She is just mad the gap is closing and she does not want to do the debate in New York which is sanders home state. I heard on the news today, her support among black voters dropped significantly. Which I think was the best news I heard all day. Bernie does not take cheap shots that's trump he even agreed to drop the whole email scandal and unlike trump, did not say something along the lines of "if Hilary can't please her husband, how can she fix America" if anything that was a cheap shit by trump.1

I really haven't been following politics for a while. In fact I hadn't even heard about this, but it doesn't surprise me. I don't think it is a weakness so much as a carefully thought out strategy. Clinton generally does better in polls when she plays the weak little victim. "Boohoo, the mean men are picking on me, just because I have a vagina". That is her plan. it has worked to boost her poll numbers in the past.
Luckily for her Trump refused to debate because the republican party was teamed up to sabotage him in the debates. While his reason for not debating was clearly not because his opponents being mean, she can now twist the facts to make anyone calling her out on it, as being sexist for not seeing Trump as weak, but calling her weak. That is the way that feminists frequently invent untrue double standards.
Anyone calling her out for it, would need to be careful to point out the difference between the reasons she has done it, and the reasons Trump did it, or else she can make them look sexist even if they aren't. The more she is seen as a victim, the more people seem to support her, and I am sure that is what she is counting on. That is why women can demand to be treated as an equal, but then you have to handle them with kids gloves or else they act like you are discriminating against them.1
