As you may have heard, Donald Trump said he wanted to debate Bernie Sanders—and Sanders jumped all over it. Then Trump said it was all a joke, making Sanders look like a fool.

I have a few thoughts about that! Namely, that Sanders is out of his depth, and that I find it incredibly problematic that this was obviously a bid to try to coerce Hillary Clinton into debating him, after she already said no.

Meanwhile, Jeff Weaver tries to salvage it by saying Team Sanders didn't think it was a joke and that they hope Trump doesn't "chicken out."

I can't even.

I can't.
