Gennifer Flowers Says She Will Attend First Presidential Debate As Trump’s Guest

Gennifer Flowers, a model and entertainer who had an affair with Bill Clinton while he was governor of Arkansas, said that she will attend Monday night’s presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, at Trump’s invitation.

Flowers’ assistant confirmed her attendance to BuzzFeed. The Trump campaign did not respond to The Huffington Post’s request for confirmation.

Trump threatened to invite Flowers if Mark Cuban, a celebrity billionaire backing Clinton, attended the debate.

Juanita Broaddrick, a retired nurse who maintains that Clinton raped her in 1978, told HuffPost that Trump had not asked her to attend.

“It’s a little late to make travel arrangements but it would be delightful to attend such an epic event. Maybe I will get an invitation to the next one,” she said in a Twitter message. 

Monday night’s showdown, which will be the first time Hillary Clinton and Trump appear on the same stage as candidates, is expected to draw upwards of 100 million viewers.

If Trump indeed invited Flowers to the debate, it will be a virtually unprecedented stunt for a presidential candidate.

President Bill Clinton admitted in sworn testimony in 1998 that he had had an affair with Flowers while he was governor of Arkansas. During his 1992 presidential campaign, he denied having the affair, which Flowers claimed lasted 12 years.

Trump experimented with dredging up 1990s-era conspiracy theories and scandals associated with the Clintons, including the former president’s well-documented sexual peccadilloes. But he has mostly refrained from employing these attacks in recent months.

In inviting Flowers to the debate, Trump has decided it’s wise to humiliate the first female presidential nominee from a major party for her husband’s infidelities.

103. Tyler Young – September 18, 2016

Local cyclist, Tyler Young, is the leader of the Great Ride Series bike rides from Stockton’s Performance Bicycles in Lincoln Center. More than just a cyclist or ride leader, Tyler is one of the most well known cyclists in Stockton. His dedication to his riders is unparalleled. He started cycling again just a few years ago and used it to lose weight and get back in shape. Since then, he has used his passion for riding to encourage people all over Stockton to get out on their bikes.

Every Saturday, Tyler leads a ride from the Performance store. A family-friendly ride that often gets up to 50 riders, Tyler takes his fellow cyclists through north Stockton neighborhoods and on to the Calaveras bike path before heading to University of the Pacific and the turn-around point at Starbucks on the Miracle Mile. 

To get an idea of what Tyler means to local cyclists, I spoke with a few of his riders, Kelly Rose, Kiel Penrod and Karen Jordan, during a recent Saturday morning ride.

Tyler’s impact on local cyclists is clear. Talk to any of his riders and they will tell you he is the reason they continue to get out on their bike.

Tyler has a ride for all cyclists, no matter what “tribe” they belong to. His Saturday rides have every level of cyclist, from families riding with small children to die-hard lycra-clad road cyclists. He also leads a weekly mountain bike specific ride and a Sunday road bike specific ride of varying distances.

Be sure to check out his ride schedule on Meetup and look for him and the rest of his riders on Strava. Here’s a video from a recent Saturday ride.

Follow Tyler on Instagram, @roguefreeman.

“He doesn’t care if you’re slow or fast, he just wants you to be there.”

-Kiel Penrod, local cyclist

“I push myself to show up because of Tyler. This has become a big part of my life.”

-Karen Jordan, local cyclist

The music for episode 103 is “Calaveras Super Highway” by Michael Klooster & Ernest B. Mancuso, featuring Justin Anderson.
