A: The media is so dumb and mindless. They continue to believe whatever Trump tells them as if he is somehow credible when in fact he's been proven to to be a liar time after time. Trump's claims about skipping mock debates is his latest lie. The man is a pathological liar and cannot be taken seriously even if the dumb media continues to repeat his foolish lies as facts again and again. Shame on the media for helping to promote Trump and his propaganda (information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view).
