Hillary knows Fox would tear her apart and utterly doom her campaign with the really tough questions. She can hardly beat a socialist old man. Trump is going to light her up like a Christmas tree and severely crush her during their first debate. Can’t wait for it.

Fox News:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has declined an invitation to a proposed Fox News-hosted Democratic presidential debate that her primary opponent Bernie Sanders tentatively accepted last week.

The campaign released a statement Monday, almost a week after Fox News invited both Democratic presidential candidates to a final debate in California before the June 7 primaries.

“We have declined Fox News’ invitation to participate in a debate in California,” Clinton Campaign Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri said in a statement. “As we have said previously, we plan to compete hard in the remaining primary states, particularly California, while turning our attention to the threat a Donald Trump presidency poses.

“We believe that Hillary Clinton’s time is best spent campaigning and meeting directly with voters across California and preparing for a general election campaign that will ensure the White House remains in Democratic hands.” More

Politico:

“Naturally, Fox News is disappointed that Secretary Clinton has declined our debate invitation, especially given that the race is still contested and she had previously agreed to a final debate before the California primary,” Fox News Vice President and Washington Managing Editor Bill Sammon said in a statement.

Sanders also expressed frustration: “I am disappointed but not surprised by Secretary Clinton’s unwillingness to debate before the largest and most important primary in the presidential nominating process.”

A DNC spokesperson did not immediately return a request for comment. More
