OK, well, he clearly just wants to save his energy up for the Really Big Show.

Oh, totally. And besides: He wouldn’t want to give anyone the impression that he’d do anything “inappropriate”.
Trump’s statement makes total sense when you remember that, to a fault, he’s concerned with what would be appropriate.

Maybe this isn’t about what’s appropriate after all. Maybe Donald’s just some kind of … “leightweight.”

Trump just backed-out of a debate with Sanders. That he even can't handle a substantive exchange with a socialist speaks volumes. Bad call.
