Donald Trump says the fall debate schedule is "unacceptable," raising the specter that he may try to skip them.
In a tweet on Friday night, Trump incorrectly said that Hillary Clinton and the Democrats are "trying to rig the debates."
In fact, the fall debate schedule was determined almost a year ago by the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, a private group made up of both Republicans and Democrats.

Whining already. Hard to blame him. He has much to fear.

They should hold the debates anyway and just put an 'empty chair' where Trump would stand.

I certainly didn't ignore that. But what does that have to do with a debate schedule put together by a bi-partisan group a year ago?

It is ridiculous to hold the debated opposite NFL games. Change 'em. What's the problem?

He claims the DNC is trying to rig the debates. Which is total BS. The committee that decides the schedule is made is equally of Dems and Reps.

The debates can easily be recorded and are often shown as reruns. Of course, the media will supply you with endless carefully edited highlights (lowlights?) just so you get to know (or not know) what the important bits (soundbites?) were. ;)
