It's the latest insane twist in perhaps the craziest election season ever: it looks as though Bernie Sanders is going to debate Donald Trump. Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton had declined to debate Sanders again before the all-important California primary on June 7,  and the Sanders campaign, which is seriously behind in delegates and short on cash, was livid.  A Sanders/Trump debate would be a huge media spectacle, with major free exposure for both campaigns. 

Could a debate with Donald Trump be the shot in the arm that the Sanders campaign needs to stay in the race? 

Trump has said he would be open to debating Sanders if the proceeds were donated to charity. Sanders responded on Twitter “Game on. I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7 primary.”
