    What the hell's happened to ABC News?

    I remember the good work they did long ago.

    Now they take the mutterings of Larry David, I mean, Bernie Sanders, and turns it into clickbait for anxious Democrats looking for some solace.

    For tactical reasons it does make total sense.
    Bernie Sanders would rather pull Trump with him in the grave by throwing anything against him that he has and let Hillary win than watching Trump become president.

    I don't support backing down from a public debate, but I understand why he did.

    Trump is clearly worried. He doesn't want take any chances that Hillary might not be his opponent.

    Absolutely!

    She is a dream come true for Trumpians.
    Bernie is much more threatening.

    But if Trump is as good as you say he is, why should he be afraid?

    He didn't say he's afraid.

    You said Bernie was more threatening. Threat implies fear. Again, if Trump is as great as you think he is, Bernie should be no threat.

    Recognizing a threat doesn't imply anything.

    Hildabeast is by far the worst candidate in history.

    Anybody would be a better opponent than her.

    You must be too young to remember Mondale or Dukakis. Yes, the Democrats nominated a midget in a tank.

    As I indicated the other day, I thought his proposition was interesting but with Bernie being ahead of him in the polls, he would have done himself potential harm to his candidacy. The numbers are pretty much in Clinton's favor, regardless of factors, and to get the superdelegates to change their minds might not be easy.

    Please justify the use of "Hitlary", which is as obscene as it is extreme. Most of us stayed awake during history class or even have the ability to use internet search engines to verify if you are telling the truth.

    It was stupid idea to begin with.

    Bernie has not locked down the nomination. He's not Trumps equal at this time.

    Wait till the conventions are over.

    Ain't that the truth. Bernie Sanders is a United States Senator who's faithfully served the people of Vermont in various capacities since 1981.

    Meanwhile, Donald Trump is just a white trash douchebag that hit the lucky sperm lottery.

    Exactly, Trump is the GOP's candidate. He'll debate the democratic candidate when they decide on one. He shouldn't worry about debating democratic primary candidates.

    Let the butthurt flow, but Trump is the GOP nominee, and Bernie is not the DNC nominee. There is no parity and it was not smart for Trump to suggest a debate by punching down.

    Wait till the convention is over.

    Mind you that debate would be awful for Hillary. It would be a wall of momentum behind Bernie.
