Trump Debate Invitees Include Benghazi Survivor, Gold Star Mom

screen-shot-2016-09-20-at-5-17-52-pmCNN has just released a partial list of Donald Trump debate invitees.

Gennifer Flowers: Out

Benghazi survivor Mark Geist: In

CNN’s report has been confirmed by Fox News.

The republican nominee is, perhaps unknowingly, following the advice of NBC’s Chuck Todd, who said yesterday that Trump would be better off bringing “one of the grieving Benghazi family members,” than somebody like Gennifer Flowers, which Todd felt was getting too personal.

Trump instead opted for a Benghazi survivor in Geist, who appeared in an NRA ad a few months ago called “Stop Hillary Clinton.”
