UPDATED SATURDAY AFTERNOONÂ GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump took Mark Cubanâ€™s pre-debate bait today.Â Though Trump had previously signaled that he wouldnâ€™t dredge up the Clintonsâ€™ marital problems during Mondayâ€™s presidential debate, he apparently doesnâ€™t mind going there before the big face-off. Responding to Cubanâ€™s tweeted announcement that the Shark TankÂ co-star (and Hillary supporter)Â wouldÂ be in the front row atÂ Mondayâ€™s â€œHumbling at Hofstra,â€ Trump crudely suggests a possible seatmate for Cuban. And note the dig at Cubanâ€™s 2004 ABC reality show The Benefactor, an Apprentice rip-off forgotten by almosteveryone.
Maybe Trump was still smarting from last nightâ€™s Real Time With Bill Maher. The HBO show host opened his monologue with some wisecracks about the debate, including this: â€œThe bar for Trump is so low, itâ€™s like being in a spelling bee with a basset hound: â€˜Yeah, (Clinton) knew all the words but I like the fact that the dog knew not to s**t on the floor.â€ No stranger to cheap shots, Maher then added, â€œI still think Hillary can make this work, but of course I said the same thing about Brad and Angelina.â€ (HBO hasnâ€™t made that clip available as of mid-day Saturday).
AndÂ just to keep this campaign firmly in the bizarre â€“ and TV ratings ever more likely to reachÂ the stratosphere â€“ Gennifer Flowers has tweeted aÂ response to Trump, marked with her signature lipstick kiss. Seriously. No Trump response to the response. Yet.
PREVIOUS Shark Tankâ€˜s Mark Cuban, who tweeted last night that heâ€™ll have a front-row seat at this Mondayâ€™s â€œHumbling at Hofstraâ€ presidential debate, isnâ€™t the only celebrity hitting social media in anticipation of the big day. TV legend Carl Reiner sides with Hillary, Family Guyâ€˜s Seth McFarlane boos audiences, country icon Charlie Daniels takes on the media and The Late Show host Stephen Colbert, well, you need to see his for yourself. Take a look, and weâ€™ll update periodically as others join the pre-debate debate.
