders with the caveat that the proceeds would go to benefit a Women’s Health charity. He set the price at $10 million after his conversation on the Jimmy Kimmel show on Wednesday night.

Senator Sanders tweeted out “Game on. I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7 primary.

It looks like ABC News, CBS News and Fox are all interested in what would appear to be a YUGE ratings bonanza. This would legitimize Sanders claim that he should be the Democratic nominee and may even sway Super Delegates his way. The optics of the Democratic establishment currently appear to be #NeverBernie with many of them feeling that Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren will magically swoop in should Hillary’s email server and pay to play scandals force her out. While this may force the party’s establishment to consider Sanders, it also looks like this would be a play for Trump to get his chance to woo Sander’s supporters. Of course it works both ways and Sanders would be getting his message out to Republicans.

During a Sanders rally in California Sanders said he would like to ask Trump why he thinks Climate Change is a hoax while the scientific community is almost unanimous that it’s causing devastating problems. He also asked Why does Trump think it is appropriate to be insulting Mexican’s, Latinos, Muslims and women and why he was a leader of the “Birther” movement.  We’re sure Trump has his own interesting perspective on those accusations and look forward to hearing them.

Bernie has some compelling views and is a strong proponent for Marijuana Legalization and drug reform (aside from his Tommy Chong snub ), but Trump is a 10th amendment advocate and has said he’s for letting the states decide.  If there is a debate between the two, we’d like to see them explore Marijuana reform and we’ve got our popcorn ready for that show.

(update:  Trump said today 5/27/2016, that the system is rigged and that he won’t debate the ‘second place finisher’! “Based on the fact that the Democratic nominating process is totally rigged and Crooked Hillary Clinton and (Debbie) Wasserman-Schultz will not allow Bernie Sanders to win, and now that I am the presumptive Republican nominee, it seems inappropriate that I would debate the second-place finisher…As much as I want to debate Bernie Sanders, I will wait to debate the first place finisher in the Democratic Party”)
