In a primary season full of surprises, the possibility of a Sanders-Trump debate looms on the horizon.
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel, Trump had astoundingly sane and reasonable things to say. He noted that he and Bernie Sanders were both fighting a "rigged system." Trump cited the Democrats' use of superdelegates, noting that "I think it's very unfair what's happening to Bernie Sanders."
Hillary Clinton recently backed out of her commitment
to debate Sanders in California before the primary.
Kimmel read a statement to Trump from Sanders, suggesting a debate between the two. Trump was agreeable, with a caveat.
Trump noted that the networks are the ones who make the big money on the debates, citing the facts that the Republican debate on Fox had 24 million viewers, and the one on CNN had 23 million viewers--the largest audiences each has ever had. He said the money should have gone to charity, and agreed to debate Sanders on that condition.
I've already fallen in love
with Joe Scarborough for pointing out the crooked discrepancies in the DNC, and fallen a little out of love with Robert Reich due to
his recent Facebook post. Now I'm liking Donald Trump a whole lot more. Clearly, anything can happen in this election cycle.
Kimmel noted that Sanders would appear on his show tonight.
