Presidential Debate Commission make last-minute change - renders debate unlikely

The Commission unilaterally made the debate virtual. 

Trump wasted no time responding, saying on Fox Business Network, “I am not going to waste my time on a virtual debate. That is not what debating is all about.” Sen. Ted Cruz also came to Trump’s defense on Fox and Friends saying, “I think they’re very happy for Joe not to leave his basement for another minute between now and Election Day, and if the commission sticks to we’re going to do it virtually, I think the president is right to say I’m not going to participate in this charade” (Breitbart). 

Hugh Hewitt: That the #NeverTrump Debate Commission sucker-punched Team Trump is shocking. It has no standing in law. It is supposed to be a half-way house for the parties to meet in and agree on debate formats.  It’s diseased and drunk on power, and obviously anti-@realDonaldTrump” (Twitter). 

Sen. Tom Cotton—on with Hugh: “I have to say, I’m shocked that the Debate Commission didn’t even consult with President Trump’s campaign before making this radical change. I mean, they consult with the campaigns when they talk about the height of the [lecturns], Hugh, and the size of the notepads that will be on the podiums” (Hugh Hewitt).
