Trump threatens to block networks from hosting debates after Dems reject Fox

President Trump on Wednesday responded to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) refusing to let Fox News host a Democratic primary debate by threatening to "do the same thing" with other networks during the general election.

"Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate. Good, then I think I'll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates!" Trump tweeted Wednesday.

2. pumpkin head

 

You stupid idiot, you cannot dictate to the networks that they can or cannot air a program. If the republican party holds debates, they can say we won't debate on a particular channel (MSNBC anyone) but the current occupant of the WH can't dictate that no network can air debates. Jeez

3. That could actually be a good thing. Trump gets Fox News and the Democrats get all the rest.

 

Imagine Trump being self-confined to Fox News.

Meanwhile the Democrats are all over CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC.

5. Does anyone remember...

 

when the presidential debates were held by the League of Women Voters, a non profit, who invited the candidates, set the rules and arrange for television time?

The candidates either accepted or declined, none of this setting rules of what their candidate will or will not do.

6. We'll see if you even make it to the debates 45

 

I highly doubt it. You are getting impeached for the many crimes and horrible crap you have pulled as President. I will be a happy man when you are removed from office.

I remember vividly when I was chanting with the crowd "Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye" watching on TV when Bush transferred power to then President Obama. I don't know what I will do when this orange turd is removed one way or the other. I garauntee that I will dance when he dies.

7. I think this has more to do with him being a chickenshit than it does

 

authoritarian.

He's scared shitless of debating any of our candidates. Well, at least our Democrats anyway.
