The 2016 nominees have been making news with the guests they've chosen for Monday night's presidential debate. Mark Cuban will be sitting in the front row cheering on Hillary Clinton and the rumor was Gennifer Flowers would not be far away, supporting Donald Trump. Trump did not formally invite Flowers, a former mistress of President Bill Clinton. He does, however, have a pretty impressive group of American heroes on his list.
Among Trump camp guests: Gen. Mike Flynn, Gen. Keith Kellogg, Bruce LaVelle, Mark Geist (survived Benghazi), Karen Vaughn (Gold Star mom)— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) September 26, 2016
Mark "Oz" Geist, one of the four Benghazi secret soldiers who survived the September 11, 2012 ambush in Libya, will be an especially powerful presence. He was one of two Benghazi soldiers, the other being John "Tig" Tiegen, who spoke at the Republican National Convention over the summer. He also starred in an ad for the NRA explaining why Hillary Clinton is the wrong candidate for gun owners.
Geist is a reminder of how the former secretary of state failed to lead during the Libya raid and stalled on giving the greenlight for our soldiers to head toward the U.S. embassy as it came under siege. He is also a reminder of her most unfortunate soundbite.
That should make Clinton much more nervous than Flowers.
