Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s lies keep growing. In an effort to weasel out of debating Hillary Clinton, Trump has repeatedly blamed his opponent for the scheduled debates that were approved by the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates in 2015. That lie apparently not being bold enough, The Donald now claims the NFL wrote him a letter complaining that two of the debates are scheduled against pro football games.
“I got a letter from the NFL saying ‘this is ridiculous, why are the debates against’ — because the NFL doesn’t want to go against the debates because the debates are going to be pretty massive from what I understand,” Trump said.
The NFL denied any letter was sent.
CNN commentator Brian Stelter followed up with the NFL, and asked the league if it really did send a letter. The NFL told him that Trump is full of shit. An NFL spokesman said Saturday: “While we’d obviously wish the debate commission could find another night, we did not send a letter to Trump.”
