The Hill – Gennifer Flowers isn’t expected to be at the presidential debate Monday night, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign manager said Sunday.
“We do not expect her to be a guest of the Trump campaign,” Kellyanne Conway said.
In a tweet Saturday, Trump offered to bring Flowers to the debate, in response to the attendance of billionaire Hillary Clinton supporter Mark Cuban.
Flowers, who had an extramarital affair with former President Bill Clinton while he was governor of Arkansas, later responded on Twitter saying she would “definitely” be at the debate.
Conway said that Trump’s tweet was just an effort to put Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, “on notice” for inviting Cuban and trying to get into his head.
I don’t care which side of the political gulf you’re on, this news has to disappoint you. Monday is the first debate in the most WWE campaign in U.S. history, so it needs that Vince McMahon flair.
The public deserves nothing less than for this thing to go full Clown Show. Bring on everyone from both candidates sordid pasts. Donald Trump’s ex-wives. Bill Clinton’s mistresses. Every F-list celebrity from “The Apprentice.” Hillary’s crooked business associates. Dennis Rodman. Juanita Broderick. Gary Busey. Ken Starr. Monica Lewinsky. Paula Jones. Marla Maples, to talk about how The Donald made out with her while she was in labor. Bring it on.
This isn’t a presidential campaign. It’s the ultimate reality show, starring the ultimate reality show stars. And if they’re not going to try to psyche each other out and just fill the seats with sycophants and coat holders, we’re not getting the full effect. So I’m begging Gennifer Flowers, Mark Cuban and anyone else who can give the debate the drama it deserves to get in that hall on their own. Don’t do it for your candidate. Do it for democracy.
