On Friday news came that Mark Cuban is attending the first presidential debate, which is taking place on Monday. Cuban announced he would be attending the debate, at the invitation of Hillary Clinton. Billing it as the “Humbling at Hofstra,” Cuban says he plans to watch closely as Clinton tries to “overwhelm” Trump.
Trump then had his normal Trumpian response…by threatening to invite Gennifer Flowers, who alleged a relationship with former President Bill Clinton back when he was governor of Arkansas:
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!

And Gennifer Flowers agreed to attend, tweeting the following:
Hi Donald. You know I'm in your corner and will definitely be at the debate!…💋

Well, the internet tore both Trump AND Flowers apart:
.@realDonaldTrump you might be the least Presidential candidate in American history.

.@realDonaldTrump what's so funny is you think this would have an impact. Only one person on that stage freaks out over stupid things.

@realDonaldTrump "I'm running for President. I am fit for office. My social skills are indistinguishable from those of a nine-year-old"

@realDonaldTrump ….How about we get all the people that you NEVER paid and sit them down there too??

@gennflowers You're in the corner of a sexist misogynist with four rape accusations (including a 13 y/o girl)? Really? Seems dumb.
