Now what? NFL says it never sent Donald Trump a letter about a conflict with the debates

Donald Trump is tweeting pretty furiously today, but both the mainstream media and social media are more interested in what he told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos in an interview scheduled to air Sunday morning. First was general outrage over comments he made about the parents of fallen Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who spoke of their son at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night.

The Twitter pile-on was just getting started when another excerpt from the Stephanopoulos interview began making the rounds. In this excerpt, Trump complained that the debates had been scheduled to benefit Hillary Clinton, airing at the same time as NFL games, echoing an allegation he had tweeted late Friday night.

According to a transcript, Trump not only told Stephanopoulos that he didn’t know how the dates (set in September 2015) were picked; he added that he had even received a letter from the NFL agreeing with him that is was ridiculous to schedule the debates against football games.

Of course, it didn’t take long for the press to get a hold of the NFL, which denied that any such letter had been sent.

Maybe ABC will do the same favor that CBS and “60 Minutes” did for Clinton and cut this part of the interview from the broadcast?

In all seriousness, Hillary Clinton for the most part has the political savvy to lie about things that aren’t so easily checkable, although she’ll slip up every now and then and claim to have dodged sniper fire. If only Trump were shrewd enough to realize that journalists have a much lower threshold for “easily checkable” when it comes to GOP candidates.
