Trump adviser Gen. Flynn wants to ban Mark Cuban from debate: He’s ‘not a legitimate person’


Gen. Michael Flynn speaks to NBC (screen grab)

Donald Trump adviser Gen. Michael Flynn lashed out at Mark Cuban on Sunday, declaring that the anti-Trump billionaire should not be allowed to attend Monday night’s presidential debate because he is “not a legitimate person.”

In response the the news that Cuban will attend the first presidential debate of the 2016 general election, Trump tweeted over the weekend that he may invite Gennifer Flowers, who allegedly had an affair with Hillary Clinton’s husband decades ago.

On Sunday, Flynn deflected questions from NBC’s Chuck Todd about the invitation to Flowers.

“I would just go with what you have seen,” Flynn said. “And we’ll wait to see what happens tomorrow night.”

“Was it appropriate to invite Mark Cuban?” the Trump adviser continued. “I mean, he’s not a legitimate person. Why is he invited? I mean, again, I would leave this tit for tat. This is about the big issues this country is worried about.”

Bloomberg to fact-check debate on-screen

By Jessie Hellmann


Bloomberg will be the only TV network to display on-screen fact-checks of statements made by Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton during the first presidential debate Monday, Politico reports.


According to Politico, none of the major networks has publicly committed to on-screen fact-checking during the debate and will leave that to post-debate analysis.

The Clinton campaign has called for the media to aggressively fact-check Trump.

“We’re really focused on this opportunity that Hillary has to speak directly to the voters on the issues. But we are concerned that Donald Trump may lie; he may throw misinformation out there; and that Hillary will have to spend all of her time trying to correct the record rather than talking about the things she wants to accomplish," Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Monday on "CBS This Morning."

"All that we're asking if that the record be checked. So if Donald Trump lies, which he has repeatedly done in the past, that that be simply checked."

NBC's Matt Lauer was criticized for not correcting several of Trump's statements during a presidential forum earlier this month.
