After Backing Out of Debate with Sanders, Trump Proves Once and For All What a Fraud He Really Is

Let’s face it, while many of us were rather excited at the prospect of a cross-party debate between Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, we all knew it was probably never going to happen. Either the two parties would have done something to prevent it from happening, no one would offer to pay the $10 million that was being demanded, or, like what actually ended up happening, Donald Trump would find some flimsy excuse to avoid the challenge that he issued.

Ignoring that actual ramifications and consequences that might have transpired had this event taken place, instead let’s focus on the fact that Trump is nothing but a man-child coward who likes to run his mouth during a speech or an interview but scurries away whenever he’s actually called upon to back up his false bravado.

Sure, he’s fine using his power and influence to belittle people from a distance or bully those he feels can’t defend themselves. He’s been doing it his whole life. But time and time again, especially during his campaign, he’s ducked challenge after challenge when he’s realized he’s going up against someone he knows can fight back.

That’s why I knew deep down that, no matter what, we would never see this debate.

At this point, you have to be an imbecile to actually believe Trump is some “macho tough guy” who “tells it like it is.” He’s someone who knows how to run his mouth, but when it comes time to back up his big talk, he’s nowhere to be found.

He’s a con man.

When Trump first brought up the fact he’d like to debate Sanders, it never really occurred to him that the Vermont senator might call his bluff. After all, Trump often just says whatever pops into his mind, usually without thinking. When Sanders did, in fact, call that bluff, “The Donald” couldn’t simply back down, since that would make him look weak and cowardly. Instead, he countered by saying he’d only do it for the ridiculous sum of $10 million. Clearly he knew that number was outrageous and never really believed anyone would actually offer to pay it — but they did.

Then almost instantly Donald Trump put out a bullsh*t excuse statement saying that, despite his demands being met, he wasn’t going to debate Bernie Sanders.

This is the guy who likes to talk tough about Russia, China, Mexico, ISIS, Muslims and North Korea — who’s now run away from three debates. First he was scared of Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, then he didn’t want Sen. Ted Cruz to expose the fact that he really doesn’t know anything, and now he backs out of this debate with Bernie Sanders because he simply knows he’d lose.

Oh, and what about the millions that could have gone to charity? Since Trump cowardly backed out of the debate, is he going to personally write a check for that money that will no longer be donated?

I’m going to go ahead and guess “no.”

This is simply who Donald Trump is.

He’s a thin-skinned man-child who likes to act as if he’s some “John Wayne” type of tough guy when he’s nothing more than an insecure egomaniac who just happens to be a fantastic salesman.

When you get right down to who Donald Trump truly is, everything he claims to be is nothing but an act to cover up who he really is — a con man, a bully and coward.
