Young filmmaker Travis Lien of Washington state has the best tweet of Debate Day: “Am I supposed to know who Gennifer Flowers is (?)”
That’s a reference to the trending debate over whether Bill Clinton’s former Arkansas mistress will take a front-row seat in Monday night’s presidential debate.
Of course, Flowers will not be at Hofstra. Trump’s vice presidential pick and his campaign manager both deny it. But the notion has taken a life of its own on social media, with many sites insisting the uncomfortable seating is happening.
The issue was sparked by NBA billionaire Mark Cuban tweeted he had scored a ticket to the debate:
Just got a front row seat to watch @HillaryClinton overwhelm @realDonaldTrump at the “Humbling at Hofstra” on Monday. It Is On !

To which Trump responded Saturday — “If dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Jennifer Flowers right alongside of him!”
After deleting the original misspelled tweet, he double downed:
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!
