As my colleague, Jay Caruso, notes, both major party candidates are engaged in a full court press in trying to troll one another. First, Hillary Clinton invited billionaire and Trump-twitter-stalker Mark Cuban to the debates. Donald Trump extended an invitation to Gennifer Flowers.
Now it seems that Gennifer Flowers might have company:
When Juanita Broaddrick heard Bill Clinton mistress Gennifer Flowers could be attending the first presidential debate as Donald Trump’s guest, she says that might be an opportunity she would welcome, too.
Juanita Broaddrick“Sure I would like to be at such an epic event just to look Hillary in the face,” Broaddrick exclusively tells The American Mirror.
When asked what she would say to Clinton, Broaddrick responded, “Remember me? I’m the one your husband raped and you threatened. I’m still here telling the truth and you are a liar.”
Broaddrick says then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton raped her in a Little Rock hotel room in 1978 while he was campaigning for governor.
She claims after the incident, Hillary confronted her and grabbed her arm in an attempt to silence her.
But wait, as the man said, there’s more:

Personally, I am all in favor of this. Hillary Clinton was a prime mover in the discrediting and harassing of women who had been sexually assaulted by her husband. She wasn’t a betrayed spouse, she was a co-conspirator and accomplice. We are well passed the point where sympathy will attach to Hillary by exhibiting the victims of Bill Clinton.
If Gennifer Flowers is there, she will be interviewed and she will educate a large number of young progressives — who by the way are in love with trigger warnings, consent being expressed at every stage of a sexual encounter, “always believe women,” Title IX rape Star Chambers, and who look on Emma “Mattress Girl” Sulkowicz as a hero — on Bill Clinton’s antics. Even if they want to try to engender sympathy for her they first have to explain what the attack was about.
What I really don’t understand was what Clinton was trying to prove by pulling the Mark Cuban stunt. Her sole competitive advantage in this election is that she is (wrongly, in my view) perceived as a more serious person than Donald Trump. By engaging in this battle of clownishness, a battle for which she is supremely unsuited, she has forfeited her own claim to being serious and decided to fight on a ground of Donald Trump’s choosing.
