Bill Maher: Donald Trump Chickened Out Of Debate With Bernie Sanders

Bill Maher called out Donald Trump for always talking tough, but then chickening out of a debate with Bernie Sanders.

Bill Maher interviewed Bernie Sanders on a number of issues Friday night on HBO's Real Time, and when the matter of a Trump debate came up, Maher pounced.

Maher said, "And we were teased about something that was going to be an amazing show I thought, earlier this week which was a Bernie Sanders/Donald Trump debate."

Sanders replied with a "Hump," I would have loved - let me just say this"

Maher jumped in, “Mr. Macho chickened out”

Bernie continued, “First he said he would do it,” Sanders said. “Then he said he wouldn’t do it. Then he said he would do it. Then he said he wouldn’t do it. So, I would hope that if he changed his mind four times in two days, change it a fifth time. Trump claims to be a real tough guy, pushes people around. Hey, Donald, come on up. Let’s have a debate about the future of America.”
