Well, in a twist that is likely to surprise no one, Donald Trump has said he will not be debating Bernie Sanders.
Here is his official statement:

Note that in his statement, Trump used pejorative nicknames and slights as he insisted he had no intention to debate someone who is going to come in in second place.
Also worth mentioning is that moments before Trump’s campaign issued his refusal to debate, the Sanders campaign issued a statement claiming that they were prepared to take up the offer of one of the networks that had expressed interest in donating money to make the debate happen.

Anyway, we can all go back to our regularly scheduled programming now and stop talking about fairy tale debates that were never going to happen in the first place.
