Donald Trump just nixed the chance to plant one of the victims of Bill Clinton’s war on women in the audience for the Sunday night presidential debate.

“Candice Jackson — a lawyer who works with Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones and Dolly Kyle — was hoping to bring at least one of the women to St. Louis to sit in the front row and throw Hillary Clinton off her game,” reports New York Post gossip columnist Richard Johnson.

But Trump, who considered bringing Gennifer Flowers to the last debate, now says he is sticking to the issues. “I want to win this election on my policies for the future, not on Bill Clinton’s past,” he emailed Johnson. “Jobs, trade, ending illegal immigration, veteran care, and strengthening our military is what I really want to be talking about.”

Hey, did somebody write that email for him? Sure sounds uncharacteristically conciliatory.

Regardless, Jackson told Johnson that the women famously derided by Bill Clinton’s camp as bimbos and trailer park trash have formed an informal support group. “The women talk together, and they talk to me. It’s the kind of club you never want to be a member of.”
