Bernie to Debate Trump?

26 May

This could be fun. The Political whatnots and talking heads think this is a bad idea. I disagree. While Bernie is still in the race, I think he is in it more for the soul of the Democrat Party  to win the nomination at this point. Polls have consistently shown that a significant portion of Trump’s support would shift to Sanders should Trump be out of the race. Then again…Bernie may score a knockout.

Sanders camp on Trump debate: ‘We want this to happen’

The suggestion that Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump debate in California before the June 7 primaries would appear to be more than just a late-night joke.

“We want this to happen,” Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs told POLITICO on Thursday, when asked if the campaign would reach out to its counterpart, hours after Trump said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” he would be willing to debate the Democratic candidate if the proceeds from the event went to charity.

Within minutes of Trump’s remarks, Sanders tweeted, “Game on. I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7 primary.”

Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but senior adviser Sarah Huckabee Sanders told MSNBC that the prospect of the debate “just goes to show that Donald Trump is not afraid of Bernie Sanders nearly as much as Hillary Clinton is who refuses to debate Bernie.”

“If she can’t handle the guys in her own party, how do we expect her to take on foreign leaders that are probably much more aggressive than Bernie Sanders,” Huckabee Sanders added. “Whether it happens or not, I think we’re all waiting to see about that. But Donald Trump certainly is happy to debate Bernie Sanders, I think, at any point.”
