Hillary Clinton was trying to be cute by inviting Mark Cuban to Monday night’s debate to taunt Donald Trump, but Trump, refusing to be outdone, has raised the stakes. Expect to see Gennifer Flowers, Monica Lewinsky and more of Bill Clinton’s extramarital lovers sitting in the front row.
If dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Gennifer Flowers right alongside of him!

Within hours, Gennifer Flowers announced that she is backing Trump and has accepted the Republican nominee’s invitation.
Hi Donald. You know I’m in your corner and will definitely be at the debate!…💋

The move by the Trump team appears to indicate that Trump will be bringing up former President Bill Clinton’s marital infidelities in an attempt to humiliate Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton at some point during the debate.
Donald Trump has said he believes it’s fair fame to bring up Bill Clinton’s extramarital affairs when running against Hillary Clinton, and he specifically mentioned Monica Lewinsky when doing so.
The Today Show quoted Trump as saying, “You look at whether it’s Monica Lewinsky or Paula Jones or many of them. That certainly will be fair game.”
Insider rumors are now circulating that the Trump team is assembling a powerful front row of Hillary Clinton’s famous lifelong nemeses, the women she described as “bimbo eruptions.”
Bill Clinton testified under oath in 1998 that he had a sexual affair with Flowers.
Trump was responding to billionaire Mark Cuban, a Hillary Clinton supporter who frequently slams Trump. Cuban on Thursday said he accepted an invitation from Clinton to sit in the front row at Monday’s presidential debate.
Trump’s public reference to Bill Clinton’s extramarital affairs will likely roil the presidential race just two days before the first debate.
Onlookers have speculated about whether the unpredictable GOP presidential nominee would bring up Flowers and other names, such as Monica Lewinsky and Juanita Broaddrick, to Hillary Clinton’s face in the debates.
