Bill Clinton’s ex-mistress Gennifer Flowers says she will accept Donald Trump’s offer to sit in the front row during Monday night’s debate against Hillary Clinton.
Saturday afternoon Flowers responded to Trump’s offer on Twitter expressing her support for the Republican nominee and saying she will “definitely” be at the upcoming debate.
Earlier Saturday, in retaliation to news that the Clinton campaign invited vocal Trump critic Mark Cuban to sit in the front row during Monday’s debate, Trump threatened to “perhaps” seat Flowers right beside him.
Trump initially misspelled Flowers’ first name as “Jennifer” but quickly corrected the mistake.
Cuban announced that he would be at the debate Thursday.
Flowers claimed during the 1992 election that she had had a 12-year affair with then-candidate Bill Clinton. At the time Hillary Clinton defended her husband. In 1998, Bill Clinton admitted to having had a sexual relationship with Flowers while under oath.
With many expecting Monday evening’s debate to break viewing records, the prospect of yet another debate narrative — this one juxtaposing former mistress with long-suffering-wife-turned-presidential-candidate — likely will further increase interest.
Flowers’ personal assistant Judy Stell confirmed her planned attendance to Buzzfeed News Saturday.
“Ms. Flowers has agreed to join Donald at the debate,” she said according to Buzzfeed.
